The sequel to last year’s stunning and wicked Hotline Miami now has a brand new subname and teaser trailer. It’s called Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, and the fresh trailer is just as intense as one would expect from the follow-up to the original.
Here’s the full description as it appears on the video’s YouTube page:
A brutal conclusion to the gruesome saga, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number follows the escalating level of violence through multiple factions born from the events of the original game and driven by uncertain motivations. Step into the murderous mind of several distinct characters – each with their own motivations and methods of execution — as storylines intersect and reality slips away into a haze of neon and carnage. Blistering combat, an unmistakable visual style, and a powerfully intense soundtrack will once again push you to the limit and questioning your own thirst for blood.
Coming to PC, Mac, and Linux in 2013. Maybe.
I think “brutal” is a great word for this franchise. Below the arcadey play, the twisted storyline and the stupendous soundtrack is this sense of extreme brutality in every kill and hit. Hotline Miami is one of the most brutal games I’ve ever played, and it looks like developer Dennaton is at it again.
As the description above indicates, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number will hit the PC, Mac and Linux platforms in 2013. Maybe.
