The Sinking City 2 has been officially revealed

The Sinking City 2 is a semi-open-world survival horror game inspired by the works of horror fiction author H. P. Lovecraft. Developed by Frogwares, the same creators of Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened on Unreal Engine 5, The Sinking City 2 is a sequel to The Sinking City, which was released in June 2019. The Sinking City 2 takes place in the infamous city of Arkham, now plagued by a supernatural flood that has brought decay and Eldritch monsters to its streets.

On March 7, 2024, Frogwares officially revealed the first look at The Sinking City 2 on their YouTube channel and their official website:



In The Sinking City 2, you face numerous eldritch abominations in combat, explore a rotting city as the rising waters change the landscape, and discover what dark mysteries brought you to this forsaken place. The game will feature a new, stand-alone story separate from the one told in the original game. Unlike The Sinking City, which was a detective adventure with horror flavor, the sequel is a full-scale survival horror game with an emphasis on combat and exploration.

Game Features:

  • Fight to Survive: Use an arsenal of 1920s-inspired firearms to fight against Eldritch-inspired admonitions.
  • Explore The Decaying City of Arkham: A semi-open world of decaying mansions, flooded markets and abandoned hospitals. As you progress the flood waters will rise, changing the layout of locations when you return.
  • Find and Use What You Can: Scrounge for limited resources and balance a finite inventory as you decide what to bring and what to leave behind.
  • Choose to Investigate Further: Solve optional puzzles that let you investigate your surroundings deeper to uncover secrets, alternate options, and more lore.
  • A Twisted Lovecraftian Tale: Experience a morally grey and captivating story set around the Lovecraft mythos of cults, mutant creatures and incomprehensible gods.

The developers of The Sinking City 2 also requested help from the community in a post on their website, stating that the war situation in Ukraine is becoming increasingly tense. They have decided to turn to Kickstarter again to create a safety net for the studio, as well as to help secure some additional features for the game:

“At this stage, we have learned and adapted to our reality but the ongoing war adds an ominous layer of uncertainty, and the additional funds will help us deal with potential disruptions on top of helping fund various extra features we would love to implement. Our previous game, Sherlock Holmes The Awakened, was fully developed and released during the war. Through Kickstarter and our supporters, we built ourselves a safety net that saved us more than once. From power cuts as our electrical infrastructure was targeted for months to the need for team members to relocate at very short notice, this financial safety net proved invaluable to us. So we need to do the same now with The Sinking City 2 as this game is vastly bigger and more complex. “ – Wael Amr, CEO, Frogwares

The campaign is expected to be launched in a few months, but for now, fans can sign up to be informed by Kickstarter once the campaign goes live.

The Sinking City 2 is set to be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S in 2025. If you're interested in trying out this Lovecraftian-like experience, we highly recommend using dLcompare's price comparator to preorder The Sinking City 2.
