The game’s epic Highlands of Avalon DLC will be available the same day, bringing a brand new island type to the base game, a new mechanic related to traversing hills and valleys, a new tribe called the Picts, eight new recruitable characters, new equipment, enemies and more! Switch owners need not feel left out as the DLC is coming to their platform of choice on that very day, too.
Curious Expedition 2 is a Jules Verne-inspired pulp adventure in a reimagined version of the late 19th century that uses procedural gameplay and story elements to create completely unique and epic adventures every time you play. Both the players’ character and those they recruit are all procedurally-generated with specific classes, their own unique looks, abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. On your adventures, all manner of unforeseen circumstances can positively or negatively impact your progress, so careful resource and sanity management are needed to make it back home with your spoils – and your team!
To celebrate the announcement that Curious Expedition 2 will be available on PlayStation and Xbox on March 17th, a new trailer has been released for the game, showcasing its beautiful audiovisual direction, charming writing, accessible, yet deep gameplay, and branching story systems.
“We are so excited to reveal that Curious Expedition 2 will soon be out on PlayStation and Xbox – Creating this game has been quite the journey in itself..For all you adventurers out there, we wish you good luck on your travels. The base game and the Highlands of Avalon DLC are just the beginning – with two additional DLCs planned, now also on these consoles, there’s a lot more to come from us in the future!”
