Axiom Verge 2 Surprise Launches Today

A New World

Axiom Verge 2

The original Axiom Verge made big waves when it released back in 2015. So of course fans were excited when a sequel to the well received Metroidvania was announced. Until today though, we had only the vague idea that it was coming in 2021. During Nintendo’s Indie Showcase this morning however it was revealed that Axiom Verge 2 is launching today. Even better, that’s not just on Switch.

Axiom Verge 2 is part of the same story as the original game, but there’s a lot new about it. New characters, a new world, new powers to fight with, and new enemies to use them on. Developed entirely by Thomas Happ, it is exciting to see his years of work come to fruition.

If you can’t wait to jump into Axiom Verge 2, you’re in luck on most systems. The game is out today on Nintendo Switch, PC via the Epic Games Store, and PS4. A PS5 version is listed on the game’s website as coming soon, but it will not be available today. Happ has also mentioned in the past that the game is coming to Xbox platforms but that version is also not available today.

If you need something to tide you over while the game downloads, or just want to see if Axiom Verge 2 is the game for you, check out a trailer below.

When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
