Cellar Door Games has announced that its charming rogue-lite sequel Rogue Legacy 2 will launch in full on Xbox and PC on April 28.
The game originally arrived in early access form on PC back in 2020. In case you’re not familiar, the game is something of a Metroidvania with rogue-lite elements. The twist is that every character you play as has certain traits, and these traits offer specific buffs or nerfs to a run. When you die, you pick from one of your heirs, who inherit all your skills and upgrades you’ve earned thus far.
Your children may have entirely different skillsets, like Rangers who are nimble and fast. Or they might be a bard who can sing and dance through levels. On top of these classes, children can also have specific quirks, like colour-blindness, deal massive damage but only take a few hits or can walk across traps without setting them off.
Whichever heir you pick, the castle itself will change configuration on every run, so you’ll have to rely on the upgrades you’ve got to help you through. Of course, you can always spend money earned on the previous run to upgrade your castle and surrounding area, which also gives you loads of buffs and perks. You can check out a trailer, care of IGN, down below.
