Team17 Digital and The Game Kitchen premiered the very first look of Blasphemous 2 during last night’s Indie World Showcase.
Coming to Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation5, and Xbox Series X|S later this year, Blasphemous 2 follows The Penitent One as he awakens in an unfamiliar land, displaced from his final resting place, and thrust back into the endless cycle of life, death, and resurrection.
The sequel is set after the events of the original Blasphemous’ 2021 update Wounds of Eventide, and sees the return of the supernatural entity The Miracle, leaving The Penitent One no choice but to explore a strange unfamiliar world, defeat the monstrosities that lay in wait, and try to stop the prophetic birth of a new miracle child from coming to pass.
Featuring grotesque enemies and titanic bosses clambering to return him to the grave, The Penitent One will need to utilize and master new weapons and an enhanced skillset and try to survive long enough to deliver judgment to those who stand in his way, while unraveling long-forgotten secrets.
- Discover a rich non-linear world: A series of enchantingly grotesque landscapes await, oozing gothic charm and littered with unforgiving traps; there is no wrong turn to take, only scores to settle
- Unleash savage combat: Brutal executions and expanded combos provide new and devastating ways to rain destruction on the abominations that await
- Play your way: Blasphemous 2 provides the ability to customize and improve the Penitent Ones’ base skillset and introduces new unique weapons that expand player tactics
- Overcome intense Boss Battles: Twisted bosses with unique attack patterns and sundering abilities await in the darkest corners of this twisted new land
The original Blasphemous is an extraordinarily original and deeply compelling action-platformer. Not only is it rife with oppressive religious atmosphere, tone, and imagery, but its gameplay is also deep and challenging. We can’t wait for this extraordinary-looking sequel.
