Microsoft announced the latest batch of Xbox Game Pass titles yesterday, and one of them is the roguelike platformer Spelunky 2, which despite first releasing back in 2020, will be making its debut on Xbox next Thursday, January 13th.
The game is a sequel to the 2008 Xbox Live Arcade title, and is "greatly expanded" this time around, featuring a bigger and more dynamic world with more content including branching paths and multi-layered levels.
Splelunky 2 has been a massive hit with both fans and critics alike so far, currently boasting an 87 Metacritic rating for PS4 (based on 41 reviews) and a 91 Metacritic rating for PC (based on 16 reviews).
Look out for it on Game Pass next Thursday — or you can choose to buy it separately, of course!
Spelunky 2 builds upon the unique, randomized challenges that made the original a roguelike classic, offering a huge adventure designed to satisfy players old and new. Meet the next generation of explorers as they find themselves on the Moon, searching for treasure and missing family.
