If you were a fan of Theme Hospital back in the day and now only game on a console, then you would have missed out on the fantastic Two Point Hospital, a spiritual successor to Theme Hospital released on 30 August last year exclusively on PC. Now, eleven months later, SEGA has announced that Two Point Hospital will be coming to consoles later this year.
This is some very exciting news even for someone like me who has played the game to death on PC already but want to just sit back and play it on PS4 as well. The game will be coming to PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, both digitally and in a physical version. No specific release date has been revealed but we know it is coming this year.
The hospital management sim packed with humour on consoles will feature a quick and precise control scheme for consoles that was built from the ground up by the developers. This is of great importance as sometimes, a simply port just doesn’t work well, especially in top-down games where you need to move quickly and click on multiple objects in an emergency situation. Further, Two Point Hospital on console will have both the game’s expansions.
