If It's a PC Exclusive with No Multiplayer, You Better Believe Hard Reset's Trailer is All About Gameplay

The Polish super-team building the cyberpunk FPS Hard Reset must think it's 1996 or something. The game is a PC exclusive, has no multiplayer, and although it was announced earlier last month, it's coming out later this year. That's how things used to get done around here.

Flying Wild Hog dropped that gameplay trailer on Friday in an interview with GameSpot, in which the gang explains why they focused solely on singleplayer: "If you want to show some amazing graphics, it's better and easier to develop the game for PCs," FWH's Michal Szustak said. "Also, in the era of movie-like shooters almost "on rails," with player-environment interaction as limited as possible, we wanted to create a game for old-school PC players, raised on all those forgotten Dooms, Quakes, and Painkillers."

Szustak says that multiplayer could have been a check-in-the-box add-on but it would have meant making a game that is inferior to other multiplayer shooters instead of something distinct. It's also a good bet that eschewing online multiplayer and a console release is a big reason it can be delivered so quickly.

Let's be realistic here, unless it's "The Sims", this game isn't going to get the ammount of sales it deserves on the PC platform.

I mean what was the last game, that was PC only that reached 1 million + copies sold?
