If you're like me and you've done basically all there is to do in Slay the Spire and you're now hungry for more, you'll be delighted to hear that a sequel has just been announced! Slay the Spire 2 will bring with it a brand new engine with improved visuals and expanded mod support, new characters and mechanics, enemies and treasures, and naturally, a whole boatload of new cards to fling at people!

While it sadly contains no gameplay footage, allow me to share with you the freshly posted trailer as that should give you a bit of an idea of the sort of atmosphere Slay the Spire 2 is going for, as well as who one of the new characters is! Have a peek:

Similarly, while the exact details are still few and far between, what I can tell you is that Slay the Spire 2 will be launching into Steam Early Access at some point in 2025. The original took a little over a year to be fully completed, so I imagine the sequel will be following a similar trajectory.

Once we get more information, and ideally a gameplay preview, I'll make sure to let you know as I'm quite excited myself. Until then, you can read a little bit more about Slay the Spire 2 over at Steam.
