What you need to know
- Two Point Hospital is a delightful hospital management simulator that combines satisfying mechanics with quirky humor.
- The game has successfully translated to consoles, but has a ton of additional expansions and content packs on PC.
- Now, Two Point Studios is releasing Two Point Hospital JUMBO Edition, which bundles all of this content into one game.
- The JUMBO Edition will be available on Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch starting March 5, 2021.
Two Point Hospital is the successful revival of the hospital management sim genre, and combines wonderful humor with clever and engaging mechanics to create an overall fantastic game. Unlike some other games in similar genres, Two Point Hospital also translated well to consoles like Xbox, PlayStation, and the Switch. While the base game still contains plenty to do, Two Point Hospital has been missing some of the expansions and content packs that is present on PC. Two Point Studios is fixing this problem with Two Point Hospital JUMBO Edition.
Two Point Hospital JUMBO Edition bundles the base game (which is already included through Xbox Game Pass) with four expansions and two content packs. This means new areas in which to build a fully functioning hospital, new illnesses to cure and cures to discover, and two content packs filled with items for your hospitals. The JUMBO Edition will include:
- Bigfoot. Build a hospital in the snowy Pointy Mountains, and cure a variety of frozen illnesses with the help of Mr. Yeti.
- Pebberley Island. Trade frozen for tropical at Pebberley Reef, where your hospital is looking for the secret to eternal youth.
- Close Encounters. This expansion trades real-world biomes for secret facilities, government secrets, and the possibility of alien life.
- Off the Grid. Take your hospital green and make it eco-friendly, but watch out for a variety of new illnesses in this clean energy expansion.
- Retro Items Pack. 26 retro-themed items for your hospital.
- Exhibition Items Pack. An art-themed pack for your hospital.
Two Point Hospital JUMBO Edition launches on Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch on March 5, 2021. Players will be able to buy the JUMBO Edition to gain access to all of this content, or buy each pack separately if they desire. If you haven't tried Two Point Hospital yet, it's currently available through Xbox Game Pass, making it easy to jump in and build your hospital.
All of these expansions will require some additional space, so make sure you're stocked up with one of the Best SSDs for Xbox Series X|S.

This is how it goes nowadays. You buy an indie game on PC. Support the little-to-mid fella, buying a game you like, because it's a fun game, a nice idea, and basically a likeable game that's not expensive. Might even buy a DLC or two, because remember, you're supporting the little-to-mid fella with their small game. That game suddenly gets mid-to-big. At least enough. A lot of people who buy indie games on PC have done the same as you, even praised it and stuck with it, supporting it. After all, this is what made the game go from probably unknown to mid-to-big. Next step for the now definitely mid-to-slightly-higher fella: Expand its platforms. Console is the new promised land. Especially that magical land of Switch. Fertile grounds, green pastures. But not just that. Could be also the big consoles. Playing the big leagues now, ex-little-fella! What happens? Joe, Switch owner, gets to buy the new ultra-packed version of the little game you love. It has all the DLCs, new graphics and options, probably exclusive features, and it's wonderful. The new best way to play the game. What's the problem then? You. You bought the little game on PC ages ago when nobody knew it, loved it, supported it. But you're already a thing of the past. You've already done your part and are left behind. So, no new version for you non-console peasant, no upgrade to bundled version, no new graphics, no new features, and certainly no console exclusive content for you. This happens over and over in the industry. Devs and publishers get big with a game that was small, and forget about how they got big. PC gamers are screwed and left behind, in favor for the new darling platform. For an example, you can look pretty much everywhere, but look no further than Overcooked.
What are you talking about? This edition combines all the expansions currently available on PC. Consoles aren't getting extra content that PC doesn't have. Read the effing article.
In this particular case consoles are getting all the content available for PC for the same price. I don't care for your attitude, by the way, no need to talk that "effin'" way to nobody. You wouldn't talk like that to my face.
Actually the game and it's expansions are significantly cheaper on PC. And yeah I would, I type how I talk.
