PAX East 2020: ‘Psychonauts 2’ Unveils Gameplay Demo

by Tito W. James

At PAX East, the developers at Doublefine gave players a look at the vibrant and mind-bending first level of Psychonauts 2.

Raz displays returning abilities such as psychic energy blasts, telekinesis, and pyrokinesis. These abilities have evolved to match with new gameplay mechanics.

With Raz telekinesis can now yank objects from the environment and hurl them at enemies. Raz’s pyrokinetic power now operates as a radius attack that slowly brings surrounding objects to a burning point.

There are new enemies to fight, such as the gelatinous “Regrets” and wasp-like “Doubts” carrying massive weights. Players can use Raz’s telekinesis to yank a weight from a Doubt and use it to crush another enemy. The Regrets are highly combustible, so they can be turned into living bonfires with pyrokinesis.

Players can dive into the minds of Psychonauts 2 late 2020.
