Thanks to the update recently released, Psychonauts 2 can now be enjoyed by even more players. The May 24 update brought support for two additional text languages and a couple of bug fixes. The two added languages are Latin American Spanish and Russian, while the fixes are for the stability issues of the Strike City checkpoint at the end of the level.

The most important addition is, however, the release of Linux and macOS versions. The developer mentioned a couple of troubleshooting solutions which you can read below.


General information and troubleshooting:

  • Save data location: ~/Library/Containers/com.doublefine.psychonauts2/Data/Library/Application Support/Epic/Psychonauts2/Saved
  • Run the game on the latest macOS version if possible (12.4 as of May 2022) to ensure stability
  • Xbox gamepads are not fully supported. Please use a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 gamepad
  • Due to the large file size, app verification that occurs the first time you launch the game may take several minutes to complete on SSDs, and upwards of 15 minutes on slower hard drive storage
  • Changing resolution is handled by the "Resolution Scaling" slider found in the Settings > Graphics menu


Save data is located in: ~/.config/Epic/Psychonauts2/

The game may crash at launch or when attempting to alter Display settings such as Window Mode. Please try the following troubleshooting solutions:

  • Use alternate display drivers, found in Software & Updates > Additional Drivers
  • Go to Settings > Appearance and reposition the Activities bar to the bottom of the screen
  • Use an alternate desktop environment (DE) such as Gnome on X.Org or Ubuntu on Wayland
  • Try changing the resolution with the "Resolution Scaling" slider found in the Settings > Graphics menu

You can check out the changes via Steam as well.

Psychonauts 2 was released in August 2021 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The game garnered critical reception from both fans and critics. It was even nominated for GOTY at The Game Awards 2021, however, the award was won by It Takes Two.
