The Thing: Remastered Coming to PC and Consoles This Year

Take a trip to Outpost 31 when Nightdive Studios releases The Thing: Remastered for consoles and PC later this year.

Called a complete restoration of the 2002 third-person survival horror shooter game, The Thing: Remastered has been upgraded for modern consoles and computers. You can see the official trailer below.

The game’s description on Steam reads, “You are Cpt J.F. Blake, leader of a U.S. Special Forces rescue team sent to investigate the blood-curdling events and enigmatic deaths of the American scientific team that transpired at the Outpost 31 research facility located in the frozen wastelands of Antarctica. Within these inhospitable surroundings your team encounters a strange shape-shifting alien life-form that assumes the appearance of people that it kills. Trapped by the elements and infected by this horrific entity, using all your team members is critical if you hope to accomplish your objectives, let alone survive. If you only knew which ones were still human…”

The game was written and created as a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s classic 1982 film of the same name. No release date has been announced yet.
