After promising that it would arrive a few weeks after the PS4 version, Mossmouth has confirmed a release date for Spelunky 2 on PC. It will release on September 29th via Steam. This gap in release is due to the developer needing additional time to polish online multiplayer for the PC version.
As a sequel to the first game’s story, Spelunky 2 sports a new cast of characters and head to the Moon for new dangers. Along with new areas and monsters, players can also expect new traps, items, alternative routes and mounts which offer special skills. You’ll also run into new NPCs that can either help you or turn into a brand new threat.
Along with changing up shops and ghosts, Spelunky 2 will also offer a “second layer” in stages. This later exists behind the regular stage and can often hold hidden passages, rooms with treasure and other secrets. If that weren’t enough, there will be more wide-ranging mysteries that may require the entire community’s efforts to solve.
Stay tuned for more details on Spelunky 2 in the coming weeks. It releases on September 15th for PS4 first.
