If you’re tired of games that require astronomical amounts of RAM and GPU memory, it’s good to know that even in 2020 we can delight ourselves with much less pretentious titles. It’s also the case for Rogue Legacy 2, a game that arrives for Windows PC on July 23 via Steam Early Access and Epic Early Access.
The game just got its first gameplay trailer, and you’re free to feast your eyes upon it below:
Steam details for us more about Rogue Legacy 2, saying that it’s a genealogical rogue-LITE. There are changing characters, randomized guns, and a lot more. The gaming platform continues by adding:
“In this game, your legacy defines you. Spend your parents’ inheritance and grow the family manor to give your children a better fighting chance. Each child is unique, with their own traits and abilities. Your daughter could be an archer. She could also be a Vegan. Rogue Legacy 2 also lets you play how you want to. Go hard and fast, and you can dive deeper into the depths of a randomly-generated world. Or take it slow and steady, and build your character up until you’re ready for greater challenges.”
Rogue Legacy 2 is the sequel to Cellar Door Games’ Castlevania-esque rogue-lite exploratory platformer, and it’s one of those games that reminds us about the 8-bits or 16-bits consoles like NES and SNES, respectively. There are boss fights, passing through each level by battling hordes of foes, and a lot more exciting stuff. You’ll get to play with a sword, an axe, a bow, and more. You’ll get to jump over foes Super Mario-style, and fight for the right cause.
Until now, there’s no clue that Rogue Legacy 2 will be available for other platforms besides PC, but we can be optimistic. Play Station 5 and Xbox Series X will also arrive to the market in several months, which means the possibility for more platform availability.
