XIII Returns with a Remaster Later This Year

Well, this is a very nice surprise. Developers PlayMagic are working on a remaster of XIII, the 2003 Ubisoft classic based on the comic of the same name. We don’t have a firm release date for the PC version yet, but the reveal trailer states ” November 2019″ and a PlayStation Blog entry says that the game will be released on November 13, 2019 for PlayStation 4.

The 2003 game had us playing as the titular XIII, an amnesiac voiced by the always excellent David Duchovny. After waking up on a beach with no recollection of past events, our hero would have to use stealth and action to get past enemies hell-bent on his demise, as he searched for the truth behind what happened to him that caused his memory loss. Thirteen action packed chapters full of twists and cool gadgets would follow, ending on a cliffhanger that promised a sequel that never came, sadly (though this remaster might generate enough buzz for the franchise’s revival).
