Two Point Hospital DLC interview: Introducing sandbox mode

The brand manager of Sega Europe speaks about the latest batch of content for their goofy hospital sim


Reviews editor Blake Morse spoke with Craig Laycock, a brand manager at Sega about the recent DLC for Two Point Hospital. A large focal point of this DLC is the brand new sandbox mode where players will be free to experiment and create hilarious scenarios using tools from the main game. Laycock recounts the initial feedback that the team at Sega got after the initial release of Two Point Hospital back in August, “This game’s great, we want to be able to just create whatever we want now.” Which led to the creation of sandbox mode.

In addition, Laycock also tells us about the games formula and shares the story of how Two Point Hospital got its charmingly humorous tone.

      I'm confused, is this paid DLC for sandbox mode or just a patch to the existing game that's free for existing owners? It certainly seems like it's a patch, but DLC is thrown all over this article which usually indicates paid content.

      I bought this the other day but quickly realized that I’d rather scratch my tycoon game itch with Planet Coaster where I still haven’t finished over half of the campaign parks. So I refunded Two Point Hospital and bought Dead Cells on Switch instead, best game purchasing decision in awhile.

      I’ll probably pick this game up again during a sale in the future.
