From the creators of 2013’s Rise of the Triad and Duke Nukem series comes Bombshell, an action role-playing game set to be released on PC and PlayStation 4 formats. Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison is a bomb disposal expert turned galactic mercenary who fights her way across 4 planets to the save the U.S. President from an alien threat. 3D Realms and Interceptor Entertainment are bringing out-of-this-world enemies, a never-before-seen arsenal of devastating weaponry and a variety genre-crossing mechanics to make Bombshell an explosion of new visuals and gameplay.
Interceptor Entertainment first hinted at the plans last month with the launch of a teaser website, NoGumNeeded.com. The website has caused issues with its similarity to a Duke Nukem game and instigated a lawsuit earlier this year. 3D Realms and Interceptor Entertainment had teased a new game in February called Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, describing it as “an isometric action role-playing game for PC and PlayStation 4.”
Bombshell is planned for release in Q1 of 2015 on PC and PS4, with modding tools available from the outset.
