Over The Moon announced that The Fall Part 2: Unbound is currently available right now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. Additionally, if you have the PC version you will be able to play it on Mac and Linux.
The game is the second part of a three part trilogy, where players take on the roles of three distinct characters, each with their own unique paths, stories and playability, giving gamers a very different kind of narrative path than what was presented in the first game.
According to Over The Moon founder, John Warner, he explained that over the years they decided to try something new by taking a different approach to the design, mentioning in the press release…
“We worked extremely hard to create a game that built on where we left our AI protagonist. Part 2 takes our initial story about rules and protocol and builds it into a truly rich and complex experience. It’s been a difficult but incredibly rewarding development process and we’re waiting with baited breath to see what players think of it.”
You take on the roles of One a combat drone; A.R.I.D., the rogue AI; and a divorced butler.
You can see what the gameplay is like with the launch trailer below.
The AI has one purpose in mind and that’s to find and destroy the one responsible for attempting to destroy it. The AI ends up meeting up with a sexy companion droid by taking over her body and forcing her to do things she really doesn’t want to do.
The trailer showcases how players will be able to either do exactly what A.R.I.D., wants or attempt to defy the odds by choosing to give the Companion her own will. Of course, the more you fight back against A.R.I.D., the more dangerous the AI becomes.
The game mixes in a number of different gameplay types together, including point-and-click interactions with NPCs, side-scrolling run-and-gun mechanics, and some light logic-based puzzle solving.
The original The Fall ended up receiving some fairly decent review scores, so don’t be surprised if the sequel manages to do the same.
