The trailer arrives ahead of The Talos Principle II’s release tomorrow on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S for $29.99 while a 10% pre-launch discount is still available:

The Talos Principle II’s enthralling adventure spans an astonishing world where biological humanity is extinct, but where humankind continues on through a civilization of robotic beings. After hearing the call of a mysterious presence, this futuristic society must earn answers and its potential discovery of life-changing technology – achievable only through overcoming the puzzles and challenges of an island hosting jaw-dropping landmarks and spectacular vistas.

A thought-provoking journey parsing grand concepts from the value and pitfalls of humanity to the nature of the cosmos, The Talos Principle II continues the series’ excellence in interweaving environmental puzzles with narrative concepts which spur introspection through play. The result is a remarkable outing with ideas and questions bound to linger in memory long after reaching its conclusion.

The Talos Principle II features:

  • A New Generation of Puzzles: Solve a wide array of puzzles with varying difficulty levels, including clever metapuzzles and highly challenging Gold puzzles. Finish the game without solving every puzzle, or pursue the rewards of complete mastery. A variety of new abilities, such as gravity manipulation and mind transference, join the established mechanics of the original The Talos Principle, creating a fresh but familiar experience.
  • A Philosophical Odyssey: Take the next step forward in the story of The Talos Principle in a thought-provoking, character-driven interactive story with multiple endings penned by returning writers Jonas Kyratzes (The Eternal Cylinder, Clash: Artifacts of Chaos) and Tom Jubert (The Swapper, Subnautica), joined by Verena Kyratzes (The Hand of Merlin, Serious Sam 4).
  • Brave New World: Explore more than a dozen all-new environments, from a city on the brink of a paradigm shift to the varied landscapes of a mysterious island that holds the keys to the future. Take a break from puzzle-solving to discover long-buried secrets and strands of forgotten history.
  • The Melodies of Creation: Immerse yourself in the rich, bittersweet world of The Talos Principle with a stunning soundtrack by master composer Damjan Mravunac (Serious Sam, The Talos Principle), with a guest appearance by Chris Christodoulou (Risk of Rain 1 and 2).

Harnessing the power of Unreal Engine 5, 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.
