Atomic Heart is one of the most anticipated games releasing this year and leading into its release this February, developer Mundfish is making the rounds in interviews to promote the anticipated title. Some new information has surfaced as a result of these interviews, including Mundfish having no plans to add multiplayer add-ons to the game. However, DLC will aim to expand the open-world regions.
In an interview with WCCFTech, Atomic Heart game director and Mundfish’ founder Robert Bagrantuni explained that the game will be a single-player experience and that there aren’t any plans to add multiplayer in the future, at least not at this time. Furthermore, four post-launch content packs will expand open-world territories and introduce new areas for players to explore, in addition to numerous activities and enemies.
Bagrantuni talked about keeping Atomic Heart a single-player adventure and letting the DLCs expand that experience instead of adding any multiplayer elements to the game:
“The entire Atomic Heart experience will be single-player, focusing on the story and player experience. No multiplayer add-ons are planned at this time. The DLCs are intended to greatly expand the player experience with new territories, quests, puzzles, enemies, as well as character and world stories. We plan to significantly expand both the open-world territories, as well as new complexes and labs – where the player will learn more about the Atomic Heart world and will need to complete new challenges.”
Atomic Heart was originally planned to launch in late 2022 before it was pushed to early 2023 in order to give the developer more time to polish the game. It’s currently pinned to release on 21 February 2023 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Check out the recent exclusive GeForce RTX gameplay reveal below.
