John Carpenter's Toxic Commando

In the realm of horror, there exists a legendary figure, none other than John Carpenter, who not only possesses a mastery of the macabre but also embraces his inner nerd. This esteemed filmmaker, known for his groundbreaking contributions to the horror genre with classics like Halloween and The Thing, is now venturing into the world of gaming with a thrilling project called John Carpenter’s Toxic Commando.

From the tantalizing glimpses offered in a brief trailer, it becomes apparent that players will find themselves immersed in a heart-pounding first-person shooter experience, pitted against relentless hordes of ravenous zombies. What sets this game apart is the ingenious utilization of an arsenal of cars as formidable weapons, showcased prominently in the trailer as a means to fend off the encroaching enemies.

While John Carpenter’s reputation as a horror virtuoso precedes him, it’s worth noting that he is also an ardent gaming enthusiast. In a recent interview with AV Club, Carpenter openly confessed his addiction to Fallout 76, expressed his love for the exhilarating Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and hailed Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as “pretty damn good.” With such passion for the medium, it is an exciting prospect to envision Carpenter infusing his favorite gaming elements into Toxic Commando, thereby crafting an immersive experience that blends the best of both worlds.

The much-anticipated arrival of John Carpenter’s Toxic Commando is slated for the year 2024, primed to captivate gamers on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC platforms. Spearheading its development are Saber Interactive and Focus Entertainment, who undoubtedly recognize the immense responsibility of bringing Carpenter’s visionary ideas to life within the gaming landscape. As the launch draws nearer, anticipation builds, with fans eagerly awaiting the fusion of Carpenter’s horror prowess and gaming expertise, ultimately culminating in a spine-chilling and adrenaline-pumping adventure unlike any other.
