Co-op puzzle platformer sequel Unravel Two is out now on PS4, following surprise E3 reveal

Check out first gameplay details for the follow-up to the 2016 sleeper hit

“The yarn represents love and the bonds that we make, and it unravels because that’s what happens when we’re separated from what we love.” That’s what Creative Director Martin Sahlin told the world when Unravel first debuted, and it’s still the truth in Unravel Two. But now those old bonds have been broken, and you need to weave new ones. Thankfully, you have a friend by your side to help.

In Unravel Two, you play as two Yarnys (tiny magical creatures made of yarn and joined by a thread) in a puzzle-platforming adventure. Run, jump, swing, and solve your way through a world of natural beauty and shadowy dangers, either on your own or with a friend in local co-op.

The ties that bind

Your job is chase a mysterious “spark”- one that two young people dearly need. Yarnys are protectors and helpers that guide the people they’re connected to, and your journey takes you deep into their most important memories. These two only have each other (just like their Yarny guardians) and as you explore the world, you build the bond that holds them together.

Their tale takes you through a variety of environments, from a gorgeous Scandinavian-inspired wilderness to urban rooftops and construction sites. Unravel Two’s story is told wordlessly as you learn what’s happened to your humans, and why they need your help. While you’ll see plenty of signs in Swedish, we want this story to speak the heart, regardless of language.

Swing into action (and danger)

The bond between Yarnys changes the way you play in a tangible way. In Unravel Two, you move through the world by solving physics-based puzzles that rely on a liberal use of yarn.

One Yarny can act as an anchor while the other uses their shared yarn to swing across a perilous gap. Yarn bridges turn into springing platforms that help the Yarnys reach new heights. And a yarn lasso is great for pulling objects down from above – that’s an easy way to turn a seesaw into a catapult.

Unravel Two also brings a faster, more energetic feel to the series: these Yarnys can use their thread to swing through the air with the greatest of ease, crossing huge areas without touching the ground. They can also jump up walls and swim for short periods of time, so they’re able to move around the world quickly and without fear.

Until monsters show up, that is. Each environment offers its share of challenges – falling rocks, scorching machine parts, hungry birds – but the most frightening of all are creeping shadow creatures that dissolve any Yarny they touch. You have to use all of your skills to dodge, outrun, and escape them throughout your journey.

Make it your own

Along the way, you’ll stumble on unique challenge maps meant to test your mind and reflexes even more than the main game. Other Yarnys are trapped in these levels, and by completing each challenge you can free them.

Rescuing Yarnys earns you new patterns that you can use to customize your main characters. Visit the “Appearance” tab on the menu screen anytime to try out different heads, eyes, bodies, and colors of yarn – everyone has a Yarny, and you can use Unravel Two to create yours.

Unravel Two is available now on PlayStation 4. We’re excited to share this game with you, and can’t wait to watch you chase the spark of adventure.

Loved the first episode, but will wait for a sale.

For once I don’t think Sony has any say in the matter, but no discount on launch day is a poor move for such a niche title.

Weirdly, still not available in Norway…

It’s in Sweden, Denmark, Finland — even UAE — but not in Norway! This is a first for me! Maybe the game is [DELETED]?

Yeah, I’ve got the same problem. They haven’t updated the Norwegian PS Store for some reason…

I’m gonna try the full version on EA Access for free. The first 10 hours is free btw. :)

NFS Payback Full game were just added there too.

What an emotional rollercoaster, much like the first Unravel game. First my heart nearly jumped out of my chest at the surprise news of an Unravel sequel, and then it fell to the pit of my stomach as I realised it’s not available on the Norwegian store. What gives? :'(

Da jeg chattet med EA i dag morges, så sa de at spillet er gjort tilgjengelig for det norske markedet fra EA sin side — det er PlayStation Norge som har valgt å ikke publisere det.

Same happened to Horizon Chase Turbo, when released it was delayed 1-2 weeks ONLY in the Norwegian PSN Store. That sucks, Let’s get access to Unravel Two now!
