Spelunky 2 — the long-awaited sequel to the fan-favourite 2008 original that was announced at Paris Games Week in 2017 — will release for PlayStation 4 on the 15th of September, publisher Mossmouth has revealed.
Thankfully, PC fans won't have to wait until next year to actually play it, as the roguelike game will arrive on Steam "shortly after PS4! We'll need a little extra time to iron out online multiplayer on PC. Release date for that soon," Spelunky Creator Derek Yu revealed. As of yet there's no word on its Xbox One version.
"Spelunky 2 is big," Yu said. "Our State of Play trailer, directed by Derek Lieu, does an excellent job of conveying how much more expansive [...] the world is compared to the first game. The time it takes to complete a successful run, however, hasn’t increased that much – instead, the journey has become much more dense and varied, with lots more to do and try with each time you venture into the caves."
What's even better, Spelunky 2 is fully playable in co-op, allowing up to 4 players to simultaneously assume the role of the next generation of cave explorers who embark on a dangerous journey to explore the Moon.
With Spelunky 2 launching in September, we will definitely learn a whole lot more about its unique features in the near future. In the meantime, take a closer look at its action-packed release date trailer down below:

After Steam, we'll look into other platforms. We are excited for as many people to play as possible. :)
The sequel to the critically-acclaimed roguelike platformer Spelunky is in development and coming to PS4 and Steam! In Spelunky 2, the story deepens as more randomly-generated adventures beckon. What new secrets are lying in wait...?
