The fruits of Tim Schafer (Creator of the platformer Psychonauts), his production company Double Fine Productions, and Starbreeze Studios‘ labor have finally bore fruit. We’ve known for quite some time that a Psychonauts sequel was in production, but since they gave us a brief look at the alpha footage over a year ago, we haven’t seen a whole lot of gameplay. During this year’s Game Awards, that all changed as they finally released the first trailer for the long-awaited Psychonauts 2!
Psychonauts 2 tells the story of Razputin Aquato, a gifted acrobat with psychic powers, as he fulfills his life-long goal of becoming an international psychic super-spy. In other words, a Psychonaut. Raz joins the Psychonauts at a dangerous time: a mole has infiltrated the organization and is planning to resurrect history’s most cruelly powerful psychic villains. Not knowing who to trust, Raz must dive into the history of the Psychonauts, and that of his own family, to fight the demons of their shared past.
Psychonauts 2 releases in 2019 on PC and consoles!
