The Talos Principle DLC, Road to Gehenna, Announcned
The Talos Principle, the narrative puzzle game that shocked the gaming community, is barely four months old and the first DLC from Croteam has been announced for it. Road to Gehenna will explore new ground within the same gloriously rendered story as before.
The Talos Principle will receive its first DLC, Road to Gehenna, this spring. It’ll be available for the PlayStation 4, the NVIDIA Shield and the PC.
The new DLC will continue the story told in The Talos Principle but will instead follow the narrative of Uriel, a messenger of Elohim. As Uriel, you’ll be tasked to explore the world around you, solve complex and difficult puzzles and even have the chance to free the souls of the damned. All of that will be spread across four separate episodes featured within Road to Gehenna.
Our writers, Tom Jubert and Jonas Kyratzes, have taken on the task of showing you an entirely different side of Elohim’s world. Your journey to Gehenna will not only introduce you to new characters, but to a whole new society with its own history and philosophy. We tried to press Jonas and Tom for more concrete details, but all we got were obscure philosophical statements about authenticity and the quantifying nature of the internet.
The Talos Principle is another masterpiece that came from a most unexpected source, Croteam, the developers of the whimsicle and gory Serious Sam franchise. They said that the original idea of the game was actually born out their dabbling with the new engine they created, but it evolved into something quite spectacular indeed.
If you’ve never experienced the wonder that is The Talos Principle, I suggest you do. You take on the role of a robot who is guided by Elohim, a disembodied voice, who guides and directs, and even discourages, the development of you as the robot. It’s a narrative-driven puzzle game much in the same vain as Portal, though perhaps with a more serious tone to it. But it’s absolutely delightful to play. A true gem from an unlikely source.
