Twin Mirror, Dontnod’s New Mystery Game, Will Launch in December
Twin Mirror is officially heading to consoles and PC this December, with a new gameplay trailer showing more from the mystery title.
With the Life is Strange series and the recently-released Tell Me Why under its belt, Dontnod Entertainment have become experts at crafting engaging episodic narrative games. The next major release from the studio is the upcoming Twin Mirror, and after the game’s reveal over two years ago, the upcoming title is finally set for release later this year.
Developer and publisher Dontnod Entertainment has announced that Twin Mirror will officially launch on December 1, 2020 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, which will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store. Alongside the release date for the title, Dontnod also confirmed that pre-orders are now available for the game across all platforms, which will also include its digital soundtrack for free.
You can take a look at a new gameplay trailer for the title below, which gives a deeper look into the mystery adventure game:
Originally announced as an episodic narrative game in the style of Life is Strange, Dontnod Entertainment confirmed over the summer that Twin Mirror will instead be released as a complete experience from beginning to end. While its past titles like Life is Strange used an episodic structure that spanned over several months, Tell Me Why instead released in weekly installments over the course of three chapters. With Twin Mirror, it seems like Dontnod is continuing to experiment with how it is releasing its games, this time opting to release the entire experience at once.
From what we’ve seen from the game so far, Twin Mirror focuses on an investigative journalist named Sam who returns to his hometown of Basswood, West Virginia. Once there, he begins investigating mysterious happenings in the town with the use of his inner voice, which may help or hinder the investigation based on what decisions that players make throughout the game.
Twin Mirror will arrive on December 1, 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
