Capcom announced a new third person action/adventure game, Remember Me, which was previously named Adrift and teased under that name at last year’s GamesCom.
The game will be set in Paris during the year 2084. The world has now become a place where people’s memories are bought and sold through the black market.
The game will follow the story of female protagonist, Nilin, who is a ‘memory hunter’, until one day her own memory is erased. Nilin will then take herself on a mission to find out why her own memory has been erased and recover her identity.
The extraction of people’s memories is made possible in the game because everyone has brain implants which enable people to delete or exchange memories. This is being controlled by a corporation called Memoreyes and is being challenged by a group of underground activists called the Errorists.
The gameplay video demonstrates a futuristic world where humanity has almost disappeared, as people can now know anything about anyone just by buying their memory. In the video Niln is given a mission to find a member of Memoreyes and remix his memory so that he will kill himself.
Nilin finds her target and hangs onto a wall from the outside watching him through the window. She listens to him having a conversation with his ex-wife before shooting into his mind with a device kept on her arm. By doing this she can see his memory of their chaotic breakup and control it to make him falsely believe her killed her. Once in the real world he now believes that he has killed her and shoots himself in his office, where his ex-wife finds him dead.
Remember Me will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC and is set to be released May next year.
