There’s never been a better time to grab a stethoscope and start building your very own healthcare empire!

Head to the Pointy Mountains with regional notoriety, Bartholomew F Yeti, in the Bigfoot expansion, glow a sterilised footpath through the humid islands with Wiggy Silverbottom in Pebberley Island, or take on the latest and greatest challenges in the two newest stretches to touch consoles: Close Encounters and Off the Grid.

We know, we know …” Aliens in a hospital tournament ?!”,” eco-warrior politicians in a hospital game !? ” It’s probably fair to say you might have some questions before you jump in to solve inscrutable foreigner plots, or help the Mayor see the province lettuce again … for the first time. So why not grab a packet of the cheesiest gubbins you can find and put your feet up although some of our lovely decorators, Harry Puttock and Sam Webley talk you through the new adventures that await you in our beloved little Two Point County.

Close meetings

Harry Puttock: Alien plots might voice a little ” out there” for a hospital sim game, but we really wanted to go for something a little more fantastical and push the boat out, which is exactly what we did for Close Encounters. The basis of the idea came from our Creative Director, Gary Carr after watching far too many conspiracy TV depicts on Roswell, Area 51 and the like.

Sam Webley: Close Encounters has three brand new fields: there’s Goldpan, a small town where rumours of a UFO crash landing began, Camouflage Falls, a town that doesn’t really exist, residence a big armed locate, and Chasm 24, a secret government facility. The stages actually do go from strange happenings to full-blown government cover-ups as you get deeper and deeper into this crazy conspiracy.

Harry: Throughout the DLC you’ll be encountering lots of different space-themed afflictions. My personal beloved being Lack of Humanity, where you’re actually turning these aliens into beings so they can integrate with society in Two Point County. It’s quite a nice twist, because the DLC starts by reveal these aliens that are trying to infiltrate your hospitals, and following the adjournment of it you’re helping them stay here rather than routing them dwelling.

Sam: You can’t talk about ailments in Close Encounters without mentioning Bowhine though. Cases with this illness have become unenamoured with being human, opting to spend their time in domains pretending to be cows. You need to treat them before they get abducted by immigrants! I’m not saying you should intentionally not treat them … but it’s pretty recreation to watch a UFO snatch someone dressed up as a cow.

Harry: There are some really cool new gameplay car-mechanics in this DLC as well, like the Robo-Janitors. In Chasm 24( the game’s 24 th grade, did anybody get that …?) you’ll need your Robo-Janitors to maintain large-hearted mechanical stabilisers that frustrate earthquakes and other bad things from had taken place in your hospitals. A mint of sci-fi technology seems very impressive, but you don’t always get a great sense of what it does. Sure, it has lots of daybreaks, and an enormous button, but what’s it for? The Robo-Janitors are high-tech, but also immensely practical. Every Robo-Janitor has a unique name. My favourite is Sweepy Leroux. The finest brooms-man in Two Point County.

Sam: Don’t forget the actual aliens themselves. Responsibility of your goal in Goldpan is to find aliens trying to infiltrate your hospital. You might notice cases acting strangely, perhaps they’ve not gone to reception or maybe they’re rummaging through bins( because we all know real-life foreigners do that … right ?), or their cloaking maneuver glitches a little. If you saw something like that, you’ll need to send the ” case ” home to uncover the immigrant hiding in plain sight. It might seem a bit mean, but if they vanish unnoticed, it can start to mess with your hospitals.

Off the Grid

In Two Point County, voter study has repeatedly suggested that the public’s number one concern is with the environmental issues. To stick her neighbourhood in role … ahem, we convey, to support the green-minded community, Two Point County’s ever-present mayor, Tabitha Windsock, founded the Department of Green Things. She recently discovered it pays to go light-green in this time of poverty-stricken voter polling, so she goes on a campaign trail to tell the world she’ll render healthcare for everyone participating in her initiative because frankly…the dead can’t vote.

Sam: The core theme for Off the Grid was environmentalism. The first rank, Wanderoff, is almost like a big hippy-commune and focuses on health and wellbeing of staff, patients, and your hospice attractiveness to generate money. The second grade, Old Newpoint, is a little town where people have opted for an older way of life, to the point where they’ll knock down old constructs and construct newer ones to realize them glance older. In Old Newpoint you’ll change your own food, which keeps stress on your hospital’s layout and length, as the food and spray will require a lot of dedicated opening in your hospitals. The final height, Windsock, is a monstrous eco-city that the Mayor has, unusually humbly, constructed exercising tax-payer’s money. Windsock City doesn’t rely on the usual means of power. Instead, you’ll need to build light-green vigor machines to stay switched-on and self-sufficient. Each of your light-green exertion machines, whether it’s a wind turbine, solar panel or hydro-dam, will increase the superpower capability of the hospital.

Harry: I’m a big fan of the illnesses in Off the Grid, they’re all highly earthy! A lot of camping and nature-based afflictions. I like Woodworms, where sufferers look like little wooden marionettes, the medicine for this is essentially being chewed and spat out by a giant whale. There’s Roadstool, Bodily Druids, Stumble Bum and my personal favourite, Chocolate Shorts. Forgive the expression, but I was sitting on Chocolate Shorts for about a year before finagling to get it into the game.

Sam: It’s all about proceeding lettuce in Off the Grid. Ignoring that could lead to penalties. So, ever remember to place lots of recycling buckets, stretch your own food in all levels and situate lots of greenery around the hospitals, otherwise you might find yourself losing money when labour inspectors comes your nature!

We’re super evoked for you to jump in and start house your very own healthcare empire, so why would you waiting for! The Two Point Hospital: Jumbo Edition is out today on PlayStation 4.
