The first DLC expansion for the critically acclaimed puzzle game by Croteam and Devolver Digital finally releases today complete with a launch trailer. Road to Gehenna is said to host “Some of the most advanced and challenging puzzles yet” in The Talos Principle. From the content description, The Talos Principle expansion contains four episodes to explore the simulation as a new (named) character of Uriel.
“The Talos Principle: Road to Gehenna follows the narrative of Uriel, Elohim’s messenger, as he explores a strange, hidden part of the simulation on a mission of mercy and redemption in an attempt to free the souls of the damned at all costs.”
In addition, to add incentive to purchase, The Talos Principle: Road to Gehenna DLC discounts 10% off the $14.99 price ($13.49) for its first week on the market ending on July 30th.
The voiceover in the launch trailer reads as follows: “Uriel, awaken. The end of days is upon us. The process is complete as it should be, but, Uriel, I have made mistakes. What I ask of you, my beloved messenger, is a terrible sacrifice: undo my mistake. Please, save them.”
As for the game, some questions crop up again pertaining to the story and said “Advanced” challenges. Will we see new usuable objects in the expansion? Will we obey or disobey our voice in the sky again? And why, oh God why, does first-person platforming still exist?
