Atomic Heart Sets the Mood for the Release Date With a Surprise

With this bizarre trailer, the makers of Atomic Heart prove to us once again that they don't take themselves too seriously.

Shortly before the release date of Atomic Heart, developer Mundfish puts a grin on our faces with a last surprisingly strange trailer.


The highly anticipated FPS game will be out next week on Steam. To be more precise: Atomic Heart’s release date is February 21, 2023. To further fuel the hype around this crazy agent shooter, the developers have served their fans a pretty weird trailer.

The video is a mix of actual film and gameplay that reflects the essence of the game in a pretty ironic way:


This is what the game is about

Atomic Heart is set in the fictional Soviet Union in the 1950s during the ongoing World War II. Technology has now advanced to the development of robots, a world very similar to our reality in its actual goals.

As a P-3 secret agent, you fight your way “through” several mutant creatures while finding out what went wrong. On your mission, you’ll have a nice arsenal of abilities at your disposal. Fight your enemies with special gauntlets, or let them explode with massive weapons. You’ll be able to perform numerous upgrades to all your melee and firearms, making your battles even more effective.

After the release date of Atomic Heart, you too will encounter nasty bloody mutants, as pictured here. The player holds a pistol in his hand.

What are the system requirements of Atomic Heart?

Here we can give the all-clear. The requirements on PC are quite low for Atomic Heart, and even on older gaming PCs, you should be able to play it without any big problems.

According to the developers, the minimum requirements for Atomic Heart are not too hard to meet. A graphics processor with at least 4 GB VRAM, like the AMD Radeon R9 380 or the NVIDIA GTX 960, should suffice. Furthermore, your CPU should have the power of an AMD Ryzen 3 1200 or Intel Core i5-2500, and you should have at least 8 GB RAM.

If you want to enjoy the full graphics splendor, you should have at least 8 GB VRAM available (NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070, AMD RX 6700 XT and up). An Intel i7 7700K or a Ryzen 5 2600X should be installed in the CPU socket. SSDs are recommended, and the game takes up a lot of disk space (90 GB), so better clean up your drive.

You can pre-order the game with a discount on Kinguin (affiliate link) or for regular prices on Steam in either the Standard Edition or Gold Edition.

In Atomic Heart, you'll slaughter mutants, as shown here: The player faces a grotesque creature. A release date is imminent.
