Budget Cuts 2: Mission Insolvency is slated to arrive December 12th on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Valve Index. Although we got a chance to go hands-on with an early level of Budget Cuts 2 at Gamescom this year, which revealed a new crossbow to the series, the official launch trailer has dropped, and now we know a bit more about how the game has changed.
There’s a few new gadgets seen in the trailer, namely some sort of X-ray vision mod for your seeing glass attachment, grenades, and if the end of the trailer tells us anything, there’s also melee. In the first game, you could technically stab a guard-bot, but that really wasn’t the knife’s main function.
If anything, the sequel looks to include more opportunity for what may be less-than-stealthy combat too, as loads of the guard robots appear to assault you head on.
Here’s what Neat Corporation says about Budget Cuts 2:
TransCorp is about to optimize humanity out of existence, and you must find a way into the belly of the beast to stop their vicious budget cuts. Fight your way through a multitude of new environments and robotic enemies; find new tools and allies along the way. Put an end to the notion of ultimate efficiency before it puts an end to us. Budget Cuts 2 is the conclusion of the adventure you started in Budget Cuts, but is also a self-contained game and easy to get into from a new player’s perspective.
