Psychonauts 2’s first story trailer introduces the Motherlobe

The Motherlobe is filled with mysteries

Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

At the 2018 Game Awards, Double Fine and Starbreeze showed off the first story-based trailer for Psychonauts 2. While there is some light gameplay shown toward the end of the trailer, the main focus is on introducing the Motherlobe, a secret fortress of mind secrets that the sequel seems to focus on.

This trailer makes one of the few appearances of Psychonauts 2 in the last year, with the last real news around the game popping up last year, when it was delayed past 2018. Despite a newly announced 2019 window, we currently have little else to go off on when this long-awaited game will launch. However, it does seem that the 13-year wait for a sequel to the beloved, quirky, psychological adventure game will finally come to an end soon.

Psychonauts 2 is expected to launch at some point in 2019. This all comes after the game’s successful backing on Fig back in 2016. Backers pledged 3.8 million dollars toward the long awaited sequel, surpassing the backing goal by $500,000.
