Users on Steam should check out the latest Next Fest which is available until the 16th of October. It’s a chance to try some demos of various upcoming games. Previous demos I tried thanks to this event include the System Shock remake and Planet of Lana. One game part of this as we see reported by Eurogamer is The Talos Principal 2. I’m a huge fan of puzzle games and have finished the original Talos Principal and the DLC it’s a game that will make you think and getting optional trophies and achievements will push you harder.
With The Talos Principal 2, I expect more of the same. This release will be on PC and available on Steam as well as Epic. We also know it’s due on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. However, how is the game holding? So let’s take a look at the demo on Steam and see for ourselves.
The Talos Principal 2 – What We Get
Visually this game looks much more detailed and it seems this is down to the use of Unreal Engine 5. The gameplay is smooth and fans of the game will know what to expect. For those new the premise is simple. You have to unlock gates by rearranging the pieces you collect from various puzzles. An example is shown in the video below. You use block jammers or other devices to help aid your progress. The controls are fairly simple and things like jumping and climbing higher up may depend on the puzzle you doing. Being a fan of the first game I found this really easy to pick up and play just like the original.
This game won’t be for all and I recommend trying the demo out if it catches your eye. For fans, you are no doubt sure to enjoy. Also if you preorder now you get a 10% discount ahead of its 2nd of November launch. It’s not a full-price release as when the discount ends it will be priced at around £24.99 / $29. 99. Though in the UK the full price on the Epic Store is £23.79.
