“This thing doesn’t want to show itself, it wants to hide inside an imitation. It’ll fight if it has to, but it’s vulnerable out in the open. If it takes us over, then it has no more enemies, nobody left to kill it. And then it’s won.”

On Friday during IGN Live, Nightdive Studios, the team behind the remasters of System Shock and Star Wars Dark Forces, have announced that their next project is a remaster of 2002 squad-based horror shooter, The Thing. The game served as a sequel of sorts to John Carpenter’s The Thing as players arrive at Outpost 31 to investigate the strange happenings that occurred after the events of the film.

The reveal trailer can be seen below.

The official synopsis of The Thing: Remastered, according to Nightdive Studios reads “Where the movie ended, the true terror begins. 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 is slated to be released on digitally on PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and Nintendo Switch later in 2024. Keep it locked to Horror News Network for more on The Thing: Remastered.
