It lists the horror sequel as scheduled for release digitally via Steam later this year.
Deadly Premonition 2 is both a sequel and a prequel to the first game. It involves a modern-day story revolving around two FBI agents who are investigating a case long thought to be closed, and their hope that agent Morgan – now an emaciated, hostile shadow of his former self – can be relied on to help them solve it.
The prequel element, which is set in 2005 and takes up the lion’s share of the adventure, sees agent Morgan investigating a bizarre ritualistic murder in a small (fictional) New Orleans town called Le Carré.
VGC’s Deadly Premonition 2 review concluded: “Fans of the original Deadly Premonition need not worry: this sequel’s tone is spot on, offering another delightfully delirious adventure in absurdity.
“Unfortunately, its technical issues are among the worst of any reasonably high-profile game in living memory: this will drastically affect the enjoyment factor for all but the most die-hard devotees.”
