Theme Hospital successor 'Two Point Hospital' for PC reveals new illnesses and locations

Recently, Sega and Two Point Studios announced a hilarious Theme Hospital successor called Two Point Hospital. While the announcement trailer was quirky and featured a fictitious disease known as "Light-Headedness", it didn't give us a taste of the gameplay. That changed today because the companies released a new gameplay trailer showing off some of the more diverse hospitals and the different challenges they present.

The video also features a couple of new illnesses and treatments. This scenario is focused on Mitton University, a strange and wonderful teaching hospital in the north of Two Point County. Unfortunately, Mitton University is afflicted with a case of the paranormal. In this challenging level, players won't be able to hire any senior doctors. Instead, they'll have to bring their own juniors through the ranks by building training rooms.

Two Point Hospital isn't just about treating lightbulbs, it involves managing a hospital and taking care of patients with bizarre ailments. The game, from the creators of Theme Hospital, is set to be a return to one of gaming's most loved simulator genres. Two Point Hospital draws on the experience of some the gaming industry's most experienced and successful developers who, between them, have worked on titles like Black and White, Fable, and Theme Park.

The hospital environment is quite chaotic and the gameplay captures that. Not only do you have to manage patients receiving treatments, but factors like wait times and how other people will be affected by an out-of-control situation must be considered.

Sega says that Two Point Hospital is coming to PC in late 2018. Hopefully the game will live up to expectations. From what we've seen so far, Two Point Hospital's focus on humor is the right approach to tackling a hospital environment.
