A suprise Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise The PC port was just announced during GamesRadar’s Future Game Show live stream – and it’s available to play now.
The sequel to 2010 Twin peaks-Inspired cult classic originally released exclusively on Nintendo Switch in 2020, but at the time there was no word on a release for other platforms. That changed today (June 11), with a surprise announcement accompanied by a humorous trailer featuring the game’s director, SWERY, staring at the message, “All work and no DP2 Steam port makes Swery a boring boy” displayed repeatedly on a computer screen.
The game received mixed reception upon release, with the Switch version being criticized for its performance and technical issues. These were mostly noticeable frame rate drops when exploring the open world. The game was also the subject of controversy over the dead name and wrong gender of a trans character, but this was later addressed in a patch, with SWERY apologizing for any offense caused via his Twitter account.
SWERY’s most recent game was 2021 The good life, which was produced in collaboration with Panzer Dragoon creator Yukio Futatsugi. The game saw players controlling New York journalist Naomi Haywood as she investigated the English village Rainy Woods. The reason for this is due to the belief that the village holds a secret where its inhabitants transform into cats and dogs.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is available for purchase now on PC for £33.99, but it’s reduced to £23.79 until June 18. Mouse and keyboard support for the port is currently unavailable at the time of publication.
