"Destroy All Humans" is going to let players wreak havoc in the 1950s all over again. THQ Nordic has announced they are working on a remake and will be shedding more light on the title in the upcoming weeks. It appears as though video game fans and media will be able to get a closer look at the game at E3 when it kicks off this weekend, though there isn't any indication as to whether or not the title will be playable.

Remake - not a 'Destroy All Humans' remaster

It's important to note that THQ Nordic is not talking about simply souping up the graphics from the much beloved 2005 title.

This game, which will be available on the PS4 and Xbox One is a remake from the ground up. That doesn't mean it's going to be straying from its original subject matter.

Before the official reveal, Amazon.com accidentally leaked the upcoming title, which is one of the ways we know that it will once again be set in the 1950s. That was, of course, a period of time that was absolutely in love with science fiction movies that centered around "visits" from all sorts of alien lifeforms.

"Destroy All Humans" has not been given an official release date, but the Amazon listing had a placeholder release date of 2020. During the reveal, THQ did not shed any light on an official release date, so for now, 2020 is as close as we're going to get to knowing when it will arrive.

Gamespot reports that the since removed listing claimed the game is, "putting you in the role of an invading conqueror named Crypto-137. You can pose as humans to "infiltrate their fragile democracy," use powers and weapons like psychokinesis and an anal probe gun, and explore Area 42 in a restored mission"

The ability to disguise your alien character as a human, use telekinesis and shoot an anal probe gun are all callbacks to the original series.

Knowing that it stands to reason you will also be able to destroy whole cities from your flying saucer.

THQ has been busy

"Destroy All Humans" is just the latest title to be announced by the developers. In the leadup to E3, the company has unveiled another remake in "SpongeBob: Battle for Bikini Bottom". That game will be available on the PC, the Xbox One and the PS4.

As far as original IPs, THQ Nordic has also shown off another installment in the "Darksiders" series. This one was rolled out alongside the full reveal stream of Google Stadia. "Darksiders Genesis" is different from the other three games in the long-running series as it will be top-down and look a bit more like "Diablo" than anything else. This one will feature the horseman Strife as the main character.

"Destroy All Humans" is coming for the PS4 and the Xbox One and it's possible we'll find out exactly when during E3. You can check out the reveal trailer below.
