Nightdive Studios Announces ‘The Thing: Remastered’

June 7, 2024

Written by Daniel S. Liuzzi

Nightdive Studios, the masters of remastering cult classic games for modern players (and returning fans), have announced today at the first IGN Live that they’re making a remastered version of the 2002 squad-based game The Thing, based on the cult classic film by the same name.

The Thing takes place after the events of the film where players take on the role of Captain J.F. Blake, the leader of a United States Army Special Forces rescue team sent to investigate the blood-curdling events that transpired in the film. Trapped by the elements and at risk of infection by a horrific entity, Blake must keep his squad together to survive by gaining their trust and ensuring that their fear and paranoia don’t get the best of them … or himself.

The Thing: Remastered Features the following:

  • Return to U.S. Outpost #31: Continue the story of The Thing and face off against terrifying monsters, from scuttling head-spiders and human-like walkers to gigantic multi-tentacled level bosses
  • Who Goes There?: Command a squad of up to four NPCs from Soldier, Medic, and Engineer character classes through the game’s 11 frightening levels
  • The Warmest Place to Hide: Someone in your squad may not be who they appear to be. The shape-shifting alien hides inside an imitation, so keep a watchful eye.
  • Don’t Lose It: Gain the trust of your squad members and minimize their fear levels lest they become defiant or, worse, succumb to paranoia
  • Ultimate Alien Terror: Upgraded models, textures, and animations hand-crafted by Nightdive, plus enhanced lighting and atmospheric effects
  • Stunning Visuals: Up to 4K 120FPS visuals on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S
  • Checkmate: Trophies and Achievements on Windows PC via Steam, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles

 

The Thing: Remastered will be coming out later this year for PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.
