Bombshell, the new isometric action RPG from 3D Realms and developer Interceptor, has gone gold, meaning development on the project is finished. It has also been confirmed (via Destructoid) that the game will launch for PC on January 29, priced at $35. Console versions of the game are coming sometime later.
$35 gets you the Bombshell standard edition. A $40 digital deluxe edition will also be available, featuring the soundtrack, artbook, access to the beta for a Bombshell FPS prequel, and more.
Originally scheduled to launch in 2015, Bombshell was delayed back in November because the game still had too many bugs.
“Our first instinct was to just get this puppy out-the-door, and that we could fix the remaining issues with a quick patch after launch. But within ten seconds we realized that’s no way to treat paying fans of our games,” the developer said at the time.
Bombshell is also coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Those versions, developed by Abstraction Games, are slated to arrive sometime in 2016.
Here’s the plot overview for Bombshell, which is every bit as over-the-top as you might think/hope.
“Once a respected bomb technician in the Global Defense Force, Shelly Harrison donned the codename Bombshell after she failed to disarm an alien explosive that led to the loss of her entire squad and her right arm. Deemed responsible for the resulting casualties in what became known as ‘The Washington Incident’, Shelly was stripped of her rank but later approached by a private military contractor promising her a chance at redemption. Harnessing the alien technology responsible for the dramatic turn in her life, Shelly became Bombshell–a tough-as-nails mercenary-for-hire touting a powerful bionic arm and a fierce attitude.”
