Pre-Order Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, Get Psychonauts for Free

February 8, 2017 Written by Jason Dunning

Double Fine has announced that anyone who pre-orders Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin for PlayStation VR will receive a free copy of Psychonauts for PlayStation 4. Additionally, PlayStation Plus members who pre-order will get 10% off Rhombus of Ruin’s $19.99 USD price.

The pre-order is currently only up on the North American PlayStation Store, but Double Fine says the same deal will hit the European PlayStation Store soon.

“This is not Psychonauts 2, it’s a standalone chapter of the Psychonauts saga: a mind-bending adventure puzzle game made from the ground up for VR that will chronicle the events between the first Psychonauts and its forthcoming sequel,” the description says.

In response to a question on the PlayStation Blog, Double Fine Community Manager James Spafford said it takes around three hours to beat Rhombus of Ruin.

The next game in the series, Psychonauts 2, is currently slated for a Q3 2018 release. In the most recent Fig update, Double Fine revealed that it isn’t in full production yet:

As we mentioned, we’re still not quite into full production yet, but after lots of experimentation and design meetings we know a lot more about the game – what it should look like, how we’ll build it, how it feels to control Raz, what new moves and powers you’ll have, and more! We’ve been building this all out into a massive schedule that will serve as our road map for production.

A big part of this has been reworking and refining the entire story and getting into more detail, including all the new characters you’ll meet and what surreal mental landscapes you’ll visit. That last part especially has involved whittling down hundreds of ideas that we’d love to build and it’s been wonderful to have the time to consider this stuff carefully.

Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin releases on February 21.
