PowerSlave: Exhumed Confirmed For February 10th

The port will be launching on the Switch as well as Xbox, PlayStation and PC.

It seems the next in line for Nightdive Studios‘ rapid series of modern remasters is finally due to launch next month on February 10th. Nightdive Studios themselves recently announced the release date. PowerSlave Exhumed is a KEX Engine remastering of the original PowerSlave. The port seems to be a combination of both the original PlayStation and Sega Saturn versions.

The description for the game reads as follows:

“PowerSlave: Exhumed is a KEX Engine port of the classic console game

Destination: The ancient Egyptian city of Karnak. Alien forces possessing horrifying powers have sealed off the once thriving community from all outside contact. As a covert operations specialist, you have been trained for all forms of contingencies. Nothing can prepare you, however, for the nightmare you are about to enter…


First Person Viewpoint Action
20 Plus Levels of Non-stop gameplay through an ancient Egyptian city and the tomb of the Pharaoh Ramses
Real time fully 3D rendered gameplay allows you to move between floors within a single level
Cross bridges and swim through underwater grottos
With just a machete to start, search for 6 other weapons including hand grenades, a flame thrower, an M-60 machine gun, and a magical cobra staff.
Dynamic lighting creates stunning visual effects.”

Nightdive Studios have been on a roll lately, remastering many beloved titles such as Turok, Shadow Man, System Shock and making them much more accessible for a modern audience. The studio is also hard at work on a full-on remake of the original System Shock. While many would seemingly dismiss these remasters as simple facelifts, Nightdive remasters particularly stand out from their competition. 

Going far beyond a mere facelift, these remasters not only make the games look significantly better than they ever did, but they also significantly polish the gameplay and controls. The studio adds modern bells and whistles to many antiquated titles. They even go as far as to add in cut content from the original game, as was the case of the phenomenal Shadow Man Remaster
