Earlier tonight, Capcom announced a brand new action-adventure game, Remember Me, being developed by Dontnod Entertainment. You can watch gameplay footage of the game above, and read more details on the project below.
Remember Me takes place in Neo-Paris in the year 2084. This is a setting where personal memories can be digitized, bought, sold and traded. It’s a world without privacy, where social networks have become incredibly prevalent, and citizens themselves have accepted to trade privacy for the comfort of smart technology.
In Remember Me, you play as a character named Nilin, who is a former memory hunter. She has the ability to break into people’s minds, after which she can steal or alter their memories. Scared of her abilities, the authorities have arrested Nilin and wiped her memory clean. Ultimately, she escapes from prison and sets out to recover her memory.
Remember Me uses a “Memory Remix” feature, where you enter people’s minds using Nilin’s power and alter their memories in real-time. This will result in characters changing their perspective of both themselves and the people around them.
Capcom will publish Remember Me in North America sometime in May 2013 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game have localized voice-overs in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian, as well as subtitles in Russian, Polish, and Brazilian Portuguese.
