Atomic Heart is set in an alternate version of 1955. In this alternate history, the Soviets easily won World War II thanks to the development of an incredible new technology known as the polymer, but not before the Nazis unleashed a devastating worldwide plague. This plague increased demand for Soviet robotics, therefore ushering in an era of apparent prosperity. However, when a new artificial intelligence program is launched to enhance the efficiency of the robots, something goes wrong. You play as a Soviet agent and WWII veteran codenamed P-3, who enters the science facility to investigate the resulting calamity.

The game’s first-person combat places an emphasis on shooting and hand-to-hand combat with improvised weapons. You have a special glove that grants powers like telekinesis and electricity, similar to the Plasmids of Bioshock fame. There is also a stealth mechanic and crafting, allowing you to cobble together new weapons and tools from the environment as you crawl through this sinister facility.

  • P-3: P-3, otherwise known as Major Nechayev Sergey Alekseyevich, is the player character and main protagonist of Atomic Heart. He serves as a private agent of Dr. Dmitry Sechenov, and was invited by the scientist to assist in the launch of Kollectiv 2.0. After the launch goes wrong and the facility’s robots start massacring visitors, P-3 is consequently tasked with investigating the cause and setting things right.
  • CHAR-les: Also called Charles, this is the name of the artificial intelligence that resides in P-3’s special polymer glove. This AI companion aids P-3 in using the special powers he gains from the accessory.
  • Dr. Dmitry Sechenov: Sechenov invented the miraculous substance known as Polymer, which in turn revolutionized science and industry in the Soviet Union. He is also the employer of P-3, having enhanced the agent’s body through the use of technological implants, at the cost of some of his memories.
  • The Twins: Left and Right are the names of the two robot bodyguards who protect and assist Dmitry Sechenov. Their design was influenced by ballet dancers, which grants their movements a fluid and powerful grace.

Atomic Heart Cheats FAQ

Is Atomic Heart supposed to be in Russian?

The Russian influence on Atomic Heart is obvious, far beyond the fact that the developers hail from that region. The game does offer multiple language options, however, including English. Mundfish has stated that it considers the Russian version to be the original, meaning it will also have the fewest translation issues. The American accent of the voice actor can also break immersion, somewhat, further incentivizing the original language. That said, it’s been noted that the size of the subtitles is rather small. Unless you’re fluent in Russian, you’ll probably need subtitles, so this could be an obstacle.

Is there a six hour cutscene in Atomic Heart?

Before the game launched, there were rumors that it would contain a lengthy, six-hour cutscene featuring sexually explicit interactions between the player character and the feminine robotic Twins. The developer teased fans on Twitter when asked about it, adding more fuel to the speculation. However, the completed game contains no cutscenes anywhere near that length. Furthermore, while there is some risque dialogue at points, there is no visually explicit content in Atomic Heart.

Does Atomic Heart have NSFW content?

Outside of the aforementioned risque dialogue, Atomic Heart is no more sexualized than the average M-rated game. Like many other games of that ESRB rating, Atomic Heart does feature some rather extreme violence and gore. There are also some light horror elements and disturbing material that might unsettle some players. That’s about the extent of the NSFW content featured in the title, however. When compared to something like Doom or Call of Duty, Atomic Heart isn’t especially daring.
