I Expect You to Die 2: The Spy and the Liar is the follow-up to the cartoony VR game that puts you in the role of a James Bond-like spy right as they are trapped in near-certain doom. I Expect You to Die 2 was announced back in January 2021 for PSVR, Steam VR, and Oculus Quest headsets. The Upload VR Showcase 2021 debuted a new trailer with a release window set for this summer.
VR has the ability to instantly transport anyone to any imaginable situation and being a debonair spy caught in the clutches of their arch-nemesis is one of the more original premises for a game. I Expect You to Die puts players in control of a telekinetic secret agent set on surviving through immersive locations while beset by deadly traps. The VR-exclusive title received incredibly positive feedback and reviews so Schell Games did what any prudent developer would do and got to work on I Expect You to Die 2. Subtitled, The Spy and the Liar, this recently announced sequel takes things from stirred to shaken with an in-depth story and new puzzles.
Take a look at the official dossier from the game's Steam page:
The encore to I Expect You To Die is here...
Welcome back, Agent! We’ve been expecting you. For now, Zoraxis believes you are dead. To capitalize on this moment, we are sending you deep undercover to explore some diabolical intelligence the Agency has received regarding Zoraxis’ move for world domination. Agent, we need you to
- Embark on new missions to figure out exactly what Zoraxis is up to
- Use your elite spy skills and telekinetic power to retrieve the intelligence the Agency needs to spoil Dr. Zor’s plans
- Not die
I Expect You to Die 2: The Spy and the Liar was announced near the beginning of 2021 in January but got an update today in the form of a release window. Shown in a trailer during the Upload VR 2021 Showcase, I Expect You to Die 2 is now planned for a summer 2021 release on Steam VR, PSVR, and Oculus Quest headsets. Shacknews has more reveals and games covered at the Upload VR 2021 Showcase as well as everything you can shake a stick at coming out of E3 2021.
