It has been revealed that punishing Metroidvania Blasphemous 2 will launch on August 24th. It will be available on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
Joining a reawakened Penitent One in an unfamiliar and unforgiving land, Blasphemous 2 follows on from the events of Blasphemous’ 2021 Update Wounds of Eventide. This latest adventure thrusts players back into the endless cycle of life, death, and resurrection.
The Miracle has returned. The birth of a prophetic new miracle child has been foretold, and it once again falls to The Penitent One to explore a strange world. You also must defeat grotesque monstrosities, and give everything to stop the prophecy from coming to pass.
Blashphemous 2 features three unique weapons to acquire and master. There is also an enhanced skillset to choose from. Players will have to use these new tools to survive long enough to deliver judgement to all who stand in their way. As they make their way towards the inevitable final confrontation, they’ll pick up pieces of scattered lore. Players will also unpick long-forgotten secrets of a new and punishing world as they cheat death time and time again.
