Hotline Miami 2 Trailer Phones A Friend

Murderfriends and forward rolls

If murder is a merry lark then why, surely it's even better with a chum! Hotline Miami is mostly a dark journey into the night alone without anyone to hold your hand but hey, shhh shhh shhh, it's all okay in the sequel Wrong Number. A new trailer shows your murderman sometimes has a little heavily-armed help, though I couldn't say for certain whether they're an AI buddy (which they appear to be), a co-op pal, or a figment of your imagination.

Even if they're not real and my life is an endless stream of pointless murders, at least I'll get to express that in new ways with some snazzy dual-wielding action and icy hot stunts. Rolling is one of my true joys in video games and I will always overuse it in any game which allows me to. If it turns out I can kill people with rolls in Hotline Miami 2, even if it takes a dozen hits, I will set myself the most awkward and frustrating challenge.

The game's due on Windows, Mac, and Linux some time from July to September.
