Well, that's unexpected. Axiom Verge 2, the sequel to the beloved indie metroidvania, is available today on PlayStation 4.

Dropped out of nowhere today alongside a showing at Nintendo's Indie World showcase, the game will be ready for purchase on PlayStation Store today, 11th August. A PS5 version is also in the works, but it's coming a little later down the line. For now, it's just the PS4 version.

The game itself tells a separate story from the first title, though there's a lot of overlap in terms of gameplay. You're still exploring an expansive world that opens up as you find and upgrade equipment, and it's all presented in a minimalist pixel art style. Fans will no doubt be very pleased to see the game's out — let's hope it lives up to the first.
