During yesterday's Xbox Partner Preview, the Ukrainian studio Frogwares presented us (below) its latest project, The Sinking City 2.

The second installment of the survival horror, the action of which is set in a universe inspired by the prose of H.P. Lovecraft, will be released in 2025 on PC, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 5.

Similar to the first game, the story will take us to the 1920s. This time, however, we will visit the town of Arkham, iconic in Cthulhu mythology. It fell victim to a supernatural flood, along with which a terrifying plague flowed into the American town, turning people into monsters.

  • The Sinking City 2 will tell a completely different story from the one we saw in the first installment.
  • The game will offer a semi-open world. Its structure will change depending on the plot developments. Interestingly, as the story progresses, the water level in the city will rise, changing the existing locations.
  • The emphasis on the survival horror aspect will be greater in The Sinking City 2 compared to the 2019 game.
  • Exploration, combat, and rational equipment management are crucial aspects of gameplay.
  • Many hidden puzzles will appear in the game, providing us with valuable items or delivering extra information about the lore.
  • During the game, we will also conduct investigations, which this time will be fully optional.

Finally, it's worth mentioning that The Sinking City 2 is being developed on Unreal Enigne 5.
