It would appear that aliens celebrate the Fourth of July in a different way than Americans do. In a new trailer released by THQ Nordic, the remake of Destroy All Humans! shows just how the Furons put their own twist on the holiday. After doing his best to redecorate Capitol Hill, Cryptosporidium 137 moves onto new pastures. That includes an adventure to a top-secret government base known only as Area 42.
The mischievous Crypto definitely does not like what is in store for his kind in the base. No wonder he’s so pissed off and out for blood. Destroy All Humans! will feature improved visuals, and we see that in action with this new trailer. Crypto displays his arsenal, piloting the flying saucer and destroying buildings as he sees fit. Being able to fly around on a jetpack also makes it easier to navigate around humans.
Speaking of humans, plenty will stand in the way of Crypto in Destroy All Humans! Thankfully, you’ll have plenty of ways to fix that problem. Crypto can mind control individuals, use telekinesis to lift heavy objects for use as projectiles, or dig into his weapons cache. You can reduce people to melted messes or show them their insides with electrocution. Either way, one thing remains clear: Crypto is not here to play.
A long history
Originally arriving back in 2005 on both the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox, Destroy All Humans! introduced us to Cryptosporidium 137. The member of the Furon race crashlanded on Earth – and it just so happens that humans are a valuable resource for the Furons. Ensuring their survival requires the harvesting of human brain stems, and Crypto certainly gets busy. The game’s brand of humor and storytelling made it a success, with three more sequels following. The remake of Destroy All Humans! will launch this July 28 on both Steam and GOG.
