The Talos Principle is one of the more memorable games of the past for me. Today, Croteam and Devolver Digital have announced The Talos Principle II, the long-awaited sequel to 2014’s smash hit philosophical puzzler. Coming to PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S in 2023, The Talos Principle II greatly expands on the beloved original with more mind-bending puzzles to solve, new puzzle mechanics, a richer storyline, more secrets to uncover, and the biggest, weirdest world Croteam has ever built.
Set in a distant future where humankind has long been extinct, human culture lives on through interminable robots made in our image. Embarking on a quest to investigate a mysterious megastructure, players will be confronted with questions about the nature of the cosmos, faith versus reason and the fear of repeating humankind’s mistakes.
Familiar puzzles will return in The Talos Principle II, accompanied by unique new gameplay including mind transference and gravity manipulation. There’s also a deep character-driven story with multiple endings to lose yourself in, and a series of strange, stunningly beautiful environments to explore—including a city on the brink of a paradigm shift and an island holding the keys to the future.
The Talos Principle II is the most ambitious, thought-provoking game Croteam has made yet, and we will be able to play it later this year. You can visit talosprinciple.com for more information and wishlist the game on Steam.
