We already knew that The Game Kitchen was cooking up a sequel to its great side-scrolling action game Blasphemous, and it's now finally been unveiled. Releasing on PS5 in late summer 2023, Blasphemous 2 looks like another solid, and unsettling, 2D adventure.
The sequel picks up after the events of the Wounds of Eventide DLC for the first game. The Penitent One has awoken in a new land and sets off to put an end to the cycle, aiming to stop the prophesied birth of a new miracle child.
It's set to feature new weapons, executions, and expanded combo potential, as well as a glut of horrid new bosses to conquer. You'll be able to customise and improve your skill set to complement your choice of weapon, too. Featuring an open-ended world, the game will also feature lots of secrets and mysteries, NPCs to meet, and of course, lots of baddies to thwart along the way.
We really liked the first game, so we're excited to see how the sequel builds on it. Are you excited for Blasphemous 2 on PS5? Tell us in the comments section below.
Yes, please. Time for some more grotesque imagery!
First game was amazing and I'm sure this one will be even better. Just from the video it looks like it has more fluid animations + movement.
@Perturbator I had the same thought about the animation and movement. It kooks much nicer.
I mean it was beautiful before, but this is definitely a step up.
Another game to be excited for over the summer
Again that ugly pixelated retro style, hate it.
Why these type of games cant look like Ori and Will instead.
The pixel art looks awesome to me. Also the first game was supported with really good updates. Will definitely keep an eye on this one
The first game has the best pixel art in any game I've ever experienced and the actual gameplay is pretty good also!
I just started the first game because of this news and also because it’s a part of the PS plus extra - love it and most likely will buy the second one.
This is a must buy for me!
Blasphemous is a really good game so its all good that blasphemous 2 is coming in late summer.word up son
Mostly budget. Ori & the Will of the Wisps has 304 credited developers, and a core team of around 60+. Plus it had the financial backing of Microsoft.
Whereas Blasphemous had 139 credited developers, and a core team of around 30. It's a much smaller team and budget.
Note: 'credited developers' includes everyone in the credits from voice actors, to musicians, to their legal team.
The people calling this game ugly cannot be serious. It looks so good!
Blasphemous was the biggest surprise of any game I played a couple years ago. So metal, so gritty, so good. The sequel will be a must-play
@mrraditch Yeah, I had to go back and make sure I watched the right trailer because it looks fantastic to me. To be sure, there’s a bit of a glut of unattractive pixel style games, but this really doesn’t seem to be one of them.
Love love love the premise of the first game, but I can’t play it no matter how hard I try. Don’t know if it’s a combo of the platforming + the difficulty, but I just get way too frustrated for my own good. Hope this is another gem for those that do play it though
I'm definitely getting this, not finished played the 1st games yet though, I played it on playstation & switch and defeated different boss on each console I think 😅
@mrraditch Yup, the 1st game also has really good 2D graphics, and I really like that there's "weight" on characters movement and attack, like the enemy with statue that drag their feet toward the players slowly and do heavy attack.
@Grimwood Whats ugly about it? It looks great what do you even mean it looks quite polished and cool to play.
@themightyant Some people think every game works with the same restraints. Money and people is one big difference and calling it ugly is ridiculous like some do here.
i was on the kickstarter for the 1st game so cannot wait for this to come out.. really decent bunch of Devs and they deserve success with the sequel
@misak192 bc it wouldn't be blasphemous with out them, so why dont you just go play ori instead???
@Flaming_Kaiser @mrraditch agree it looks fantastic to me. But I understand some don’t like the pixel art style.
@themightyant Calling something ugly is something different then not liking it in my eyes.
I'll buy this on sale with the first game when I have the spare cash.
