Tune in for more chills on more consoles
Oxenfree II: Lost Signals, the sequel to 2016’s indie surprise hit Oxenfree, is adding more platforms to its launch. Over on the PlayStation Blog today, Night School Studio confirmed the thriller is coming to PS4 and PS5.
Previously revealed as a pretty pleasant surprise during a Nintendo Indie World Showcase, Oxenfree II: Lost Signals was only confirmed for Nintendo Switch and PC sometime this year. In today’s trailer, Night School tacks on PS4 and PS5, and also notes Oxenfree II is “coming soon.”
Oh, it’s also very creepy. Very, very creepy.
Lead writer and Night School co-founder Adam Hines expanded a bit on the plot of Oxenfree II in today’s blog as well. Though Oxenfree was a coming-of-age story, starring high schoolers caught in the supernatural happenings of Edwards Island, Oxenfree II will star Riley Poverly. She’s someone who is “grappling with the repercussions of post-adolescence,” grappling with the choices she’s made in life and the person she’s become over the years.
So yes, it sounds like Oxenfree II: Lost Signals will also have a lot of emotions to struggle with, amid all the scares and eerie atmosphere. And don’t worry, it looks like the atmosphere is still as haunting as ever. Riley’s job, as an entry-level environmental researcher, seems to have led her right smack-dab into the middle of some supernatural happenings.
A few other indies coming to PlayStation were also shown off on the PlayStation blog today, including the Greek god roguelike Hades, the “reverse-horror” experience Carrion, and a look at a new mechanic coming to Axiom Verge 2. Be sure to check out the full lineup over on the blog.
Oxenfree II: Lost Signals is “coming soon” to Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and PS5.
