Deadly Premonition 2, the sequel to SWERY’s cult open-world survival horror game, will be released on Steam for PC later this year. The news comes immediately from the latest annual report of Thunderful Group, the parent company of the game publisher Rising Star Games.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise was originally released as a Nintendo Switch exclusive in July 2020, although it didn’t get exactly the same acclaim as the franchise’s first installment. In Wccftech’s review, Nate rated it just a 5.5 out of 10, with the following closing comments:
[…] most of the things that Deadly Premonition did well (atmosphere, characters, open world) aren’t that good in the sequel, but what about the thing that definitely didn’t do the original right – the action sequences? I’m sorry to say they aren’t that good either. As before, you will occasionally have to enter a dark alternate dimension where you shoot enemies from a Resident-Evil-like perspective over the shoulder, but everything just feels slower and clunkier this time. All the dungeons you fight through look the same, and the really freaky enemies from the first Deadly Premonition have been replaced with repetitive bad guys who look like they’ve been ripped out of a second-tier RPG. These action scenes are not even a distant challenge, they are just plain boring. Worst of all, there is no equivalent to the “Raincoat Killer” in this game. In the original DP, the Raincoat Killer was constantly chasing you, popping up at inconvenient moments and causing real shock, and the absence of anything similar in this game is a real blow.
Deadly Premonition 2 took me about 15 hours to complete, and I admit I gobbled up the game in about three days without too much indigestion. Honestly, my experience wasn’t terrible, but by the time I hit the credits, my craving for more Deadly Premonition had largely passed.
