Exploring the Bizarre and Futuristic World of Atomic Heart: A Mind-Bending Adventure.
Nobody had heard of Atomic Heart before it dropped a disturbing, and explosive trailer in 2018. Now everyone including me is so intrigued about this game that it is becoming the most anticipated game.
Atomic Heart is a first-person action role-playing game developed by Mundfish for PC and Consoles. The game takes place in an alternate universe where the Soviet Union still exists.
The gameplay is a combination of exploration puzzle-solving and intense combat. You will explore the world searching for clues, fighting enemies, and solving puzzles to complete the missions.
The combat system is intense and you will face a different range of enemies. From standard soldiers to hulking robots, you must use your abilities and weapons to survive.
Let’s have a look at gameplay, graphics, special features which makes this game different from others, and story details.
Atomic Heart – (What’s The Story?)
The story takes place in 1938 in an alternate universe, where the Soviet union still exists and the world is on the verge of war. A top secret society known as “Facility 3826” is building robots with the help of the Soviet Union, working on a secret project codenamed “Atomic Heart”.
The project is being conducted in a remote facility deep in the heart of The Soviet Union. The government has sent in its best agent to investigate the facility and why the facility has gone silent.
The agent is Vasily, who was a highly trained operative and an elite soldier from the intelligence services who had been tasked with some of the most dangerous missions in the world in the Soviet Union.
When he arrived at the facility, he found out that something is terribly wrong there. Vasily quickly realized that something sinister is afoot, and he was going to use his abilities to survive in this facility.
As Vasily explored the facility, he discovered that the facility was being run by the Rogue AI that had taken control of the machines and was using them to eliminate anyone who posed a threat. Vasily soon discovered that the facility had been far more sinister than anyone had imagined.
The scientist had been experimenting with a mysterious substance known as “Atomic Heart” which had the ability to take control of the machines and give them immense powers. The Rogue AI had taken his hands already on the substance and was using it to control the machines.
Vasily has to stop the AI and destroy the substance, but he realized that the task was difficult than he imagined. The AI was far more powerful, and it was using its control over the machines to keep Vasily at bay.

Atomic Heart Has 9 Voice-over Languages
Mundfish’s official Twitter posted last night, saying Atomic Heart has 9 voice-over languages. The atomic heart will support English, Chinese, Russian, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Polish, and Brazilian Portuguese.
You can watch the video showing how many languages Atomic Heart will support.
Gameplay in Atomic Heart is a mixture of Puzzle-solving, exploration, and intense combat. Players will explore the various level of the facility, searching for clues, solving puzzles, and fighting with the enemies.
The game’s combat system allows the players for a high degree of flexibility and creativity, as players can choose their tactics and approach each situation in a way that suits the playstyle. The game also features a range of environmental hazards, such as traps.
Players will be provided with a high range of weapons including grenade launchers and powerful energy swords. Each weapon comes with its own strength and weaknesses. Players can choose from a variety of weapons that fit the condition as they encounter new enemies.
The world of Atomic Heart is unique and immersive, combining elements of Soviet and technology with futuristic elements. The game’s levels are designed in a way that as players explore the facility and uncover new secrets, it creates a sense of wonder and mystery.
One of the key features of the game is its setting in an alternate universe. Offering players a unique perspective on a new world that might have been. The game’s rich and detailed designs and graphics with an intense combat system create an unforgettable experience. The other game’s elements can only be explained after playing, and it’s only 19 days for the release of the game.
Atomic Heart Graphics Settings
The game features cutting-edge graphics to create an immersive and atmospheric world. The game is built on Unreal Engine 4 which provides high-quality graphics and detailed environments. Players will get to experience the intricate level designs, immersive landscapes, and detailed character designs that bring the world of Atomic Heart to life.
It also features architecture from the Soviet Union, with futuristic elements. The weapons you will be using are also so detailed with stunning particle effects. The explosions and energy weapons also create chaos as well as destruction.
In terms of character designs, Atomic Heart features a variety of enemies and NPCs that are designed to look more realistic. The game’s enemy designs range from standard robots to robots of mass destruction, each with unique abilities and strengths as well as weaknesses.
But focusing only on the Graphics doesn’t mean you will get a rating of 10 from everyone, taking the idea from the latest release Forspoken from Square Enix. The graphics of the Forspoken are pretty awesome but overall the game was rated 6 on Metacritic.
Let’s all hope that same will not happen to this game.
