The Talos Principle pops up on Xbox One achievement site

Step into the light my child

It’s been three years since Zack-with-the-great-hair reported that an ESRB listing for The Talos Principle on Xbox One could mean that the philosophical puzzler was about to wash up on Xbox’s shores. While there hasn’t been any recent word from Croteam about this port, The Talos Principle showed up on the achievement tracker website Xboxachievements overnight. Could this possibly mean that the release is right around the corner?

With no official statement from Croteam, all we have to go off of is the listing, which means no release window, or price point. It does look like the release will be similar to the PlayStation 4 port that contained the Road to Gehenna expansion as Gehenna achievements are present on the list. That’s not to say that they will be sold separately but I can’t see Croteam/Devolver giving Xbox users a big middle finger like that, especially after such a long wait.

I try not to hype things up for myself or other people because I feel like hype is a dangerous thing and ultimately leads to disappointment when you finally get to play the final product; but The Talos Principle is without a doubt one of the best games I’ve ever played. The writing is beautifully poetic, the gameplay relaxing to a point of zen and the expansion feels like an actual expansion of old. Whenever this does come to Xbox One, it would be well worth your time and money.
