It’s one of our most anticipated games of 2018 and today confirmation has come about that Q.U.B.E. 2 will launch in Q1 2018. To celebrate that news the indie devs at Toxic Games have released a rather lovely gameplay trailer. You won’t want to miss it!
Coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC in Q1 2018, Q.U.B.E. 2 will follow up from the original game with a gripping story, a more open-ended framework and the chance to combine game mechanics in new and super exciting ways.
The new trailer below shows off the cold and pristine environments that will play host to Q.U.B.E. 2., as the first person puzzle adventure prepares to gear up for release. With a new cast of characters that will delight both newcomers and fans of its predecessor alike, the sequel puts players in the role of archaeologist Amelia Cross as she awakens in an alien world with no memory of how she got there. Coming armed with just a strange pair of gloves that let her manipulate the environment, Amelia must navigate a maze-like monolith full of puzzles in search of another survivor, Commander Emma Sutcliffe, whom she is connected to via radio communication. Together they must find a way home.
11 chapters will be in place and these will allow players who step into Amelia’s shoes the chance to explore and solve puzzles to progress. Combining the abilities of the “manipulation gloves” with the alien technology of the monolith for an open ended gameplay adventure that features over 80 puzzles, Q.U.B.E. 2 will bring you a story that explores themes of trust, isolation, and humanity, thought-provoking questions about your true purpose and the origins of the structure you’re navigating will need to be considered, forcing you to come to terms with a devastating truth that will shake your world.
“The Gameplay Trailer shows off the experience players can expect come launch, including improved glove controls and more complex puzzles. We want to deliver players a title with production values that belie the small team creating it,” said Dan Da Rocha, Managing Director at Toxic Games. “However most importantly, we aim to deliver a great narrative experience, wrapped in gameplay that offers players some room for experimentation and more open ended puzzle solving in particular instances.”
