Rogue Legacy 2 Early Access Launch Pushed Back
Cellar Door Games announced that its planned Early Access release for side-scrolling action roguelite Rogue Legacy 2 has been delayed. The game will now arrive on Early Access on Steam and the Epic Games Store on August 18, 2020, three weeks after its previously-planned date. Rogue Legacy 2 is expected to spend around a year in Early Access.
Like its predecessor, Rogue Legacy 2 sees players controlling generations of adventurers in a randomly-generated world. Each time the player character dies, the world is regenerated — though bosses remain defeated — and a new hero is selected from a list of options, each with their own class and quirks that can help or hinder. Players are able to upgrade their home manor, ensuring the subsequent generations get stronger.
