A remake of the old(er) FPS known simply as XIII was announced today. The game features cel-shaded visuals and David Duchovny as the voice of the titular main character. The original originally came out back in 2003 and somehow attained "cult classic" status.

The remake will be out on November 13, 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. The game itself is based on the first five volumes of the comic book series of the same name. The XIII remake is being handled by PlayMagic and will be published by Microids.

“We aim to craft the finest adventure for players and XIII is definitely in line with our publishing strategy. Revisiting this game came naturally as we felt this unique kind of story driven FPS experience was missing in today’s gaming landscape. Our goal is to bring XIII’s compelling story to a new generation of players with the best possible graphics and animations.” Declares François Coulon – Head of Production at Microïds “The PlayMagic team is very excited for the opportunity to remake a true classic; modernizing the graphics, sound and animations while remaining faithful to the original XIII’s incredible look and feel. XIII’s gameplay mechanics are being reworked in an effort to modernize the experience in a way that encompasses the original spirit of the game. We are sure that the fans of the original game will love rediscovering one of their all time favorites while new players discover a truly iconic masterpiece in a new light.” Declares Giuseppe Crugliano, CEO & Creative Director at PlayMagic Ltd.
