■ Two Cases, One Mystery

Boston, 2019. FBI Special Agents Aaliyah Davis and Simon Jones, looking into a case long-thought solved, find themselves on the doorstep of a person of interest. Reports of a few missing bodies wouldn’t normally interest the FBI, but something about this case just doesn’t add up.

Despite having few leads to go on, the pair hope asking this person the right questions about the ‘red tree’ might get them somewhere. But as the saying goes, be careful what you wish for—some cases are best left closed…

Louisiana, 2005. A series of strange murders has blighted the backwater town of Le Carré and the FBI sends one of its young recruits, Special Agent Francis York Morgan, to investigate. Befriended by the sheriff’s daughter, who seems older than her years, the two soon set out together to find the truth.

On the surface, the peaceful town and its kind residents seem harmless enough. But a darkness grows beneath and, as casualties mount up, Special Agent Morgan must find those responsible before it swallows him too…

Francis York Morgan

Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise

Great insight, exceptional athleticism and a knack for profiling serve Special Agent Morgan well at the FBI, though his eccentricity causes others to question his skills. Thankfully, his detachment from the real world means even the most horrifying crime scenes are just another puzzle for him to solve.

Patricia Woods

Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise

Lives in Le Carré with her father, the local sheriff. Although young, she’s resourceful and acts far older than she actually is. Her adult-like speech and lack of fear impresses Special Agent Morgan, and she quickly names herself his partner in the investigation of the town’s ongoing murders.

Aaliyah Davis

Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise

An FBI investigator with a keen eye for observation, Special Agent Davis is considered highly-skilled among her peers. Unfortunately, she can also come across as rude and competitive during questioning. She believes her current case hides an unsolved secret and maybe something worse…

Simon Jones

Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise

Don’t let the exterior fool you: despite looking more than a little lazy, Special Agent Jones was once feared at the FBI as an investigative demon. He’s thoughtful, highly capable and a powerful presence who can corner any suspect with sharp questioning when necessary.

■ Your Future is Your Past

Set both nine years after and five years before the original game, Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise features not one, but two protagonists. Lead them to discover an astonishing truth that will send both to the brink of madness.

In the past, help Special Agent Morgan investigate a spate of brutal murders. Explore Le Carré on foot or via skateboard, interact with its citizens, uncover clues and dabble in voodoo to discover the darker side of this seemingly peaceful town…

■ Time to Spare

The town of Le Carré offers more than just a case for Special Agent Morgan to solve. From your base at the Casa Pineapple hotel, pick up requests from the locals that can bolster your hunt for the killer.

Alternatively, spend time enjoying some of the local pastimes:

  • Bowling: Head to Bar Alexus and bowl a few frames down the alley. A perfect score awaits…
  • Skipping Rocks: Embrace the calm and see how far you can skim stones across the water.
  • Bayou River Ride: Take a trip down the river and practice your shooting skills with targets (or alligators!).
  • Skateboarding: As well as using it to get around town, try out your skateboard skills against the clock.
