Windjammers 2 will combine everything fans love about the classic title with entirely hand-drawn 2D animations to create the ultimate windjamming experience.

Windjammers is the best flying power disc game ever made, ever, and now is even better than ever made, ever, with new stages and players, surprising and amazing new power moves. The coming sequel also promises enhanced gameplay mechanics for today’s ultimate disc throwers.

An evolution of the original arcade classic, Windjammers 2’s radical power disc-flinging showdowns pair approachable mechanics with subtle depth, offering up an accessible competitive sport that’s perfect for casual rounds as well as high-stakes tournaments.

Windjammers 2 also features enhanced online multiplayer gameplay modes, providing rewarding competition for those looking for the ultimate challenge at home via their PC, on the beach with their Switch, or anytime and anyplace they feel the need to jam. Robust single-player modes are included for those who like to jam solo or hone their disc-craft offline in full neon spandex cosplay.

Competitors can incorporate all-new jumps, smashes, and slapshots while giving their all on the court, making Windjammers 2 a true elevation of the series’ style of action so revered it’s found a home among the fighting game esports community. You heard that right, Windjammers is totally on the pro esports circuit, dude. 

Publisher and developer Dotemu announced Windjammers 2’s radical showdowns are coming to PS4 and PS5 in addition to PC, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia.

Players can join an open beta starting tomorrow August 11 at 3pm CEST, competing in electrifying matches until August 22 on PS4, PS5, and PC (via Steam) and begin their legacies in the coolest sport of all time. 

The open beta offers several playable characters, each with their own advantages: the agile and newbie-friendly Steve Miller, the well-balanced Biaggi, the incredibly swift series newcomer Sophie de Lys, and the now-confirmed, tanklike returning star Gary Scott.

Novices and seasoned competitors looking to warm up their throwing arms can find help from Gary in the above fresh trailer outlining the mechanics and deeper strategies fueling Windjammers 2’s layered action.

Athletes can face off in online ranked play across courts spanning a sandy beach, roaring stadium, rowdy ring, or a towering rooftop complete with shot-deflecting bumpers. The open beta allows PS5 and PS4 owners to go head to head, while Steam users can battle to conquer their own league. Score goals through unpredictable play, unleash special moves for an upper hand, and climb the open beta’s leaderboards to become an indisputable champion.
