The wait has been long but it’s almost over because Oxenfree II: Lost Signals is out in just a few months.
Developer Night School Studio revealed today during a Nintendo Indie World Showcase that Oxenfree II is out July 12. It will release on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC. Alongside this release date, Night School Studio also released a new trailer showcasing more of what to expect in this spooky paranormal thriller and there’s a lot going on.
Set five years after the first Oxenfree, which was released in 2016, Oxenfree II follows Riley as she returns to her hometown of Camena to investigate some strange electromagnetic waves. Just four hours ago, a mysterious cult opened a portal above Edwards Island, and Riley and her friends aren’t sure they’re the ones that need to save the island but they know they have to. The trailer seems to indicate we’ll be playing with different timelines, spooky ghosts from other side, and more, and we’ll be doing so using a special radio.
This time, though, we’ll also have a walkie talkie to interact with locals and learn more about what might be going on. Oxenfree II: Lost Signals looks great and it hits PlayStation, Switch, and PC on July 12, 2023.
Oxenfree II: Lost Signals was originally due out in 2022 but it was delayed to 2023 last September. About a year before that delay, the game’s developer was acquired by Netflix and you can read more about what that means for the studio here.
