The developers of The Talos Principle have another game in the series on the way, and you don't have long to wait to play it at all.

Croteam unveiled The Talos Principle 2 at PlayStation showcase with a vibrant trailer, showing off the sort of futuristic visuals you'd expect from a first-person puzzle game that riffs on philosophical science fiction. We start with a few shots of ancient civilisations before seeing a white robotic figure rise from a machine in a dormant room. 

"A new world awaits you", the trailer booms before we're treated to stunning next-gen visuals. The rest of the trailer goes hard on the mood of the world, making for some pleasant viewing. 

You don't have long to wait for the release, either, as the trailer confirms it'll release this year for PS5, Xbox X|S, and PC. That's all for now, though, so you'll have to hang tight to see more.

Tucked away in the description of that trailer, we also see mention of "more mind-bending puzzles to solve, new puzzle mechanics, a richer storyline, more secrets to uncover, and the biggest, weirdest world Croteam has ever built."

Released back in 2014, The Talos Principle is a first-person puzzle game based on  philosophical science fiction. Made by Croteam and written by some of the talents behind FTL and The Sea Will Claim Everything, it's long been a beloved gem. Close to ten years later, we're finally getting that sequel.

Here's everything announced at the PlayStation Showcase 2023 if you want some more.
