2020 might be the best year in the history of gaming, despite the ongoing pandemic that’s causing so much sorrow and restrictions across the world. Around Christmas, both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will arrive to the stores, and there are already plenty of exciting games confirmed for the next-generation consoles.
Besides highly-rated titles like FIFA 21, Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, or GTA 5, a less-important title is confirmed for both PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Recompile confirmed by the trailer
Feel free to feast your eyes upon the trailer, as it presents plenty of exciting footage for the game:
Here’s how the official Steam page for Recompile describes the game:
“Take control of a semi-sapient program and escape deletion in this atmospheric, Metroidvania-inspired hacking adventure. Set in the sprawling 3D world of the Mainframe, Recompile features intense combat, tight platforming, environmental hacking and a unique branching narrative.”
The description further says:
“Witness the birth of sapient AI in this sprawling atmospheric hacking adventure. Combining traditional Metroidvania mechanics with a dynamic branching narrative system, Recompile challenges players to explore, fight, hack and survive. Discover the many secrets beneath the ancient digital landscape, and prepare for system-wide reconfiguration.”
As for the system requirements, we can expect the game to be running on even low-end computers, even though there’s no official confirmation for that. The graphics don’t seem to require powerful hardware. What we know for sure is that surprisingly enough, Recompile will be running on the good old Windows 7. The operating system has officially been abandoned by Microsoft in January, which obviously means no more updates nor technical assistance.
However, plenty of games are still running on Windows 7, as people are still clinging to the operating system. And it’s understandable, as Windows 10 has some obvious flaws.
