Twin Mirror was announced two years ago and, by the looks of it, it takes investigative thrillers to a whole new level. Developed by Dontnod Entertainment, the team behind Vampyr and Tell Me Why, the game chronicles the journey of Sam Higgs, a former investigative journalist, as he sets out to uncover the secrets of the town of Basswood.
Dontnod Entertainment has finally announced a release date for Twin Mirror. The game will launch on December 1 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. As of now, no next-gen version has been announced, but it should arrive soon considering that next-gen consoles should be available by then.
The game mainly focuses on two mechanics, one of which is the Mind Palace. It's a place where players will be able to "discover multiple aspects" of Sam's personality. The second is Double, a character that can only be seen by Sam and who can either help him or harm the whole investigation.
While similar mechanics have been implemented in the past, the duality of mechanics is what makes it unique. The game seems to have a lot of potential and it will be interesting to see how things go for the game.
Twin Mirror will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store on December 1, 2020.
