Superhot: Mind Control Delete Is Out Next Week, And Free For Owners of the Original For a Limited Time

This new standalone looks Super. Hot.

It's time to dive further into the simulation. Superhot: Mind Control Delete is the third Superhot game, with more abilities, enemies, and challenges to ballet around in slow motion, and it's out next week.

While Mind Control Delete has been in Early Access for a while on Steam, this is the full launch of the standalone expansion for Superhot. Much like the original, it uses the world-moves-when-you-do approach, allowing the player to carefully think and construct a path through and around each room. Of course, there are dozens of enemies to shoot, stab, and throws things at in the process.

A bonus for those who already own Superhot: you'll get a copy of Mind Control Delete for free. Those who want in on this deal can also purchase a copy of Superhot and get the free expansion, so long as they do so before July 16. The Superhot team has created a helpful FAQ that should answer any questions about how to redeem this across various platforms.

From Early Access impressions, this seems to be a roguelike take on the Superhot formula. Rather than dying in one hit, you get a three-heart system to meter your survival through the run. This means the introduction of abilities and more challenging enemies, to really test those who have already slo-mo blasted their way through Superhot and Superhot VR.

The first Superhot was an infatuating take on the FPS genre, which left a lasting impression on just about everyone who played it. Seriously, if you beat the first Superhot, you can't see those words without hearing "SUPER. HOT." in your head. The little bits of lore that have been apparently sprinkled through the run-based routine of Mind Control Delete seems like icing on the cake, and enough to get me eager to dive back into the world of illicit computer programs and dangerous bullet ballet.
