Deadfall Adventures, the first-person adventure game for Xbox 360 and PC from Polish developer The Farm 51, is putting on the boots for another adventure, this time on PS3. Deadfall Adventures: Heart of Atlantis is an expanded and revamped re-release of The Farm 51's 2013 adventure/FPS hybrid, featuring new locations, new fights, reworked graphics and more.

If you're unfamiliar, Deadfall Adventures takes its inspiration from the likes of Indiana Jones, who in turn takes inspiration from pulp serials like Doc Savage, which in turn can trace their pedigree to the character Allan Quatermain. That may sound like a confusing string of follow the leader, but it's actually more like coming full-circle; the hero in Deadfall Adventures is James Lee Quatermain, great grandson to the extraordinary gentleman, Allan.

Deadfall Adventures: Heart of Atlantis is expected to fight off Nazis and the supernatural sometime this summer.
