DreadOut 2 Release Date, More Ghostly Camera Combat Confirmed
Schoolgirls can never catch a break in the horror realm, and the smartphone-wielding Linda is in for more terror as DreadOut 2 is now confirmed for a February 20 release date.
Indonesian mythology will once again collide with camera-focused horror mechanics, although this time we can expect more of a non-linear experience than what's found in DreadOut.
The Digital Happiness development team commented on the surprise news, saying:
[DreadOut 2 is] a unique take on third-person action-adventure survival horror injected with Indonesian supernatural culture. Gameplay is a mix of city exploration, DreadOut-style smartphone ghost hunting, and new action-packed battles within DreadOut‘s supernatural world.
Even though [it] is a horror game at heart, with its touch of silly high school problems, satirical social commentary, and touchy, yet memorable moments, DreadOut 2 is a fresh take on the survival horror genre.
Whether it's "fresh" or not remains to be seen, but those interested can wishlist DreadOut 2 on Steam. Even though the team shared this release date news, the game's Steam page still hasn't been updated with the new info or a price.
