If you haven’t played Blasphemous yet, you’re missing out. Upcoming my first playthrough of Blasphemous, I was instantly stricken by the game’s style, mechanics, and incredible story. Once finished, I felt that pang of sadness that all gamers feel upon completing a particularly special game. Thankfully, the team behind Blasphemous has kept up a steady stream of updates and free content. Their latest DLC is called the Wounds of Eventide, a free update featuring new bosses, areas, and items. Additionally, Blasphemous II has finally been announced for a 2023 release!
PENITENCE NEVER ENDS! BLASPHEMOUS SEQUEL ANNOUNCED FOR 2023
The Game Kitchen’s sequel to the 2019 multi-award-winning action-platformer was confirmed alongside Wounds of Eventide, a brand new free DLC for the original Blasphemous.
Friday, 27th August 2021 – Team17 and The Game Kitchen have announced the development of a Blasphemous sequel, which is scheduled to arrive in 2023. Currently in the early stages of production, the game will be a direct follow-up to the multi-award-winning 2019 action-platformer. The announcement came alongside the reveal of Wounds of Eventide, a brand-new and free content update for the original Blasphemous that concludes The Penitent One’s first journey and unlocks the game’s true ending.
Coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™, and PC on 9th December, Wounds of Eventide introduces new bosses, areas, and items, and underlines the stark truth that penitence never ends… it only changes.
The Game Kitchen, said:
“We’re so excited to finally announce that we’ve started work on a Blasphemous sequel, the community have shown so much love for the first game and we can’t wait to share more when we can! New beginnings also mean new endings, and Wounds of Eventide is exactly that, it’s the final instalment for the original Blasphemous and we hope people love playing the new content as much as we loved creating it.”
“Finally, we wanted to share some behind the scenes from the production of the trailer you’ve just watched, it was important to us to stay true to the game’s roots, so we included a live orchestral track recorded by a selection of traditional and authentic procession musicians, with some of the orchestra having performed during the Holy Week in Seville, Spain. We want to extend our thanks to everyone involved in the process, especially the incredible musicians who bought our vision to life so vividly.”
