Fancy another surprise Xbox Game Pass announcement?! Why not...

Publisher Raw Fury has announced that 2D roguelike platformer Gonner2 is heading to Xbox Game Pass, and it'll be available on the service as soon as next Thursday, October 22nd.

The game is a sequel to the 2018 Xbox One title, which had previously been available with Xbox Game Pass until it was removed last month. In Gonner2, you can look forward to more intense platformer shooter action, procedurally generated levels, grand boss fights, four-player local co-op and much more.

Initially, Gonner 2 will only be available for console with Xbox Game Pass, but a version of the game for Windows 10 will reportedly follow "soon after" (thanks Gematsu).

Altruistic and unexpected hero Ikk is finally back in GONNER2, a story about the strange friendship between Ikk and Death — but this time Death needs Ikk’s help. Her lair has been taken over by a mysterious presence and she needs Ikk to take it down.

This is a game for the curious, the brave and the tad bit whimsical. Awaken your inner kid as you get into a sweet flow, flying through levels, shooting everything that moves and pulling off ludicrous, acrobatic destruction. All this while you discover the spooky and chaotic world that surrounds you with bursting colors.

Looking forward to this? Are you a fan of the first game? Let us know in the comments.
