One of Battlefield developer DICE’s earliest games, Hardcore, is getting released, thanks to Strictly Limited Games.

Hardcore was originally developed in 1994 for the Sega Genesis before publisher Psygnosis canned it. The real tragedy was that the game was pretty much finished.

Thankfully, SLG is stepping in like Indiana Jones to rescue the game and put it in a museum… er, I mean, on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.

The game now has a new trailer, and it still looks like it holds up. The graphics still look good, and considering we’re seeing a resurgence of high-quality, retro-style sidescrollers from new developers, this is probably the perfect time to bring newer gamers to school and give them a history lesson. A hardcore history lesson. (Where my Dan Carlin fans at?)

Hardcore (which, for some reason, Strictly Limited still considers a working title, even if it’s perfectly simple) is launching sometime in 2019 with DICE’s full support and approval.
