Rebellion shows off Atomfall for 2025

Rebellion showed off a new game called Atomfall coming for 2025. It’s a post-disaster title, with both human and monstrous enemies.

The company made the announcement at Microsoft’s Xbox showcase today. It is coming to Xbox, PC and Xbox Game Pass. It’s survival action game set in the English countryside.

You can fight with a bow, shooting at people wearing deer antler hats. There’s a robot that seems like it is out of Fallout, and it shoots flamethrowers at soldiers trying to annoy it. There is a lot of greenery in the game.

Oxford, England-based Rebellion is the studio behind Sniper Elite and Zombie Army. The game is based on the real-life events of the 1957 Windscale disaster in the North of England, picking up the story five years after the fire in a fictionalized quarantine zone.

Atomfall will launch in 2025, coming day one to Game Pass. It will also be available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.

Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion, said in a statement, “In Atomfall, we wanted to take the picturesque British countryside and flip it on its head. So, this classic picture postcard setting now serves as an eerie backdrop for a dark mystery that players will have to piece together for themselves. Atomfall is a new story based on a real disaster and told in the speculative fiction style typical of 1950s/60s Britain.”

He added, “So, players can expect to see post-war Britain, Cold War paranoia, and mysterious folk horror blended with elements inspired by classic British sci-fi like Day of the Triffids, Doctor Who, and The Quatermass Experiment. Growing up in Britain, this style of fiction influenced many of our team and really plays to Rebellion’s strengths as a British games studio. We can’t wait for players to uncover the mystery of Atomfall.”

Ben Fisher, associate head of design at Rebellion, said in a statement, “The quarantine zone in Atomfall has been cut off from the outside world for some time. This means that you’re dealing with a bunch of people that have been left to their own devices and it’s safe to say that things have gone a bit ‘Lord of the Flies’ in places.”

He added, “You’ll need to explore this hostile world and navigate bizarre characters, mysticism, cults, and murky government agencies. Your interactions with these are important and will shape your story. Investigate clues to piece together events, be prepared to scavenge to survive, and remember that every encounter is a matter of life and death.”

Atomfall is an original title that incorporates single-player gameplay and story elements in ways Rebellion has never attempted before. The studio will be revealing more about Atomfall soon.

Founded in 1992, Rebellion is one of the world’s most successful independent studios. Its flagship Sniper Elite series is renowned for its authentic stealth and sniping gameplay with more than 20 million players worldwide. The latest game in the franchise, Sniper Elite 5, was released in May 2022 to critical acclaim.

Rebellion now operates across books, comics, TV and film, but at its core it’s still a leading developer and publisher of games.
