Blasphemous 2 receives a release date announcement trailer

Team17 Digital and The Game Kitchen have revealed a new trailer for the punishing Metroidvania Blasphemous 2. The video showcases more gameplay details, a brief lore narration, and the so-desired release date. The game will launch on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 5, 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 and 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, defeat grotesque monstrosities, and give everything to stop the prophecy from coming to pass. Featuring three unique weapons to acquire and master, and an enhanced skillset to choose from, players will have to use these new tools to survive long enough to deliver judgment 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, and unpick long forgotten secrets of a new and punishing world as they cheat death time and time again.

Blasphemous 2 Key Features

  • 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 customise 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 game also features an artistic direction not for the faint of heart. Some bosses are visually impactful, even more so if their beliefs do not match the game's proposal and theme. However, this does not take away from the fun and enjoyment of its Metroidvania style.

Blasphemous 2 promises to build on what made the first game great and introduce new features for the Penitent One. The game launches on August 24th for PC and consoles. You can check out our comparator for the best deals on Blasphemous 2 and witness all the Miracle's grace.
