The First Gameplay Footage of Psychonauts 2 is Looking Good

Raz returns for another Inception-y adventure.

Double Fine Productions released the first, off-camera gameplay footage of Psychonauts 2 to celebrate hitting its playable milestone.

The gameplay video offers us an over-the-shoulder look at one of the first playable areas in Psychonauts 2 as series protagonist Raz once again ventures into the mindspace of other characters. Along with gameplay footage of the new jungled area, the video also covers other aspects of Psychonaut 2's development including the music, art, and combat. You can check out the full 14 minute video below.

Psychonauts 2 was announced back in 2015 at The Game Awards in Los Angeles before getting crowdfunded through Fig, a crowdsourcing platforms that also offers backers a chance to invest in a product. Psychonauts 2 is a proper sequel to 2005's Psychonauts for the original Xbox and 2017's Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin for PlayStation VR.

Psychonauts 2 is slated for a 2018 launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac.
