Ahead of launch, we've got the Atomic Heart review embargo details for you now.

The review embargo for Atomic Heart is set for Monday, February 20th at 5:00 a.m. PST. Head over to the Atomic Heart page for all the reviews when it drops!

Previews for Atomic Heart have been mixeed:

IGN - "My short time with Atomic Heart definitely left me with my curiosity piqued and my pulse racing, and if it can sustain its intrigue and ingenuity for the full length of its journey it could be something very special indeed."

Digital Trends - "Even if it doesn’t wind up landing every punch, I imagine that its constant surprises will be enough to keep me engrossed in its promising sci-fi mystery. I’ll take some oddball creative swings from a fresh studio over a templatized genre piece any time."

PCGamer - "Atomic Heart's narrative didn't hook me, its humour fell flat, and its gameplay—for all the brilliant and beautiful influences it wears on its sleeve—never offered the flexibility I really want from an immersive sim."

Polygon - "It will probably do well on Game Pass, where it’s included from day one, if the audience can get comfortable with its Russian roots — and if Mundfish can get it in shape."

Atomic Heart releases at 3 p.m. PST / 6 p.m. EST on February 20th, 2023 for PC, Play Station 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
