Deceit 2 Road to Full Launch

Hello Deceit 2 Community! Since our Steam-only launch in September, Deceit 2 will launch on console with a load of improvements.

Deceit 2 is not just any game; it’s a heart-pounding arena of social deception, strategy, action and the ever-enticing question of whom to trust. A number of improvements has been made across the board in advance of our console launch,.


Deceit 2 will be a premature PC launc with a load of optimisation-focussed updates. It has been already achieved a roughly 200% performance increase since its initial launch. These improvements translate to smoother, more dynamic gameplay and make Deceit 2 accessible to even more players with varying hardware capabilities. It’s enhanced the lighting, reworked character models and animations, and optimised gameplay code.

User Experience

The entire graphical style surrounding Deceit 2 is undergoing a rework to be more aesthetically pleasing and consistent. This new style will roll out across the game’s UI in the coming months, as well as on the website and other media. It will adhere to a ritual-esque chalk line style, emphasising the magical-fantasy aspects of the game.

User experience remains at the heart of our ongoing improvements.  Deceit 2 has been worked diligently to be as user-friendly as possible. The focus has been on a more intuitive UI that simplifies navigation and enriches your in-game experience. Expect responsive gameplay mechanics, easier access to vital information, and an overall smoother, more enjoyable journey from login to leaderboard.

It has elevating players’ auditory experience as well, with line trace-based occlusion and improved implementation of convolution and algorithmic reverbs for a more immersive sound environment. All of this means that you should notice big improvements to the sound!

Furthermore, it has been enhanced the flow throughout the game. Key moments like the intro sequence, activating weak points, voting cinematic, banishing circle, and end-of-game sequence will be updated for clarity and intent. This community-driven approach will continue, so keep your comments coming—even if they’re brutal.
