Coming from brand new Polish developer Flying Wild Hog is the newest player in the world of PC-exclusive first person shooters, Hard Reset. Set in a dark dystopian future where humans are on their last legs and reduced to defending one last human stronghold, the city of Bezoar, Major Fletcher tries to uncover the truth behind the conflict between humanity's greatest enemies. Hard Reset is set for release this September, and is Flying Wild Hog's debut title. Flying Wild Hog is made up of veterans of the Warsaw development scene comprised of men and women from People Can Fly (Bulletstorm), CD Projekt RED (The Witcher series), and City Interactive (Painkiller). With that background, it's clear to me that Hard Reset will be a hit when it comes out this fall. In the meantime check out the debut trailer and screenshots.
