I absolutely LOVED Two Point Hospital — the triumphant return of the team behind games like Theme Hospital, Fable, and Black & White. Well, the team is ready to bring that magic to a whole new game, freshly announced at the Summer Game Fest. Welcome to Two Point Campus. Let’s hit the books and find out a little more:
In Two Point Campus, you’ll be tasked with building and running your very own campus environment, where the decisions you make will shape the lives of the students you enrol and the staff you hire. For the first time, build in the great outdoors as you develop your very own campus grounds, buildings, and surroundings. Lay down dorms, pathways, hedgerows and more with new easy-to-use creative tools. The only limit is your imagination (and your in-game bank balance).
The fun doesn’t stop there! The people of Two Point County have slightly different priorities when it comes to education, meaning your students get to enjoy a wide range of hilariously unusual courses such as Knight School, where they’ll learn jousting and practise the noble art of chivalry. The less martially inclined can hone their skills in Gastronomy, and collaborate on all sorts of oversized culinary delights, like gigantic pizzas and equally humongous pies.
However, it’s not all about serious education – you’ll also need to nurture your students, explore their personalities, and fulfil all their wants and needs! Surround them with friends, help them develop relationships and make sure they balance everyday schoolwork with extracurricular delights like gigs, societies, and sports. Academia has never been more appealing!
“We hope that the incredible Two Point community will love all the new creative freedom that Two Point Campus will bring and that new players will be intrigued by its setting and the quirky world we’re trying to build, packed with our trademark humour and charm”, said Gary Carr, Co-founder and Creative Director at Two Point Studios.
Like Two Point Hospital, Two Point Campus is a charming, accessible, and deep management sim but now in a brand new setting. For more information about Two Point Campus head to www.twopointcampus.com, where you can also sign up for County Pass, which gives you a free coveted in-game item at launch.
You know I’m all in for these kinds of games, so stay tuned as we find out more details. In the meantime, enjoy the new trailer, and we’ll see you in the quad!
Two Point Campus is headed to Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC in 2022.
