Taking cues from party games like Overcooked, Moving Out was a big hit when it released in 2020. Now the Aussie-developed game is receiving a sequel, Moving Out 2, which was revealed this morning at Gamescom.
The original Moving Out was a couch co-op game where you have to pack up and move house as quickly as possible, with physics and your friends causing chaos while you do it. The sequel is set to introduce online co-operative play (a feature that was sorely missing from the first game), along with cross-play. It will feature a cast of bizarre unlockable characters across more than 50 new levels and challenges.
Check out the key features from Moving Out 2 below, according to the press release:
- Co-op Continued: Players can either take on Moving Out 2 solo, or with friends (or enemies) in both couch and cross-play enabled online co-op.
- Location, location, location: 50+ new levels offer up interesting and hazardous challenges for the F.A.R.Ts to pit their moving prowess against.
- Physics: Gravity is both a cruel mistress and a F.A.R.T’s best friend; use it to get items to where they need to go faster… but maybe not in one piece.
- Crazy characters: Featuring a whole new host of smooth movers, Moving Out 2 showcases entirely new characters that will both enchant and horrify.
- Assist mode: Movers of all abilities are welcome in Packmore; with Assist Mode, the possibilities (and fun) are endless, and inclusive!
In our original review of Moving Out, we said: “Moving Out is a great time to spend with friends. It evokes the chaotic energy that is ever-present in cooperative games, while also lending itself to more strategic play if you and your group of friends work well together. Its willingness to include extra accessibility features goes a long way in making this game more open to all kinds of players, at various skill levels – ensuring the core experience can be enjoyed at its most fun and engaging by all.”
Moving Out 2 is supported by VicScreen through the Victorian Screen Incentive (VSI), and will be releasing sometime in 2023 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Switch and PC.
