Kingpin: Reloaded, the remastered, enhanced version of the classic criminal-themed first-person shooter, makes its long-awaited return to a life of crime on PC via Steam today thanks to developer Slipgate Ironworks and publishers 3D Realms and Interplay. Dish out revenge as a thug hellbent on taking down the Kingpin!
In a lawless gangland ruled by a merciless Kingpin, an unknown ruffian emerges after a brutal pummeling by hitman Nikki Blanco. With no clear reasoning behind why he was targeted, our nameless protagonist readies an arsenal on a blood-filled path of vengeance. Smash heads with a lead pipe, mow down enemies with a Tommy Gun, or use a bazooka to blast away foes.
Kingpin: Reloaded breathes life into a late ‘90s FPS classic, enhanced for modern audiences. Originally developed on the renowned Quake II engine, Kingpin: Reloaded offers 4K resolution, ultrawide monitor support, controller integration, and the ability to toggle between “classic” and “enhanced” modes for a tailored gameplay experience.
Roam the crime-ridden streets of noir art deco-inspired environments. Recruit fellow mobsters to build an unstoppable gang, tackling hub-based missions and upgrading a deadly arsenal. While Kingpin: Reloaded does not shy away from its foul-mouthed roots, those who want to tread on the pacifist side can opt into a “no violence” mode.
“We’re thrilled to bring the enhanced version of a certified cult classic to life,” said Frederik Schreiber, founder of 3D Realms. “This is an excellent opportunity for veterans to revisit the charm of boomer shooters and for newcomers to experience it for the first time.”
Kingpin: Reloaded is available now on PC via Steam for $19.99 with a 25% launch discount during the first week. Also, those who own the original IP on Steam will be able to get Kingpin: Released with a 30% discount. The game features English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, and Simplified Chinese-language support.
