If you purchased Superhot, you’ll be one of the 2 million+ getting a free copy of Mind Control Delete.
If you were a fan of the puzzling shooter (can you call it that?) from 2016, Superhot, and maybe even the VR version, you’ll be pleased to know that the next entry in the series, Superhot: Mind Control Delete is launching this month on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Superhot: Mind Control Delete has been in an Early Access state for several years now and was originally planned to launch as a free expansion. However, the introduction of so many new features has seen it become its own standalone title with no need to own the original game.
The new installment will find players trawling through the system once again, battling enemies and making use of new mechanics, new weapons, new enemies, and is said to be 4x larger than the original. Players also go through levels uncovering mysteries, cores, and hacks.
Developer SUPERHOT Team has clarified that those who own Superhot will be getting Superhot: Mind Control Delete for free. That means that over 2 million copies of the game are being given away simply because the developer is grateful for its community. Players will only be eligible for a free copy of Mind Control Delete providing they purchased the original, so getting Superhot from giveaways and such does not count.
PC users will have the game automatically added to their Steam account, GOG account, or Epic Games Store account. PS4 users will also find the game automatically added to their library within a few days after launch. Xbox players will get a token in the form of an official Xbox message, so keep eyes on your inbox. Also, if you purchased the game on the Nintendo Switch, if you provide proof of purchase to the SUPERHOT Team, they’ll send you a free-DRM PC version of Mind Control Delete. More information is provided in the official FAQ.
Superhot: Mind Control Delete will be launching on July 16 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. It will also be heading to the Nintendo Switch at some point. The FAQ also states, “We plan to port to more platforms,” which could hint at the arrival on the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
I was already able to review the game as well, and you can find out my thoughts here.
