Deceit 2 Starts the Social Deduction Ritual on PS5 Today

Who can you trust to help you escape?

After bringing the online social deduction horror game Deceit 2 to the Free-to-Play model on Steam, World Makers is excited to announce that the Ritual is now summoned on PlayStation 5! The Xbox Series X|S version of the game will launch very soon and both platforms will maintain feature parity with Steam. Cross-play amongst all versions of the game is available, meaning that there have never been more Terrors, Innocent, and Cursed ones inside the hellish social experiment.

Deceit 2 is a matchmade social deduction horror game where two among you have been Infected. While the Infected do the bidding of the malevolent Game Master, the Innocent must work together to escape the Ritual and deduce who is plotting against them. Suspect someone? Rally your team to initiate the Banishing Ritual. To make things even more chaotic, you can now also play as a third team, the Cursed,  who are solely out for themselves. When it’s time to Banish someone, choose wisely; a false accusation can sow seeds of doubt and turn allies into enemies. Your choices shape the game, making every match a unique battle of wits. Can you outplay the Game Master and escape the Ritual, or will you become another piece in his twisted game?

The recently launched Werewolf DLC, as well as all available content of Deceit 2, is also present in the PS5 version of Deceit 2, and players are able to seamlessly team up with anyone regardless of their platform. The Werewolf DLC includes the Wyrtorn Terror, a werewolf, and the first Terror to be added since the game’s initial launch. It also includes The Chemist role, a neutral Curse that must poison all other members of the group to win the Ritual. The new Project Wurgen map, available to everyone for free, is also here for the console release, and Season One, titled “Humble Beginnings”, kicks off today, bringing a myriad of new skins, loading screens, and more unlockables.
