The cult sequel Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is now available on PC. Announced at the Future Games Show, the game is available on Steam and currently has a launch discount to boot.
The launch discount brings it down to $28 from a regular price of $40. That price will be available until June 18. The Steam page notes that a controller is required as keyboard and mouse control is not supported. It also looks like this version won’t work on Steam Deck for a while.
The Switch version had notoriously poor performance and it remains to be seen if this PC port (or future updates and mods) will smooth it out. The Steam announcement notes that this version includes technical improvements. These include unspecified higher resolutions and performance improvements, in addition to faster loading times. You can check out the very modest system specs below.
Deadly Premonition 2 launched almost a year ago on Nintendo Switch, in July 2021. And while it was the highly anticipated follow-up to a cult classic, the reception hasn’t exactly been rosy. It received a mixed reception on GameSpot sister site Metacritic with a current metascore of 56.
“If you can get past its achievements, there are glimpses of a good story here and moments that make it a worthy installment in the Francis Zach Morgan saga,” wrote Kurt Indovina in GameSpot’s Deadly Premonition 2 review. “But ultimately Deadly Premonition 2 lacks the emotional resonance found in the first game. It’s a different brew of coffee than your favorite roaster, but one that’s more bitter than you probably hoped.”
