Following an almost two-year period of exclusivity on the Nintendo Switch, Rising Star Games and Toybox Inc have released the sequel to their 2010 cult-classic narrative-driven survival horror game Deadly Premonition, Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise onto the PC as of right now. Deadly Premonition 2 once again follows the tale of Agent York and other agents, and hurtles players into a new mystery. The game is purchasable exclusively via the Steam digital distribution platform priced at $39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99. Those who opt to buy the game early will be able to take advantage of a 30% launch discount. You will need a controller to play the game, so if you don’t have a PC compatible one, you may be in for several times that price.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is both a sequel and prequel to the original game, following Agent Davis and Agent Jones as they begin a new investigation into the Le Carré serial murders. Set in present-day Boston, the game’s unique storytelling will see you travel back in time to the town of Le Carré via the memories of a former FBI agent. These flashbacks will allow you to step into the shoes of Special Agent York to unravel an intriguing and disturbing mystery.
Begin your investigation by visiting a retired investigator shrouded in mystery. As you question this legendary figure and break through the man’s mental walls, you will find yourself drawn into a world that hides a disturbing darkness. According to Rising Star Games, players should expect “a thrilling tale full of twists and turns, a surreal atmosphere and plenty of the kinds of odd-ball characters that helped make the Deadly Premonition series famous and won it cult-classic status”.
The PC version is designed to take advantage of increased specs. Players can explore Boston and Le Carré in higher resolution, undertake their investigations with more fluidity thanks to reduced loading times and enjoy improved performance overall.
