Harvest their DNA and bring down the US government in the faithful remake of the legendary alien invasion action-adventure. Annihilate puny humans using an assortment of alien weaponry and psychic abilities. Reduce their cities to rubble with your flying Saucer! One giant step on mankind!

After Amazon leaked the game — the retailer also leaked Darksiders Genesis a few days ago — IGN posted a trailer for Destroy All Humans! The video confirms that the game is coming to consoles in 2020. You can view it below.
