'Curious Expedition 2' (ALL) Gets PC Date - Trailer

Curious Expedition 2 is an adventure/exploration game that will set sail with a brand-new art style and enhanced gameplay, along with vastly expanded content over its predecessor.

Curious Expedition 2 is the follow-up to the award-winning 19th century expedition simulation.

In a reimagined 1889, during the Paris World’s Fair, an immense discovery has been made: mysterious islands in the Atlantic ocean have begun to appear, only to vanish soon afterwards, as if by magic.

The three great Explorer Clubs of Paris are now funding expeditions to these strange islands in a bid to bring back treasures to the World's Fair. Take on the role of an intrepid explorer, assemble your crew, and discover all manner of unique cultures, flora, fauna, treasures and more. With a timeless art style inspired by the classic Franco-Belgian comics of the 20th century and an arrestingly charming orchestrated soundtrack, Curious Expedition 2 is a pulp adventure storybook come to life.

With no two adventures ever the same, your character and those you recruit are all procedurally-generated with a specific class, but with their own unique look, abilities, strengths and weaknesses. On your adventures, all manner of unforeseen circumstances can positively or negatively impact your progress, so careful resource and sanity management is needed to make it back home with your spoils - and your team! A world of unimaginable wonder and surprise awaits!

It’s time to collect more fame, science and treasure than ever before!

Curious Expedition 2 will be leaving PC (Steam) Early Access and entering into commercial launch on January 28, 2021.

“We are so excited to reveal that Curious Expedition 2 will be out in just two weeks! Creating this game has been quite the journey in itself,” said Johannes Kristmann, Co-Founder at Maschinen-Mensch. “For all you adventurers out there, we wish you good luck on your travels. With a treasure trove of content planned and console versions too, there’s a lot more to come from us in 2021.”
