    • The mocap actors for the game only just start work.
      This prove the game is still in the very early stage of development.
      So the early trailer for part 2 is likely be in 2022 and the release date is likely 2023-2024.

    • >>[347]
      If you complete the game and go to Chapter 17 with Chapter Select, you will be able to find Chadley near the start of the chapter and access all the VR missions with any three characters of your choice. Hope this helps!
