Spelunky 2 is finally getting a release date on Playstation 4 and PC
Spelunky is a series of rogue-like platformer games where you will play for treasure in avery large dungeon . The dungeon consists of many rooms and doors and is full of enemies and dangerous traps. You’ll find a variety of items and tools to aid your adventure, but we can guarantee you’ll die a lot.
As a rogue-like , every time you die, you have to start over from the first level without having anything. Not only that, the dungeon you are adventuring in will change, and what you will find in it will also change, including items , traps, and enemies.
Spelunky 2 will still provide the same gameplay experience , but of course with a variety of new enemies and traps. Even the characters you meet on the way can intend to kill you. But at the same time you can also collect new characters that you meet and interact with them in a social-hub that functions more as a gallery.
In addition, the shopping experience for items in the game will also be different. Then no less important, if previously you could play through local multiplayer , this time you can play online multiplayer with other players via the internet.
The Steam version of Spelunky 2 will come out shortly after PS4! We’ll need a little extra time to iron out online multiplayer on PC. Release date for that soon!
After Steam, we’ll look into other platforms. We are excited for as many people to play as possible. 🙂

When it was released in 2013, Spelunky won various awards such as the PC Gamer Game of the Year 2013 and the winner of the Independent Games Festival. From this success, Derek Yu then announced Spelunky 2 in 2017. We’ll see if three years of making Spelunky 2 can provide the same or better rogue-like experience than its predecessor.
