A new live-action Atomic Heart trailer has been released by Focus Entertainment and developer Mundfish, featuring a surprise appearance from Supernatural actor Jensen Ackles. The trailer arrives a week before the game’s official release and it has a lot of fun roasting Hogwarts Legacy.
The latest live-action trailer for Atomic Heart, called “The Atomic Way”, features Ackles (best known for Supernatural and The Boys) coming to the aid of a girl dressed in wizard clothing who realises that wands and magic have no effect on the dummy enemy in front of her. Ackles arrives to save the day via The Atomic Way, which basically leads to him violently beating the dummy enemy and surrounding objects with a makeshift weapon.

The trailer clearly takes a jab at Hogwarts Legacy, which released last week and might be competition for Atomic Heart in the February release window. Of course, they’re two completely different types of games with different target demographics, but the jabs are pretty funny nonetheless.
The official description for Atomic Heart provided under the new trailer reads:
“The release of Atomic Heart, the hotly anticipated action-RPG set in the mad utopia of a fictional 1955 USSR, is finally within sight! Today’s video gets you in shape to survive the robot apocalypse, with Jensen Ackles’ accelerated course on blasting robots with deadly efficiency. Spoilers: in a world of technological nightmare, no magic trick will save you. There is only one way: the Atomic Way. So supercharge your AI-augmented punch and prepare for a far-from-bewitching, frenzied intrigue and not-so-enchanting, nerve-racking encounters.”
“You’ll explore the twisted utopia of an alternative 1955 Soviet Union, evolve your playstyle and grow a cutting-edge arsenal by taking on spectacular and unforgiving combat against killer robots, unsightly mutants, and bloodthirsty machines that roam the land of Facility 3826,” the description continues.
Atomic Heart releases on 21 February 2023 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Check out the new trailer below.
