Axiom Verge was one of the best indie titles of the past generation, which reminded us of those afternoons of glory with the classics of 8 and 16 bits. The development of its sequel was confirmed long ago, which was initially going to be exclusive to Nintendo Switch on consoles (it would also be released on PC) … but last night, at the Summer Game Fest, nice news was revealed.

Through this presentation and an entry on the official PlayStation blog, the creator of the saga, Thomas Happ, confirmed what had been rumored: Axiom Verge 2 is also coming out on PS5 and PS4, with a launch window scheduled for this summer, although still without a specific date. About it Happ has spoken on the official PlayStation blog.

As part of the Day of the Devs presentation, we got to know new details about the long-awaited Axiom Verge 2, but without a doubt what surprised us the most was your confirmation for PlayStation. Along with a new gameplay trailer, we could see how the protagonist of this sequel, Indra, will travel to icy environments to face this new adventure.

Thomas Happ himself confirms that Axiom Verge 2 is coming to PS4 the same day as Nintendo Switch and PC, and admits that it will try to streamline the process of the PS5 version. Sony’s next-gen console version is not confirmed to arrive the same day, something logical given that it requires more work to optimize its technical section and performance.

As for playable news, we could see how in Axiom Verge 2 Indra will be able to hack robotic enemies, so that these are helpful in fighting against human enemies. Not only that, but also we can use melee weapons, a novelty compared to what was seen in the first title.

Remember that Axiom Verge 2 represents a great novelty in terms of setting. This sequel will take us to the frozen Antarctica, where we will be trapped after a helicopter accident. They wait for us there many secrets and dark revelations… that we will have to unravel with maximum skill and quick reflexes.

Axiom Verge 2 will arrive this summer, and not only on Nintendo Switch and PC, but also to PlayStation 4. What’s more, This sequel will also have its own version for PS5, although it remains to be seen if it will come out the same day as the rest of the versions, or it will be delayed for a few months.
