Pre-orders Live for Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, New Trailer Released

Just over 10 years ago videogame veteran Tim Schafer and his studio Double Fine Productions launched platform adventure title Psychonauts. The team has confirmed a sequel in the form of Psychonauts 2, scheduled for release in 2018, but to bridge that gap the team has created a virtual reality (VR) version called Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin which can now be pre-ordered for PlayStation VR. 

Fans can head to the PlayStation.Store to place their order prior to launch on 21st February. Those that do will be treated to a pre-order bonus, the original PlayStation 2 title Psychonauts. And if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber you’ll get a 10 percent discount, dropping the price from $19.99 USD to $17.99. Customers in other countries will have to check their regional stores for availability, currently the UK store doesn’t list the pre-order.


Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin continues the story from the previous videogame with players assume the role of Raz, a young psychic and member of the Psychonauts — an elite group of international psychic secret agents – although you don’t need to have played the original to follow what’s going on. A first-person adventure, players will use Raz’s various psychic powers – such as Clairvoyance, Telekinesis and Pyrokinesis – to manipulate the world, and solve puzzles, with the mission taking them straight into the heart of the Rhombus of Ruin.

To compliment the announcement Double Fine has released a new trailer for the experience which can be viewed below. For any further updates from the studio, keep reading VRFocus.
