Moving Out 2 appeared at Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022 with a short and sweet trailer to show off what it’s all about. It’s a co-op moving sim full of antics and ridiculous situations which make for a good way to unwind. The developers even teased a release window at last, with 2023 being the target.
It’s the latest in the ever-growing genre about doing mundane stuff, but poorly. Moving Out 2 expands on the original’s unique idea that moving is like a complicated and tiring puzzle.
The sequel lets you step back into the shoes of a Furniture Arrangement and Relocation Technician (F.A.R.T.), but this time with the internet. You can play with 1-4 players in either local co-op or crossplay online. This feature is sure to come in handy when you deign to grace the console plebs with your presence.
Moving Out 2 new characters and features
Moving Out 2 promises to deliver 50+ new levels with “interesting and hazardous challenges,” which sounds like a healthy amount of content. In addition, the sequel looks to place a greater emphasis on physics, letting you throw objects to get them to where you need them faster.
A slew of new characters look to be debuting in Moving Out 2 as well that should dazzle and delight players. The trailer shows off a variety of new environmental hazards and potentially AI helper bots. They seem to be able to move items and the players around the map.
Family friendly co-op games seem to have been in demand lately. With this and From Space, that demand looks to be getting met. And like From Space, this looks to be another title which will pair well with a Steam Deck.
Unfortunately, as mentioned earlier, there is no concrete release date for Moving Out 2, but 2023 isn’t too far off. If we are lucky, the release will be closer to Q1 than Q4. You can keep up with development updates on the game’s official website.
