Solo developer Tom Happ took to the PlayStation.Blog today to share a new Axiom Verge 2 “breach” gameplay trailer and describe various new features to expect in the final release. The game will deliver a new setting with abilities to upgrade, the return of hacking enemies, and a tough little droid to navigate. The most notable revelation is that Axiom Verge 2 is actually “two worlds in one,” with an interconnected breach world coinciding with the world we’ve seen in all the previous trailers. Happ even described the title as “two games in one.”
Exploration will depend upon navigating between both worlds thoughtfully. The main world feels organic Earth-like, whereas the breach world will have blockier tiles and feel more alien. There will be palpable gameplay differences between the two though, so that it is not merely a gimmick tacked onto Axiom Verge 2 of having to jump back and forth between two worlds to solve a random puzzle.
Axiom Verge 2 with its two-world gameplay currently has a Q3 2021 release date on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Epic Games Store. You might note that we are currently in Q3 2021… Curious. We probably won’t be waiting too much longer to play this one.
