The Talos Principle 2 Launches 2nd November

Talos Principle 2

Those eager to solve more puzzles while also delving into philosophy will be happy to hear that The Talos Principle 2 finally has a release date. Even better, it’s not all that far away.

Croteam and Devolver Digital has announced that The Talos Priciple 2 will launch on 2nd November – that’s just over a month away. There’s an incentive to pre-order the title, too, whether that’s on PS5, Xbox Series X/S or PC: 10% off the RRP, which is already a very reasonable £24.99. So, £22.49 for a sequel that aims to improve on the original in every possible way – that sounds like a bargain to us.

Following on from the events of the original, The Talos Principle 2 will task players with exploring yet more gorgeous environments, solving a variety of puzzles along the way. Many will once again require players to manipulate beams, but there’s set to be more variety in this sequel’s conundrums. Players will also have more choice when it comes to which puzzles to complete, with each area having puzzles with varying difficulty levels, and items to find that allow some puzzles to be skipped.

You can read our hands-off preview of The Talos Principle 2 to find out more. And if you’re new to the series, there’s never been a better time to jump in, what with the original game and its DLC currently available for 90% off on Steam. It means you can get yourself acquainted with the franchise’s unique brand of puzzle action for just £2.48. Or you can buy The Talos Principle 1 + 2 bundle on Steam for the same price as simply pre-ordering the sequel, effectively giving you access to the original game for free. Be quick, though, as this offer ends on 3rd October.
