Spelunky 2 will be released on PlayStation 4 on September 15, 2020. Spelunky 2 is the sequel to the cave exploration/treasure hunting classic Spelunky, and this new entry features online multiplayer, branching paths, new shops, and, perhaps most importantly, the ability to ride a turkey. Players will also be building a community of characters, old and new, as they make new runs through Spelunky 2. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/08/06/spelunky-2-gameplay-overview-state-of-play-2020"] Spelunky 2 was announced back at Paris Games Week in 2017, and it will be released first on PlayStation 4 and PC. Today's announcement made no mention of the PC release date, and we will update this story when we know more. The original game, which was released in 2008, eventually made its way to Xbox 360 as well, so Xbox owners should be able to explore some caves at some point down the road. The original Spelunky currently sits at #66 on our list of Top 100 Video Games of All Time, in which we said "Spelunky is a game about triumph. When you finally make it to a new area for the first time, when you finally beat Olmec, when you finally beat your best time, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment. You earned this. You did it."
