We often like to highlight new releases at Pure Xbox that may have gone under the radar a little bit but are nevertheless attracting a particularly positive reception, and November 2nd's The Talos Principle 2 is definitely one of those.
This "thought-provoking first-person puzzle experience" is obviously a sequel to the 2014 original (which arrived on Xbox in 2018), featuring an interactive story with multiple endings as part of a sublime, mind-bending adventure.
And yes, The Talos Principle 2 has received some fantastic reviews so far. In addition to the "Overwhelmingly Positive" rating on Steam and five-star rating on the Xbox Store, the game also holds a Metacritic score of 88.
So, if you're a big fan of puzzle games and you liked what the first Talos Principle had to offer, you're in very good hands with the sequel. It's available now on the Xbox Store for £24.99 / $29.99.
Here's a bit more information about The Talos Principle 2 along with a few screenshots:
"The Talos Principle 2 is a thought-provoking first-person puzzle experience that greatly expands on the first game's philosophical themes and stunning environments with increasingly mind-bending challenges."
