Capcom brought us some info on an awesome looking new IP entitled “Remember Me”. The title looks like a blend of an action/stealth title, Mirror’s Edge from EA, and the old school game from Midway Psi-Ops – high praise indeed. Here is what we know about the game so far:
Personal memories can now be digitized, bought, sold and traded. The last remnants of privacy and intimacy have been swept away in what appears to be a logical progression of the explosive growth of social networks at the beginning of the 21st century. The citizens themselves have accepted this surveillance society in exchange for the comfort only smart technology can provide. This memory economy gives immense power over society to just a handful of people.
Remember Me is a 3rd person action adventure where players take on the role of Nilin, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories. The authorities, fearful of her knowledge and capabilities have arrested Nilin and wiped her memory clean. After her escape from prison, Nilin sets out on a mission to recover her identity, helped by her last and only friend. This search for her past leads to her being hunted by the very people that created this surveillance society.
We”ve also got some sweet screenshots to go along with the debut trailer. You can check out both below as we wait for the May 2013 release date on PS3, 360, and PC!
