Toxic Games has announced that its first-person puzzle adventure game, Q.U.B.E. 2, will come out in the first quarter of 2018 and released a gameplay trailer for it. The new trailer showcases how Q.U.B.E. 2 begins in cold, pristine environments before more natural elements begin to encroach into the spaces of the monolith, players will be exploring.
Q.U.B.E. 2 promises to feature a gripping linear story, within a more open-ended framework, that allows players to combine game mechanics in new and exciting ways.
Dan Da Rocha, Managing Director at Toxic Games, said:
“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. 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.”
Q.U.B.E. 2 features a new cast of characters thrust into an unearthly situation that will delight both newcomers and fans of its predecessor alike. This 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. Armed with 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.
