Blood Remastered is a refreshed version of the classic first person shooter, which is one of the most important titles in the history of the genre. The production, created by Monolith Productions studio, was originally released in 1997, quickly awaiting two extensions (both included in the refreshed version), as well as a continuation released a year later. The preparation of the remaster is the responsibility of the Nightdive Studios team, known for their remakes of System Shock, Forsaken and Turok.
Blood Remastered takes place at the beginning of the last century. We play the role of an undead revolver named Caleb, who is looking for a way to take revenge on the worship of Chernobog after he is betrayed and killed by his followers. Individual fragments of the campaign take place in different parts of the world in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.
Blood Remastered uses the FPS mid- and late 1990's gameplay model. Players navigate through vast boards in search of secrets and keys that open the way to the next level. Individual locations are full of various hidden surprises and weapons, including various pop-cultural references.
Like in Duke Nukem 3D, players cannot look up or down while playing. Shooting towards opponents does not require us to aim accurately. It is enough that the enemies are within reach of our weapons and sight. The limited movement of the camera is partly compensated by the fact that Caleb can crouch, which turns out to be useful when exploring and avoiding threats. During the game we use firearms, as well as occult magic and tools. We fight in a bloody way against people as well as against various demonic monsters.
In addition to the single player campaign, Blood Remastered also features a multiplayer mode with many classic gameplay variants such as deathmatch.
Blood Remastered preserves all the elements of the original audiovisual setting, including its layout, combining three-dimensional locations with two-dimensional sprites of the characters. However, the production offers support for standard screen resolutions (including 4K). The title has been adapted to work with the latest operating systems, providing support for DirectX and Vulcan libraries, as well as modern audio standards. The technical side of the multi-person mode was also completely rebuilt.
