There is an extensive PlayStation Blog post detailing some of the elements of the game, which is being developed by Thomas Happ. The trailer showcases the new focus on melee weapons — the first game was all about that long-range damage — and the new environments. The Tundra looks really, really cold, even in 2D.

Below is the announcement trailer, not the one that was shown during the Day of the Devs event... we'll update this article with the new trailer as soon is it hits YouTube.

Did you like the look of this? Have you played the first game? Let us know!

Hey, I'm Kes! I'm a Staff Writer, and I've been here since 2021. What do I like? The Outer Wilds is top notch. The Witcher 3 blew my mind over the course of five years completing it. I want Burnout back — I really miss crunching mechanical wonders into walls to the sound of Guns N' Roses. Cool, now we are acquainted, I'll see you around.
