Axiom Verge 2 official artwork with logo

2D Metroidvania Axiom Verge 2 arrived onto PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation and Switch back in late 2021. However, if you're not a fan of either of those platforms and are patiently waiting for some other options, you might be happy to hear that it will also be coming to Steam this year.

The one downside is that you'll have to wait a fair few months in order for the Steam version to actually arrive as the exclusivity agreement with Epic was signed for a full year. As such, Axiom Verge will only be landing onto Steam this August 11th, 2022.

On a slightly different note, it's also worth mentioning that despite being a sequel, Axiom Verge 2 diverges quite significantly from the original. This is especially noticeable with the greater focus on storytelling, as well as the combat mechanics that are much more centered on close and personal encounters rather than ranged firefights. I don't mean any of this as a criticism since Axiom Verge 2 is still a solid Metroidvania, but just make sure to do a little bit of extra research before diving in so you don't end up being disappointed it's not like the original.

Whatever your thoughts on the matter may be, you can learn more about Axiom Verge 2 and its upcoming Steam version over at the official website.
