The summer of gaming events has begun. The Guerrilla Collective 2024 showcase has officially taken place, which means there is a slate of new reveals and bits of information in the wild about various upcoming indie titles. One of such is the announcement of a sequel that is actually set to debut within a couple of months.

Specifically, it's Volgarr the Viking II that is on the way. The sequel will be coming from the retro-focussed Digital Eclipse. The game is said to be set against a "backdrop of new and bigger-than-ever Norse-inspired worlds" and that we can look forward to a step up on the 2D side-scrolling action of the first game.

The gameplay and combat will still be brutal and demanding and will see players dying a lot throughout the adventure, but now there will be a practice mode, checkpoints, save profiles, and unlimited continues to help people enjoy the game without so much stress. If you want to experience the game in its most-hardcore format that is still very possible though.

Otherwise, expect a host of new enemy types and bosses to overcome, several new power-ups and magic items, speedrunning tools baked in like an on-screen timer and a no-HUD mode, plus six endings to discover that are based on player performance and a hidden level for the best to find.

While you can see the announcement trailer for Volgarr the Viking II below, you can also see a collection of images of the game too, to prepare you for its debut on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and Switch on August 6, 2024.
