Powered by Unreal Engine 5, Deceit 2 is touted as “an evolution for asymmetric horror gameplay”, feature a massive overhaul of gameplay mechanics. Combat will feature new items and abilities to empower the innocents as they defend themselves against the Infected, as well as interactive maps that create more intense chases.

Player count has been upgraded to nine players, offering more opportunities for strategy, but also more chances that someone might be the Infected. Players will also be able to trade with a new character known as “The Peddler” for weapons, items, and clues on Infected players.
