Game News Summer Game Fest 2022: a major French license is making a totally unexpected return!
So that, for a surprise, is a nice one. The Summer Game Fest has lifted the veil on a brand new game called… Flashback 2. And yes, it is indeed the comeback of the Flashback franchise, something that no one really expected… except those who were really on the lookout.
30 years later
In August 2021, we learned with great surprise the existence of Flashback 2, the sequel to a cult game, Flashback, originally released in 1992. Suffice to say that no one expected it and since then the game has looked so early in the dark. But it was without counting on the Summer Game Fest which allowed the project to truly show itself and to make everyone understand that, yes, its development is now well advanced.
Note in passing that it is Microids who is in charge of this brand new game and that for the occasion, it is Paul Cuisse who is piloting the site. This is none other than a veteran industry developer, behind the first Flashback, but also Shaq Fu or Time Commando.
Conrad B. Hart back
Flashback 2 will once again put us in the shoes of Conrad B. Hart, always immersed in the heart of a futuristic universe with a particular artistic direction. For oncethe software will take the form of an action-platform game with a resolutely old-school aspect (but wanted), obviously in homage to its predecessor.
We therefore let you enjoy this very first trailer, therefore broadcast with great fanfare during the Summer Game Show 2022. Finally, know that Flashback 2 is expected on PC via Steam, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The total.
About the Summer Game Fest
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcements of video games to come this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now unmissable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured stunning images from Elden Ring; so inevitably, the third iteration raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The Summer Game Fest is this Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m. The show will once again be followed by a Day of the Devs session devoted to the independent scene.
How to follow the Summer Game Fest 2022?
On JV, we will react live to announcements from the LeStream channel alongside Maxildan and Aymeric Lallée in particular. The show will also be directly visible as a teaser on JV’s homepage.
