Spelunky 2 is a cave exploration / treasure-hunting game inspired by classic platform games and rogue-likes, where the goal is to grab as much treasure from the cave as possible.

Spelunky 2, the story deepens as more randomly-generated adventures beckon.

What new secrets are lying in wait...?

Spelunky is a unique platformer with randomized levels that offer a challenging new experience each time you play. Journey deep underground and explore fantastic places filled with all manner of monsters, traps, and treasure. You'll have complete freedom while you navigate the fully-destructible environments and master their many secrets. To stay or flee, to kill or rescue, to shop or steal... in Spelunky, the choice is yours and so are the consequences!

Spelunky 2 will keep Spelunky’s multiplayer traditions alive with cooperative and versus modes. Thanks to BlitWorks, you’ll be able to go online next month and play these modes with friends and family around the world!

As with Adventure Mode, we’ve also expanded Deathmatch into something bigger called the Arena, which includes Deathmatch and a new competitive mode called Hold the Idol. You might have heard me say before that I felt Deathmatch was an underrated mode in the original game – well, in recent years I’ve heard from quite a few fans who loved competing with their friends and family in this mode. With the improved interface, new features, and extended customization, I’m excited to see how players feel about this side of the game, especially with online multiplayer as an option!

The PC (Steam) version of Spelunky 2 will come out shortly after PS4! We'll need a little extra time to iron out online multiplayer on PC.

After Steam, we'll look into other platforms.
