3D Realms and Interceptor Entertainment Drop a Bombshell on PC and PS4

Bombshell

Interceptor Entertainment, the AAA independent studio behind last year’s rad, motion sickness-inducing Rise of the Triad reboot, has revealed its next game project, a cyberpunk action-RPG by the name of Bombshell which is currently scheduled to release Q1 2015 for PC and PlayStation 4.

Bombshell gets its name from its female protagonist, Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison, a former Bomb Disposal Specialist who lost her arm in an explosion. Now she is a mercenary for a private military contractor as well as a motorcycle stunt rider on the side. Oh yeah, and she has a mechanical arm in place of the limb she lost.

According to a video reveal interview with the developer (embedded further down the page), Bombshell has origins back to the early Duke Nukem games and Command & Conquer as a conceptualized character that was never formally introduced. So, she’s basically a female counterpoint to Duke Nukem, who likes heavy metal, motorcycles and kicking ass, but hates bubble gum and blondes.

As an isometric action-RPG, Bombshell will also play nothing like a Duke Nukem game. Bombshell will earn experience points, level up, complete side quests, explore non-linear environments spanning four planets, and upgrade her mechanized arm with more than 10 deadly mods, such as turning it into a detachable, deployable turret or flying drone.
