The developer The Game Kitchen and publisher Team 17 have announced they will be finally releasing their hellish 2D platformer Blasphemous on Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC and Switch.
Blasphemous A 2D Non-Linear Platformer Releases This Year
The 2D hack and slash Blasphemous is getting closer to a release date as the developer The Game Kitchen together with publisher Team 17 share that it will be releasing this year.
The dark action platformer started its Kickstarter campaign in 2017, securing well over its $50,000 goal with a $333,246 total backing. It grabbed the attention of many who were taken by its gothic style and merciless gameplay that takes inspiration from 2D sidescrollers with metroidvania influence.
We got to experience the demo in 2017 which didn’t share much in terms of storyline but let us experience the gameplay but did not go as far as the first boss fight.
The latest trailer shows off some of the forsaken land and some of levels players will face. Exploring the nightmarish world of Cvstodia, players will take up the role of The Penitent One, the only living survivor of the massacre of the Silent Sorrow. Expect “devastating combos and brutal executions”. We also get to see a peek at the customisation when it comes to builds, players can choose from a number of abilities for their desired playstyle.
You can watch the full trailer below:
Blasphemous hasn’t receive a release date but will be arriving sometime this year 2019 on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.
