Coming out at the tail-end of last year’s holiday season, Croteam’s complex puzzler The Talos Principle quickly drew a devoted following for its Portal-esque challenges, and now those looking for more robotic challenges will have more puzzles to look forward to at the end of the month.
Developer Croteam announced through its website that a new episodic expansion for The Talos Principle will begin releasing this month, titled The Talos Principle: Road to Gehenna. The new expansion will release over four episodes, with the first episode to release on July 23rd, 2015. The Steam Community page announcing the expansion detailed what players can expect from Road to Gehenna:
“The Talos Principle: Road to Gehenna will consist of four episodes that take experienced players through some of the most advanced and challenging puzzles yet. Players will return to a strange, hidden part of the simulation as Uriel, Elohim’s messenger, and attempt to free the souls trapped in this mysterious place.”
The new expansion will release for PC, Mac, and Linux through Steam and while pricing information has not officially been revealed yet, the Steam Community page for the expansion jokingly mentioned that ““The original plan was to divide The Talos Principle: Road to Gehenna into over 100 different $5 DLCs but the Devolver Digital DLC Ethics Department advised against it. That particular department has subsequently been disbanded.”
While we don’t know for sure yet, it seems to be hinting the new expansion will be free to owners of The Talos Principle on all platforms.
The Talos Principle is available now for PC, Mac, Linux, and Android, along with a PS4 release later this year: the first episode of Road to Gehenna will release for PC, Mac, and Linux on July 23rd, 2015. In the meantime, you can check out several screenshots from the upcoming expansion below:
