Curious Expedition 2 PlayStation and Xbox Release

Thunderful Publishing and independent developer Maschinen-Mensch released their narrative roguelike pulp adventure Curious Expedition 2 on Xbox and PlayStation.

The game, previously available on PC and Nintendo Switch, is available on PS4 and Xbox One and is also playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility. With the launch also comes console access to the Highlands of Avalon DLC previously available only for the PC version of the game.

Inspired by pen and paper RPGs this Jules Verne-esque adventure places players in the boots of an explorer. After assembling a crew it is time for an expedition into the unknown. All sorts of cultures, flora, fauna, treasures, and more await discovery. Who knows what one will find?

We’re really excited that Curious Expeditions 2 is now available on PlayStation and Xbox. We’ve tweaked and refined the game during its adventures on PC in response to community feedback, so this console version of Curious Expedition 2 is the best the game has ever been. I wish the PlayStation and Xbox communities good luck on their varied and intriguing expeditions!
