Hard Reset is a PC-exclusive FPS from The Flying Wild Hog, a Polish developer that is made up from members of the team behind Painkiller (People Can Fly), and former developers from CD Projekt Red and City Interactive.
In development since April 2009, the game features a cyberpunk plot. It draws inspiration from William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, and Philip K. Dick (especially Blade Runner in story). In gameplay, Serious Sam is the main inspiration; explosive barrels and large hordes of enemies will be prominent within the game. There is no multiplayer.

You can see that up-to 1920x1200 we have some CPU limitation in Crossfire. It makes sense as this is a not too heavy on the GPU DX9 title. At 2560x1600 you can see the real scaling kick in -- HARD.
Very few other results for now, we recently inserted this benchmark. Probably we should have moved to 2560x1600 here as it shows a nearly doubled framerate. Regardless, give the beasts enough CPU horsepower and they will kill.
