Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed Trailer Reveals August 30 Launch

Destroy All Humans! 2 is making a return with an all-new remake from THQ Nordic and Black Forest Games. The two shared a brand-new trailer which just revealed that we can expect it to launch on August 30.

The series was widely popular in the '00s, but publisher THQ and developer Pandemic ultimately shut down. So after three games, Destroy All Humans got trapped in limbo—16 years later, the second game is back. The sequel that's being remade pokes fun at the Cold War era of the '60s and '70s, so it's chock-full of pop culture references.

Currently, the game is set to launch on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S, making it a current-gen exclusive, so if you're on Switch or older hardware, you won't be able to revisit the apocalyptic world of destruction. Still, you can check out what to expect in the trailer embedded below.

The story revolves around you—an alien—taking "revenge on the KGB for blowing up your mothership". To make this feasible, you team up with the allies of Earth who you "came to enslave." It pokes fun at hippy culture, the swinging '60s, and lets you "grind" up humans into DNA cocktails. There's even two-player split-screen co-op if you want to rope some friends into the carnage.

The remake builds the game from the ground up in Unreal Engine 4 with the same developers behind Destroy All Humans! (2020)—that means that Crypto skins from the first game are being added, while new features are being implemented like being able to alter the paint job on your flying saucer.

For more context, Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed is skipping last-gen so that it can boast a "bigger, better world". This means we can expect as much as five times the number of objects in levels to make the environments less empty and barren, giving you more to chew on when you unleash total mayhem. We can also expect updates to the map's layout and a few other key tweaks from the original, all thanks to current gen's updated technology.
