For those unfamiliar with the term, “going gold” means that a video game has finally finished development and is awaiting its official release date. In other words, Atomic Heart is in a complete state.
Alongside the announcement, Mundfish also released a new trailer for Atomic Heart, but this one’s a little bit different from the usual video game trailer. While game trailers often showcase cinematics or gameplay, this one’s a lot more stylized, with the video showcasing all the different elements in Atomic Heart’s non-open-world sections connected in a vibrant 3D map. Take a look:
Here’s the video’s English description:
What do you say to an unusual view on the Atomic Heart World? Traditionally we’ve shown screenshots and videos about the locations of the game, but you’ve ever seen before the system of connection between non-open-world sections of the game.
Of course, we won’t really be able to understand what a lot of the structures or shapes refer to until we get to play the game, but the trailer does provide an interesting perspective on the game’s structure and design.
