Axiom Verge 2 artwork and logo

Much like the original, the newly launched Axiom Verge 2 is a 2D metroidvania action-adventure. What this means in gameplay terms is that you will spend most of your time exploring a massive world, collecting an assortment of powerups and weaponry, and then using said items to carve a path through hordes of enemies or simply unlock previously inaccessible pathways.

Naturally, there are some new ideas here as well, with the most intriguing one being hacking. The ability allows you to take control of just about anything, with each unique object having a different reaction. Some can be used as makeshift platforms, others can be swayed to fight for you, while a few will simply explode into colorful fireworks!

Rather than babble on, allow me to share with you the freshly posted launch trailer. It should give you a pretty good idea of just what all of this looks like in action, as well as what style of gameplay Axiom Verge 2 is even going for. Have a look:
