First person puzzler teases upcoming gameplay in new trailer.
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. Together they must find a way home.
Over the course of 11 chapters, players will step into Amelia’s shoes, exploring the structure and solving its puzzles to progress. Combine the abilities of the “manipulation gloves” with the alien technology of the monolith for an open ended gameplay adventure featuring over 80 puzzles. In 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.
Say the developers, Toxic Games:
The gameplay trailer for Q.U.B.E. 2 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.
We can expect the game to be released in the first quarter of this year, for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. If you can’t wait that long, the original, award winning prequel is available on PS4, Xbox One, Android and PS Vita, with the definitive director’s cut of Q.U.B.E. on Steam for £6.99 / €7.99 / $9.99.
