Pathologic 2 gets a gameplay overview trailer ahead of next week’s release
The grim adventure Pathologic 2 is coming out next week, and tinyBuild has released a new trailer showing off its gameplay chops. Have a look here.
Pathologic 2 is creeping towards its 23rd May release date, but publisher tinyBuild wants to make sure you know what you’re getting into first. There’s a new ‘gameplay overview’ trailer for the game that’s out now, and it shows off all the stuff that you actually do in the game.
Here it is below:
Pathologic 2 is being developed by veteran Russian studio Ice-Pick Lodge, who are probably best known for making the experimental classic The Void a decade ago. They also developed the original Pathologic back in 2005.
Although this game is presented as a sequel to the older Pathologic, there is no story continuity between the two games. In fact, Pathologic 2 is a ‘reimagining’ of the original game’s concept.
Here’s what it’s about:
Pathologic 2 is a narrative-driven dramatic thriller about fighting a deadly outbreak in a secluded rural town. The town is dying. Face the realities of a collapsing society as you make difficult choices in seemingly lose-lose situations. The plague isn’t just a disease. You can’t save everyone.
The plague is devouring the town. The chief local healer is dead, and you are now to take his place. You’ll have to look for unexpected allies. The local kids are hiding something. Try playing by their rules.
You only have 12 days.
