Axiom Verge 2 official artwork and logo for the indie metroidvania

[Update]: Axiom Verge 2 has landed onto Steam alongside mostly positive reviews.

After spending a fair bit of time on the Epic Game Store, the PC version of Axiom Verge 2 will soon be landing onto Steam as well. And I really do mean soon, as Axiom Verge 2 will be launching next week, on August 11th!

While Axiom Verge 2 is an exploration focused Metroidvania just like its predecessor, the two games are actually quite different. Axiom Verge 2 has a far greater focus on storytelling and close quarters combat encounters, rather than the usual long ranged firefights. So if you're a fan of the original and itching to dive into a new adventure, you might want to do a little bit of research on it before diving in, just to make sure you don't end up being disappointed with the new direction.

As for what exactly all of this looks like in actual gameplay, that you can find out through the original launch trailer below. Have a gander:

Once the Steam version goes live I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can learn more about Axiom Verge 2 over at the official website. Enjoy!
