The grisly Metroidvania game gets a whole heap of new additions.
The multi-award-winning action platformer Blasphemous, developed by The Game Kitchen, captured the attention of gamers worldwide with its brutal gameplay, challenging levels, and macabre style. Now, a sequel has been announced for 2023 so fans and newcomers alike can look forward to getting their hands dirty and stepping into the shoes of the Penitent One once again.
In addition to the sequel, The Game Kitchen has announced a brand new free DLC for the original title, named Wounds of Eventide. The DLC will reportedly conclude the first journey of the Penitent One and provide a true ending to the game, so those itching to see a proper wrap-up to the adventure should be satisfied.
Coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™, and PC on 9th December, Wounds of Eventide introduces new bosses, areas, and items, and underlines the stark truth that penitence never ends… it only changes.
Break the cycle, and live the truth:
The Game Kitchen, said: “We’re so excited to finally announce that we’ve started work on a Blasphemous sequel, the community have shown so much love for the first game and we can’t wait to share more when we can! New beginnings also mean new endings, and Wounds of Eventide is exactly that, it’s the final instalment for the original Blasphemous and we hope people love playing the new content as much as we loved creating it.”
“Finally, we wanted to share some behind the scenes from the production of the trailer you’ve just watched, it was important to us to stay true to the game’s roots, so we included a live orchestral track recorded by a selection of traditional and authentic procession musicians, with some of the orchestra having performed during the Holy Week in Seville, Spain. We want to extend our thanks to everyone involved in the process, especially the incredible musicians who bought our vision to life so vividly.”
Blasphemous is currently available for €24.99/$24.99/£19.99.
