Pathologic 2 to Receive Next Character, the Bachelor

Pathologic 2's next addition will be the Bachelor.

It seemed even the developers of Pathologic 2 weren't initially sure the game's additional characters and their stories were going to be developed, but today we do have confirmation another character is coming to the plague and paranoia-infested village.

Pathologic 2 is a reimagining of the original game, but released only with the Haruspex as a playable character. It's not going to be that way forever, though — the developers over at Ice-Pick Lodge have confirmed they are working on the next character's story.

The Bachelor from the original game will be the next character added to Pathologic 2, with his own unique story and gameplay from Haruspex. With him will come a "raising of the bar" from the original release.

Few RPGs are as harrowing and unforgiving as Pathologic, and by extension this re-imagining in Pathologic 2. Players must manage their vital functions like hunger and thirst while attempting to unravel the mystery behind a plague eating a small town both physically and mentally.

Ice-Pick Lodge are also working on three other intriguing titles this year: Know by Heart, Neuro Skazka, and Franz. More details on these titles can be seen on the official site, though they're scarce until the studio decides to give us a glimpse into them sometime later this year.
