New Hard Reset: Extended Edition screens show plant life that will soon be dead

NEW_ENVIRONMENTS_Hard_Reset_Extended_Edition__04

Hard Reset came out of nowhere last September and casually brushed aside overwrought, megabudget shooters with its timeless FPS run-and-gun style set against a gritty sci-fi backdrop. No cover, no regenerating health - just strafing and lots and lots of exploding robots. We docked it , however, for its brief campaign, lack of enemy variety, and somewhat limited cyperpunk color palette.

We got our hands on a new screens for Hard Reset: Extended Edition, and it looks like the devs have something to say on all three points: the expansion adds three additional hours, outdoor areas, four new enemy types, and an updated graphics engine. Check out those sunlight god-rays streaming through the windows, and the lush plant life giving off a refreshing green hue to the world. But will a few ferns a few new baddies be able to turn things around? We'll give you the official official rundown when it releases in March.
