Hard Reset PC FPS gets a release date, system requirements breakdown

Hard-Reset-Comic-Story

You’ve got to hand it to Flying Wild Hog, the Polish developer behind Hard Reset. No one had ever heard of the upcoming first-person shooter for PC platforms until mid-July 2011, when a trailer and the first details emerged on what was described as a “dark sci-fi FPS” in the vein of works like Blade Runner. A summer game reveal isn’t an unusual thing, but the release plan was unusual, with a September 2011 window targeted.

Flying Wild Hog has now narrowed down the window to a single day — September 13 — which means that Hard Reset will have gone from initial reveal to release in the space of two months. Such timetables aren’t unusual in this increasingly mobile gaming-oriented environment, but fans of these sorts of FPS games will probably agree that the rapid release is unusual for a game like Hard Reset.

The game will hit Steam on September 13 with a price of $29.99, a press release confirms. You can also pre-order the game, starting today, for an additional 10 percent off. The minimum and recommended PC specs for Hard Reset have also been confirmed, and you can check them out below:
