7

Windlands 2, Psytec Games’ upcoming multiplayer sequel to the high-flying grappling hook adventure, is nearly here. Psytec has today announced that Windlands 2 is set to land on Oculus Rift next week.

Update (September 6th, 2018):  Windlands 2 pre-orders are now available on the Oculus Store, featuring a 15% pre-order discount off its regular price of $30, making it $25.50 before launch on September 12th. Check out the new feature trailer, which includes a better look at some of the upcoming bosses, maps, and story behind it all (linked above and below).

Original Article (September 3rd, 2018): Arriving as a timed exclusive on Rift September 12th, Windlands 2 takes some of its forbear’s game mechanics, such as the dual-handed grappling hook, and changes things up a bit with its imposing level bosses and four-player co-op.

We went hands-on with Windlands 2 back at Oculus Connect 4 last year and were impressed with what we saw. The game’s major new addition, four-player co-op, is somewhat of a departure from the zen-like feel of the original Windlands, but it’s likely to strike a chord with anyone who found the first a little too lonely at times; you’ll likely be goaded into pulling increasingly harder and faster jumps on your way through the parkour-heavy levels. There is of course the option to play single-player, although having a few buddies by your side as plan your attacks on level bosses certainly sounds more fun.
