Crytek today announced at the Oculus Game Showcase that its solo climbing game for Quest, The Climb 2 (2021), is getting a nice little slice of new content tomorrow.

Called the ‘Freestyle Expansion Pack’, the free update will be landing on April 22nd, bringing along with it six new levels that you can play on both ‘casual’ and ‘professional’ modes.

The studio says there won’t be any checkpoints, and completing levels without chalk will get you bonus points.

Crytek is releasing the DLC in two parts, which will bring 12 new levels in total. The studio hasn’t said when the second half is due, but we’ll probably be more than busy with the newly announced “rhythm-based climbing” challenges.

The studio says it will introduce “disappearing grips along your route, requiring you to learn the grip patterns to the beat of a background track to progress through.”

The Climb 2 earned a solid [8.5/10] in our review for its refined climbing mechanics, interesting new challenges, and mesmerizing exotic locales.

    Oh please Crytek, release an update for Robinson the Journey on the PC, so it supports newer headsets natively and better control support (and Index controller support). Or a sequel, although I still need to get past the raptors in the station so I have no idea how it ends, but I’m loving the enviroment and scanning the creatures.

      Better controller support PLEASE! For some reason tethered the controls work fine on Quest 2. But using Virtual Desktop some functions are just not recognized. It’s the only game that does this for me and it doesn’t matter how I map the controls in steam. :/

  • Those new “levels” look sooo bland and generic. It’s like a couple of floating blocks copy and pasted multiple times. Talk about least possible effort. Christ, they could have at least had them floating inside the normal game vistas or something.

  • Nice!

    I wasn’t thrilled with the addition of puzzle-like elements in The Climb 2 to begin with, which make it less of a climb and more of a video game. Now they’re going to turn it into Beatsaber, and force me to listen to music while I climb? What’s the point? If I wanted a random videogame, I’d have bought one. I bought a rock climbing simulator because I wanted a rock-climbing simulator. Won’t be shelling out for the next version if it continues in this direction. I can get random video games for a whole lot less.
