In its most recent update, Idea Factory lays out its exploration systems in the upcoming horror-inspired RPG Death end re;Quest 2, which finds our heroine Mai setting off into the nighttime streets of La Choara.
Exploration is broken into two parts: Dark Shadow and Buggy Skills. When the clock strikes midnight, Le Choara turns into a town filled with Shadow Matter. One type of Shadow Matter, called Dark Shadow, may randomly appear in a dungeon. Dark Shadows are relentless and will do everything in their power to end you.
Buggy Skills are character-specific abilities that can be used to progress through a certain level. They include:
Mai: Hacking – Access a computer to hack into security cameras positioned around dungeons.
Rottie: Mosquito Jump – Float into the air over obstacles that cannot be scaled with a normal jump.
Liliana: Destructo Bat – Destroy seemingly unbreakable magical barriers.
Idea Factory previously released information on the game’s battle techniques.
Death end re;Quest 2 will launch on the PlayStation 4 on Aug. 25, 2020 in North America and Aug. 28 in Europe. The Steam version will launch worldwide on Aug. 25. The Steam version will contain the original Glitch costumes for the first game’s characters and will have English, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese subtitles. The first game’s characters only appear in their Glitch costumes during battle and in the main menu. The Steam version will implement the original Glitch costumes in both instances.
