Back in October, Overhaul Games released the HD version of MDK 2 that featured 10 levels, 20 enemies, brand new HD graphics, enhanced audio and tweaked gameplay. The game was available exclusively via BeamDog’s website and as you’d expect, a lot of PC gamers cried out for a Steam release. Fast forward a couple of months and here we are today with some good news for all of you who wanted to buy this remake via Valve’s distribution service.
According to Steam, MDK 2 HD will be releasing on July 30th. Although there is no price yet for the Steam release, we expect it to be similar to the one of BeamDog’s (around $14.99).
Kurt Hectic in his snazzy suit with ribbon chute is back to save the universe. This time he is teamed with the genius Dr. Hawkins and the 6-legged gun-toting robotic dog, Max. Together they must out-sneak, out-blast and out-think their enemies as they attempt to reclaim the Earth from a vile alien menace.
All three characters – Kurt, Doctor Hawkins and Max are playable, each has his own levels, powers and items and a completely different gameplay focus. Kurt is about stealth and sniping, the Doctor has a few direct attacks but also has the ability to create items and effects out of simple household objects, while Max is a cigar smoking, quad gun toting demolition squad of a dog.
