[Update #2]: After a brief delay, Rogue Legacy 2 has now made its way to Steam Early Access!

[Update]: Rogue Legacy 2's Early Access release date has been pushed back to August.

It may have taken seven years, but the sequel to the roguelike action game Rogue Legacy is now nearly upon us. You can expect to see Rogue Legacy 2 hit Steam Early Access this July 23rd and remain there for approximately one year, or at least until all of the planned content has been polished up and ready to launch. If that sounds like a long time, it is worth mentioning that Rogue Legacy 2 is aiming to be twice as large as the original.

When it comes to the actual gameplay, however, things will be fairly similar. In other words, there will be a large and randomly generated world for you to explore with a variety of randomly generated characters, each of which will have something a little bit unique about them. Maybe one character will perceive sound as colors, another will be a staunch pacifist, while your third might just up being the most magnificent hero that has ever lived... all the way until he falls face-first into a spike trap and gets replaced by someone who's just kinda on the fat side!

If you're wondering what in the world I'm even talking about, you'll find your answers in the recently posted Early Access trailer. Have a look, it's a pretty fun one:

Regardless of whether that has cleared things up or just made them more confusing, you can learn more about Rogue Legacy 2 and its Early Access plans over at Steam. Enjoy!
