Destroy All Humans! remaster makes contact this summer



Destroy All Humans! release date
THQ Nordic

Destroy All Humans! will exit cryosleep for a current-gen release this July.

In the years since Nordic Games rebranded as THQ Nordic, it has relentlessly re-released old THQ games.

In early 2019, we got a Switch remaster of Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy. Last spring, Saints Row: The Third came to Switch, and Saints Row 4 followed suit in 2020. In June, we’ll get Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom: Rehydrated. And, as of today, we have a release date for Destroy All Humans!


On July 28, the cult classic, originally released on PlayStation 2 and Xbox will launch on their current-gen equivalents, plus PC. Just like in 2005, Destroy All Humans! will skip Nintendo’s console (though an eventual Switch port seems inevitable).

Destroy All Humans! flips the typical alien invasion story on its oversized head. Rather than repelling the invading scourge, you take on the role of an evil alien. As Crypto-137 you are intent on terrorizing the denizens of 1950s Earth in humorous, physics-driven ways.

There are multiple pre-order editions with varying amounts of keychains, figurines and in-game skins if you’re into that kind of thing. Shoutout to merch!

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
