A New Legacy Begins

Rogue Legacy is a devilishly fun Metroidvania with its own unique challenges and a sequel has been in the works for a while. Now, we've finally learned the Rogue Legacy 2 release date — and it's not too far away!

Check out the Rogue Legacy 2 Early Access Trailer to see some of the many new heroes you can play in action!

If you haven't yet played Rogue Legacy, you've missed out on a roguelite Metroidvania game with a fun twist: you never play the same character twice. After swearing to defeat an ancient evil, your family sents a brave warrior into battle in a mysterious mechanical castle. Unfortunately, they're very unlikely to survive.

That's okay, though! Your kids (and your grandkids, and your great-grandkids) will take up your sword and carry on the fight. Each successive attempt will earn you more money and new powers, giving you better chances at venturing deep into the castle and defeating the vicious enemies inside.

 
 

Now, Cellar Door Games has proudly announced that they've locked down the Rogue Legacy 2 release date — and it's barely a month away!

When is the Rogue Legacy 2 Release Date?

Alright, let's get down to brass tacks: when is the Rogue Legacy 2 release date? If you were worried that you'd have to sit on your butt all summer with nothing to do, worry no more! You'll be able to play this game when it launches in Steam Early Access on July 23, 2020. No price has been announced.

If you like Metroidvanias, roguelites, or both, you should go ahead and add Rogue Legacy 2 to your wishlist on Steam. In the meantime, you can keep yourself occupied by buying the original Rogue Legacy on Steam, the Humble Store, or DRM-free on GOG for $14.99 or your regional equivalent.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
