3D Realms’ top-down action role-playing game, Bombshell, has been delayed into 2016. This news was announced via a press release that didn’t mention why the release date was pushed, but did detail its Digital Deluxe Edition as well as a prequel that is set to release separately next year.
The digital-exclusive title’s standard price in the US will be $34.99, and the Deluxe Edition will be priced at $39.99. It’s unclear whether the latter will be available for all platforms or not, but we’re told that it will include a digital copy of the game’s soundtrack, digital art book & world map overviews, and for PC players, an early beta access to the Bombshell Prequel, which is “a retro-style first-person shooter.” The prequel’s description is as follows:
Follow the events leading up to Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison’s explosive encounter with Professor Jadus Heskel that cost her her arm, her squad, and her reputation in a retro-style first-person shooter – built in the classic 90’s era Build Engine known from Duke Nukem 3D and Shadow Warrior. Then head online for some oldschool competitive multiplayer, Bombshell-style!
We haven’t been given a release date for the console versions of the game, but 3D has confirmed that Bombshell will be available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We’ll update our readers when we have more information.
