The Talos Principle 2 Demo is Available Now on PC

It showcases early puzzles before going to “roughly a halfway point.” Due to being “specially tailored,” progress won’t carry over.

Croteam’s The Talos Principle 2, the long-awaited sequel to the acclaimed 2014 puzzle title, is finally releasing next month. In the meantime, fans can download a free demo, currently available on Steam. Check out the trailer for it below.

The demo is “specially tailored,” meaning your progress will not carry over into the game. It offers a taste of the puzzles encountered early on, then moves to “roughly a halfway point.” It’s to demonstrate how they “evolve,” likely in the overall complexity and mechanics required.

Croteam already confirmed new systems like manipulating gravity and transferring one’s mind, which can be seen in the trailer, so we’ll see how deep the rabbit hole goes. There are also over 12 gorgeous environments to explore and unearth secrets for, not to mention a litany of robots to interact with.

The Talos Principle 2 launches on November 2nd for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC.
