PowerSlave – additionally recognized as Exhumed (its significantly better European title) or Seireki 1999: Pharaoh no Fukkatsu – was a Build Engine FPS launched on PC, PlayStation 1, and SEGA Saturn between 1996-1997. It was fairly laborious to search out till it acquired a shock re-release on GOG final yr, however solely the inferior MS-DOS model with horrible controls and bizarre design.

Now Nightdive Studios CEO Stephen Kick tweeted a tease suggesting that PowerSlave/Exhumed could be the next recreation to get his studio’s remaster therapy – a close-up shot that’s clearly one in all PowerSlave’s Egyptian-themed symbols. Given that Nightdive is especially recognized for first-person video games and its own Blood: Remastered additionally makes use of the Build Engine, a remaster of PowerSlave/Exhumed would match nicely into its catalogue.

Of course, the large query is whether or not the remaster will observe the PC model or the console model, the place the sport forgoed straight ranges in favour of a extra Metroidvania-like design. An unofficial remake known as PowerSlave EX could be discovered on-line when you search laborious sufficient, which was made by Samuel Villarreal – who works for Nightdive.
