Deceit 2 gameplay trailer
Released via the Future Games Show, we now have our first gameplay trailer for Deceit 2.
Released on June 10, the trailer shows the infected Terrors transforming and hunting down the Truth Seekers as they attempt to escape.
It also shows the various abilities and items the Truth Seekers now have, including the ability to clone into several iterations of the same character which is sure to sow the seeds of chaos during gameplay.
Deceit 2 gameplay
Through hands-on time with preview builds and previous media releases, Deceit 2 is shaping up to take the foundations set by the original title and add more traditional horror sandbox elements to it.
The goal of the Truth Seekers will be to complete tasks on the map to earn 'Souls'. These Souls go into a collective pool, which can then be traded with the mysterious Peddler in return for abilities and items to help them escape.
Terrors can perform rituals to derail the Truth Seekers who can only escape once they have earnt enough Souls to purchase the escape key.
You can cast votes against suspicious players and certain items from the Peddler can change the dynamics of the game.
Along with new characters and returning ones from the previous game, there will be new Terror designs.
If you enjoyed the original game or are looking to play a new multiplayer horror co-op game, you can add Deceit 2 to your Steam wishlist now.
