It was in the works for a very long time, but Freedom Planet 2 made its debut on PC in 2022 to a great reception. Us console peasants have had to wait even longer, but at last, the side-scrolling sequel has a firm release date on PS5 and PS4. The game finally lands on 4th April 2024.

Freedom Planet 2 looks like a bigger, better version of its predecessor. Like the original Freedom Planet, this game takes inspiration from 16-bit era action games and platformers, mixing in Sonic-esque speed with more of a focus on combat and big bosses. It features four playable characters, each with their own abilities and traversal techniques. The above trailer provides a good overview.

We rather liked the first game, so fingers crossed the sequel is also worth the wait. Are you excited for Freedom Planet 2? Let us know in the comments section below.
