WATCH: Sega Unveils ‘Two Point Hospital’ Announcement Trailer, The Spiritual Successor To Theme Hospital
Recently, it was revealed that Sega was teasing a mysterious new game with a countdown website, leaving the internet to attempt an explanation for what could await when the clock struck zero. The only clue we were left with was the involvement of developer Two Point Studios, a collective of former Fable series helmers. Since the countdown ended, Sega has finally revealed cause of the hubbub, a new simulation game called Two Point Hospital.
A spiritual successor to the game Theme Hospital, the new Two Point Hospital presents players with a similar premise to the original: run your own hospital and excel in the business of sickness. By hiring staff, ordering medical supplies, and some good ol’ fashioned care, the management sim gives players plenty of means to fight off bizarre and comcal diseases. The upcoming game was announced alongside an appropriately pleasant trailer, which you can view below.
Ever since it released back in 1997, the game Theme Hospital has brought fans a unique and humorous approach to the simulation genre. The game put players in management of a booming hospital with the mission of bringing in as many patients and profits as possible. Two Point Hospital looks to have captured the fun and absurdity of the original, while also giving a modern spin to the 20+ year old game. The promising title by Two Point Studios is slated to release for PC in Fall 2018.
