Is that… is that Rammstein?
Destroy All Humans! is a cute, knockabout action game from 2005. In it, you play as an alien race, and you’ll invade the Earth, destroy
all some humans, and abduct cows. It’s what aliens do, right?
The tone is tongue in cheek, the dialogue is (mostly) amusing, and it’s set in a sort of Fallout-esque alternate 1950s before the bomb drops. That means big cars with whitewall tyres, milkshakes and malts, rock and roll and B-movies, and a massive dose of wholesome America vs. evil Communism.
It makes perfect sense, then, that the remaster of Destroy All Humans! is being advertised by, erm, Rammstein? Sorry, what?
Yes, that Rammstein. The German Neue Deutsche Härte/industrial metal band whose previous best-known foray into soundtrack work was their song Du Hast, in the dance club scene from The Matrix? That one.
It’s unusual, we’ll call it – out of politeness – but it kind of works.
We don’t have much more information on Destroy All Humans! than is presented in the trailer. It will be coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and is expected to release in 2020 to celebrate the original game’s 15th anniversary.
