10 Minutes of Psychonauts 2 New Gameplay Released
Old powers and antagonist return, but there is new evil, too
Game Informer released a 10-minute long video with new Psychonauts 2 gameplay that was shown as a hands-off demo behind closed doors at E3 2019.
You can watch it below:
The demo shows the beginning of the game, which takes place after the end of VR-prequel Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin. Main character Raz now works for Psychonauts and tries to fit into the role of an employee.
Almost immediately he gets caught up in another adventure — turns out the office is just an illusion and the video then shows chase with Dr. Caligosto Loboto, the antagonist of the first game. The demo ends with a reveal of the new big bad named Maligula.
There is also a slice of gameplay that shows various platforming sequences and combat system. No new abilities were shown, but you still can use various combinations of telekinesis, pyrokinesis, and levitation.
Psychonauts 2 is set to release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2020. Following the Starbreeze Studios departure as a game publisher, it was revealed at E3 2019 that Psychonauts 2 will be now published by Microsoft, and Double Fine Production has joined Xbox Game Studios.
