"The Thing," Video-game Has a Remastered Edition Coming This Year

"The Thing," is an amazing movie (directed by John Carpenter) and the sequel-ish game, "The Thing," was immense fun when I played it on the original Xbox over two decades ago (I know, I 'm old). The game followed a team dispatched to find out just what happened to the Antarctic research base from the flick, but of course things go horribly awry due to the titular alien that can perfectly imitate humans. The company that remade, "System Shock," known as Nightdive is giving us a remaster of, "The Thing," with the difference between remake and remaster being this updates a lot of stuff...but isn't a total retooling.

With improvements to textures, character models, the environment, and so forth a lot of the original fun will remain where you get to be suspicious of your team and if they are, in fact, human--but the game will look a lot prettier. This new iteration of, "The Thing," will be released for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC later this year. I'm excited to revisit the game with some snazzy updates!
