It’s just over a month before Raz gets back to his old ways and the developers of Double Fine Productions They have published a thriller from the history of Psychonauts 2 where we anticipate some of the levels, characters and crazy situations that we will live in the comical platform adventure that will arrive next August 25 on PC, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The video inserted on this paragraph introduces us to the adventure villain, Maligula, and some of the environments that we will explore as Raz during his first day on the job as Psychonaut: phases that have a cartoon style, others that take us to a very abstract world, others in deformed cities, and without leaving aside the one that makes us travel what seems to be a grotesque setting inspired by a dental clinic. The trailer also reviews some final bosses and characters like the Raz family.
On the other hand, in Game Informer they have published an extensive gameplay almost 18 minutes. Ah they say that the game starts with a content notice that informs about the treatment of mental health issues. They point out that precision on platforms has improved a lot compared to the first Psychonauts, but still has some precision issues.
Only Xbox Series versions will have HDR
