Team17 announced that The Game Kitchen-developed metroidvania Souls-like, Blasphemous 2 will launch for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on August 24, 2023.
The publisher released a new trailer highlighting gameplay and some of the various locations players can explore. Further, we get a chance to check out the combat in action as players have access to new abilities and methods of traversal.
Players can look forward to a new storyline continuing from the first game’s free Wounds of Eventide DLC, where The Penitent One returns to battle new foes and explore new locales.
The world is fully nonlinear, meaning every player will craft their own journey across their playtime alongside heavy character customization with new weapons. Of course, the boss battles are touted as titanic and challenging, pushing your skills to your limits. Moreover, various NPCs will be interactable, and their motivations and actions will all differ. For instance, some may make requests while others won’t be as friendly.
In case you missed it, here are our impressions of the Blasphemous DLC Blasphemous: Strife and Ruin.
