Announcing Heroes Reborn: Gemini and Heroes Reborn: Enigma!
Developed by Phosphor Games and published by Imperative Entertainment and NBC Universal Television, Two Heroes Reborn video games will be released this September to accompany the upcoming 13-episode mini-series on NBC.
Heroes Reborn, airing September 24, takes place five years after the end of the first show when Claire Bennet revealed her powers to the world, making the public aware of super-powered people. From what we’ve learned about Heroes Reborn, apparently the public didn’t respond too positively, so now people with powers are feared and hunted.
The two games act as a prequel to Heroes Reborn and share an overarching story by two writers on the show, overseen by Heroes creator Tim Kring. Key characters and plots will link the two games, so while you can play them separately, Heroes lovers can play both to get a richer experience.
Heroes Reborn: Gemini will be available on consoles and PC and is a first-person action-adventure game where the player controls new character Cassandra, age 20, who uses localized time-travel powers and telekinesis to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. In a gameplay video, we saw her exploring an abandoned facility and come across a locked door. She used her power to peer into the past to read a piece of paper with a code, which she used in the present to unlock the door. We also saw her lift up a piece of debris, travel to the past with it, and then hurl it at an enemy to knock them out.
Heroes Reborn: Enigma is a first-person action-puzzle game for mobile/tablet built on the Unreal 4 engine. It follows Cassandra’s younger sister Dahlia, 14, who uses her powers to escape a secret government facility called The Quarry.
