Twin Mirror follows the story of former investigative journalist Sam Higgs, who returns to his childhood hometown of Basswood, West Virginia for a funeral. What was supposed to be a fleeting visit soon becomes an extended stay. Sam is involved in a mystery and must use his detective skills to find out exactly what happened. The trailer doesn’t reveal much, but it teases the Mind Palace, a place that exists in Sam’s mind where he can revisit and reconstruct the memories of key events to understand that they happened.
If you are not a fan of episodic games, then you are in luck. Unlike Life is Strange and Tell Me Why, Twin Mirror will be available as a full experience from day one. In June, Dontnod said he redesigned the game to “allow players to enjoy this psychological thriller without interruption.”
Twin Mirror will launch on Xbox One on December 1st.
