The Fall Part 2: Unbound has had a new update video that details its new release date as well as showing off some new gameplay footage.
Over The Moon has made the decision to delay The Fall Part 2: Unbound by a few months, with a multi platform launch now scheduled for February 2018. While the game is essentially done, releasing it in October, November or December, among all the AAA titles, is commercial suicide. This extra time will also allow Over The Moon to further polish the game, with every platform getting a version of The Fall Part 2: Unbound that makes the most of its capabilities. Over The Moon can also re-confirm that The Fall Part 2: Unbound will be launching simultaneously and for the same price on all platforms – PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
With its deep story and host of unusual characters, The Fall Part 2: Unbound explores themes of artificial intelligence, identity, and the challenge of coping with other beings, with their own quirks, limitations, and personal boundaries. Its gameplay and its story are specifically designed to make players reflect on these ideas, through the familiar framework of a Metroidvania meets Point and Click Adventure. Players will control A.R.I.D., an abandoned and broken AI who struggles to survive a collapse in her operating parameters. ARID must re-establish her boundaries by attempting to build her own rules before a dark, mysterious software process snuffs her out for good. The Fall Part 2: Unbound is made for players who have been waiting for the conceptual underpinning of games to catch up with their technological artistry.
The Fall Part 2: Unbound is coming to the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, and Linux in February 2018.
