Schell Games’ excellent I Expect You To Die is getting a well-deserved sequel and the game’s developer is wooing players with a new trailer and a gameplay demo this month.
Schell Games’ has released a brand new trailer for the recently announced I Expect You To Die 2, and while it’s just a short one, it packs a big punch. A Wil Wheaton-sized punch, in fact, as the former Star Trek actor is taking on the role of international celebrity Jon Juniper and he’ll be joining players on their quest to die a thousand times and maybe stop the evil Zoraxis.
The studio has also announced a release window for I Expect You To Die – summer 2021. So… anytime in the next 50-ish days?
Schell Games has also revealed the game’s opening theme song – a very James Bond-y number performed by Puddles Pity Party. It’s brilliantly suave and fits perfectly with the retro-spy aesthetic of I Expect You To Die 2. Check it out along with the new trailer at the bottom of the page.
“I Expect You To Die 2 builds upon everything our community loved about the first game, and we’re excited to take players on another adventure filled with espionage,” said Jesse Schell, CEO of Schell Games. “Wil and Puddles have been amazing to work with, and their enthusiasm has helped us expand the I Expect You To Die universe in compelling new ways. With Wil Wheaton bringing life to John Juniper, and Puddles’s dynamic performance of the new theme song, we’re confident players will feel immersed in this rich, story-driven evolution of the original game.”
