3D Realms Action RPG Bombshell Returns With a Bang

It’s been a long time, Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison. We meet again at last.

In case you forgot–the game was announced back in May of last year and quickly disappeared from thought–Bombshell is a cyberpunk action RPG from the retro-sexy super team of 3D Realms and Interceptor Entertainment, whose credits include hits like Rise of the Triad, Duke Nukem, and Max Payne. The punk rock action heroine with a robotic arm is actually rooted back to the early Duke Nukem games as a conceptualized character that never made an in-game appearance. Now it is Bombshell’s time to shine.

Bombshell will be out on PC and consoles “when it’s done.” Right now “when it’s done” is planned to be sometime this calendar year. After the Duke Nukem Forever debacle, it may be best to keep cautious expectations for a timely release.

The game has returned to the scene with a gameplay trailer and fresh set of screenshots, which show a much more polished representation of the experience than the fairly rough around the edges early showing. All of the metallic surfaces should be a dead giveaway that the game is a product of the Unreal Engine.
