Deceit 2 is a multiplayer survival horror game with an emphasis on social interaction, and it’s coming to PS5 and PS4 in 2023.
The easiest way to describe Deceit 2 is that it’s essentially Among Us but with significantly more violence. The aim of this asymmetric game is to find who amongst your pals is the Infected Terror and to try and stop them from sacrificing their erstwhile allies to some kind of dark god.
Infected players seek to tear down the veil of reality by activating Blood Altars, and if successful, will transport all players to the In-Between, a nightmarish parallel dimension where the Infected will gain powerful new abilities.
The original Deceit was released in 2017 to positive reception and was part of a swathe of games that were experimenting with the type of social gameplay that would become best encapsulated by Among Us and Dead by Daylight. Deceit 2 expands on the mechanics of its predecessor and looks like it could be a blast to play with friends.
