Psychonauts 2 is no doubt an interesting game in the Psychonauts series, but it is not as perfect as many fans would love it to be. One of the reasons for this is the scarce availability of collectibles and secret areas. This makes the game seem short to most players, added to the fact that there is no quick way to replay an already played level.
All these considered, there are ways you can actually go back to replay some levels so as to get some collectibles you must have missed, or you can start the game anew as well. In this article, we will walk you through how to start a new game in Psychonauts 2 or replay some levels in the game. Before we launch at those steps to take, let’s have a brief but concise overview of the game.
Psychonauts 2 is a platform action sub-genre game developed and published by Double Fine Productions and Xbox Game Studios respectively. The game tells the story and adventures of Raz, a young acrobat with psychic abilities who is undergoing training to become a Psychonaut, an international task force made of people with psychic abilities that are tasked with fighting crimes all over the world usually committed by rogues with psychic abilities. The game is currently available for Microsoft Windows, macOS, Linux, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Let’s now get to know how to start a new game and replay levels.
Psychonauts 2: How to Start a New Game & Replay Levels
To get collectibles that were earlier missed, you will have to restart the game without losing the current saved progress, or you can directly replay a level in the game to get them. Let’s show you how to do both, starting with how to start a new game.
How to Start a New Game
Here’s how to start a new game. Carefully follow this guide:
The first thing to do here is to disable the Steam Cloud. To do this:
1) Open Steam and head to Library, then right-click on the game and select Properties.
2) In the Properties menu, uncheck the box labeled “Keep game saves in the Steam Cloud for Psychonauts 2” under the Steam Cloud option. This will prevent Steam from popping up your old saves when you restart.
3) Next, find saved data of the game which is usually in the “%localappdata%\Psychonauts2\Saved\SaveGames” pathway for Windows. Clear your “.sav” extensions in the Save Data Folder and start the game.
How to Replay Levels?
If you don’t want to restart the game, you can opt to replay certain levels. To do this, you will have to unlock the Collective Consciousness Area in the game via the Brain Tumbler. After the Casino Heist mission, head to the Nerve Center and a cutscene featuring Sasha will display. You will then be placed in the Collective Consciousness which allows you to step through doors and get back to previous levels played.
