Psychonauts 2 Update Makes 100-Percenting the Game Much Less Frustrating

Submit

Psychonauts 2 is a mostly-great experience, but if you were out to 100 percent the game – to grab every collectible and achievement – the game could get a little frustrating. Thankfully, Double Fine have released a new “quality of life” update that largely focuses on a number of tweaks that make finding every bit and bob easier. You can also expect improved stability and performance, and a variety of bug fixes. Here’s Tim Schafer and Psychonauts 2 lead designer Seth Marinello to explain what the patch has to offer.

Xbox Game Pass Adds Halo Infinite, Stardew Valley, Among Us, and More in Early December
