With the official launch of Version 1.0 for Rogue Legacy 2 set to arrive April 28 on PC and Xbox consoles. A sequel to 2013’s Rogue Legacy, it sees players take on the roles of adventurers and their descendants over time as they look to take out bosses and finally put a stop to evil in what is very much a rogue-lite.
After an extended period in Early Access, the full version is set to debut at the end of the month.
"This is the largest game our small team has ever made, and knowing that folks will soon get to play it is both nerve-wracking and exciting," writes Teddy Lee, Game Designer, Rogue Legacy 2. "We put as much love and care into Rogue Legacy 2 as we could muster, and we hope fans will feel this when they finally get to play the game on April 28th."
One of the charms of the original is its sense of humour, and how the "genealogical rogue-lite" setup could mean that your next hero might be colourblind, a ninja, or a vampire. Apparently one of the possibilities is becoming a vegan that dies if they eat meat. Underneath all of that though is fast-paced action and progression systems befitting the 'rogue-lite' label.
