From Press Release:
Paris, September 15th 2020 – DONTNOD Entertainment is delighted to announce that Twin Mirror™, its upcoming narrative video game co-produced with Shibuya Productions, will launch on December 1st on PC (Epic Games Store), PlayStation®4 and Xbox One™. Pre-orders are open as of today on the Epic Games Store and anyone pre-ordering the game will receive the Twin Mirror™ original soundtrack as a digital pre-order bonus.
To celebrate this announcement, DONTNOD is sharing a new gameplay trailer showcasing the main character Sam Higgs’ Mind Palace.
As a former investigative journalist, Sam Higgs has developed multiple analytical skills represented in the game by the Mind Palace, a place where players will discover multiple aspects of his personality.
Thanks to unique gameplay mechanics serving the narrative, Sam’s Mind Palace is a safe space where the protagonist can be his true self without any pressure or judgment. Players will be able to revisit Sam’s past and witness his memories during flashback sequences.
Sam’s Mind Palace also plays a central part in his quest for the truth. Players will be able to study the environment and gather clues allowing the simulation of multiple scenarios to deduct the course of events or predict the story’s key turning points.
Facing dramatic events and the ghosts of his past, Sam is progressively losing control of this haven of peace. He also soon discovers that the Mind Palace doesn’t really help him confront his fears or reconnect with his acquaintances.
That’s when the Double comes into play. This is a character only Sam can see. A representation of himself more emphatic and social. Sam can always rely on this ally to guide him through social interactions and navigate a society that sometimes rejects singularity.
Twin Mirror™ is DONTNOD’s first self-published title and co-produced with Shibuya Productions. In this psychological thriller Sam Higgs is coming back to Basswood, his childhood town, for his best friend’s funeral. It quickly becomes obvious that this little West Virginian city holds numerous dark secrets. The former investigative journalist will employ his deductive skills to uncover the mysteries surrounding the city and its inhabitants. Dealing with his past, Sam will be torn between his quest for truth and his desire to reconnect with relatives. Who can he really trust?
Twin Mirror™ will be released on the 1st of December on PlayStation®4 (PlayStation Store), on Xbox One™ (Xbox Live) and PC. The digital PC version will be exclusively available on the Epic Games Store for one year.
