Team17 announced that The Game Kitchen-developed metroidvania souls-like, Blasphemous 2 is now available for pre-order for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam, the Epic Games Store, and GOG.
The title’s base price is $29.99, though all platforms, save for PlayStation, have a 10% discount lasting until the release date, August 24, 2023. One must be a PlayStation Plus subscriber to apply for the PlayStation discount. For a hub of all digital pre-order stores, check out the game’s official website.
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. Fans can anticipate much of the same bloody action that became so beloved in the previous entry, with even more enemies to learn the patterns of and decimate.
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.
