by Rainier on Oct. 19, 2020 @ 11:02 a.m. PDT

Based on the first five volumes of the eponymous comic book series, XIII mixes a story-driven adventure, a solid gameplay and a unique cel-shaded artistic direction.

Who are you?
The country is still in shock after President Sheridan’s assassination.
You wake up injured and with amnesia on the shore of an east coast beach. The only clues about your identity are the number XIII tattooed on your collarbone and the key to a locker. Despite the memory loss, you realize not everything has been forgotten as you seem to have amazing reflexes comparable to a well-trained government agent. You will soon be on your way to uncover your past, discovering in the process your role in the murder of the US president and unveiling the most astonishing conspiracy in the country’s history.

Play as «Thirteen», a talented soldier who lost his memory and has been accused of killing the President of the United States. You wake up injured and amnesic on Brighton Beach with the only clue being a small key and a mysterious tattoo « XIII » next to your clavicle.

It’s now your job to search for answers in the 34 levels of the solo campaign, or challenge your friends for brutal multiplayer matches!

Don’t worry, you will find the appropriate weapon arsenal along the way.


This trailer unveils the weapons and gadgets players will be using to achieve their goal.

XIII will have access to a lethal arsenal suiting all situations and play styles. Use brute force thanks to heavy weaponry: 44 Magnum, M16, Bazooka… Remain stealthy by (over)using light weapons such as a 9mm silenced, a throwing knife, a crossbow or even a harpoon gun. XIII will also rely on a wide variety of gadgets such as a grappling hook, a spying microphone or even a lock pick. Very handy to get through all kinds of situations!

  • The remake of the 2003 cult FPS initially released on PC, PS2, Xbox and Nintendo Gamecube.
