Xbox's Gamescom livestream has delivered a fresh look at the much-anticipated Atomic Heart, from developer Mundfish. We've not seen any new gameplay on this one in a short while, but it's back, and it's back with a bang!

As the video title gives away, this trailer focuses on gameplay & combat above all, but we do get another glimpse at its crazy take on 1950's alternate history Russia, which to us is its most interesting aspect.

Here's the basic setup:

"A system failure at Soviet Facility № 3826 leads machinery to rebel against the people. You are Major P-3, Private Agent, and your task is to minimize the consequences of this 'systems failure' and prevent the leakage of classified information.

To succeed, you'll have to do your homework and study every deadly foe to avoid becoming their next victim, for secret experiments have led to the emergence of terrifying mutants, implacable machines, and bloodthirsty creatures."
