Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe has revealed two new gameplay features for Twin Mirror, the episodic game that's coming in 2019 to PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but that's not all, as we also have a brand new trailer and plenty of screens to show us more of the psychological thriller.
"Twin Mirror, lets players take on the role of Sam, an investigative journalist returning home to bury an old friend. But, as Sam wakes up in his motel room with a blood-stained shirt and no memory of the night before he must embark on a thrilling investigation, and make a series of impactful choices to discover the truth," the official description reads.
Gamescom revealed to us that Sam has a Mind Palace, which Sam created to access and recreate memories from the past as well as imagine possible scenarios. Moving between the real world and the Mind Palace will be key to solving the mysteries of the game, and unravel events in Sam's own memory.
Another mechanic is called The Double, which is Sam's inner voice that manifests itself as a witty and sophisticated version of himself. Again, this side of Sam is just one more piece to the mystery though, and you'll have to decide whether to trust or ignore this other half.
"We are very excited to reveal two of our major gameplay features for Twin Mirror here at Gamescom," said Fabrice Cambounet, Senior Producer for Twin Mirror. "We believe this is a good insight into our unique narrative approach, having gameplay features intertwined within the story we want to tell. We can't wait for the players to uncover the secrets hidden in Twin Mirror with the first episode in 2019!"
You can watch the trailer down below, as well as the new screens. Is Twin Mirror reeling you in with its mysteries?
