Independent video game developer Night School Studio and publisher MWM Interactive have revealed that the supernatural mystery-thriller game, OXENFREE II: Lost Signals, will be available on PlayStation®5 and PlayStation®4 at launch in 2022. Set five years after the events of the original OXENFREE, the highly anticipated sequel will take players on a gripping narrative-driven adventure featuring an all-new cast of characters and original story.

You can learn more about OXENFREE II: Lost Signals’ lead protagonist, Riley Poverly, including never before seen character images, in today’s PlayStation Blog here.
 

“Launching OXENFREE II on PlayStation is a perfect fit. Now even more players can explore the beautifully weird and eerie world our team is creating,” said Sean Krankel, co-founder and studio director at Night School Studio. “With OXENFREE II: Lost Signals, we want players to carve out their own story in a frightening new location. We are crafting an adventure that builds on the mind-bending, choice-based storytelling of the original while introducing a new cast and series of dangerous mysteries for players to unravel.”
 

OXENFREE II: Lost Signals follows the story of Riley, an environmental researcher who returns to her hometown Camena to investigate mysterious radio frequency signals causing disturbances in electronic equipment throughout the small town. She soon discovers a long history of ghostly happenings on the nearby Edwards Island and becomes entangled in a frightening, supernatural mystery. Featuring Night School Studio’s signature, naturalistic dialogue system, OXENFREE II: Lost Signals gives players more agency  to shape their experience in unexpected ways. 
 

OXENFREE II: Lost Signals will be available in 2022. Follow Night School Studio on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram or visit the official website at www.nightschoolstudio.com/oxenfree for more updates. Press kit can be found here.
