Two Point Studios and SEGA just announced the next expansion for their amusing hospital building sim with Two Point Hospital: Close Encounters.

It's coming soon too! Their plan is to release it on August 29th next week. This will be the third expansion following on from Bigfoot and Pebberley Island. Two Point Hospital is already quite weird but this is really…out there. It will be adding in 3 new hospitals full of patients to cure, 34 new illnesses although they say only 11 of these are new visually along with a promise of "new" gameplay, new music and so on.

It will be available from Humble Store and Steam with both stores having it up for pre-order right now.

Will you be picking up a copy? After spending quite a lot of hours with it, I likely will be. Despite feeling a little repetitive at times, Two Point Hospital feels like a worthy successor to Theme Hospital.

I’ve played a few levels of the main game and it’s ok but very repetitive and a bit tedious, with little or no challenge for the first few levels (I did end up losing at the fourth or thifth one). So buying DLCs for this game is not on my radar!

I pre-ordered this DLC. It is a great game, and I have completed all achievements in the base game and the first two DLCs.
