Slay The Spire 2 Is Coming To Early Access In 2025


Mega Crit has announced a full-on sequel to its hugely-popular roguelike deckbuilder, Slay the Spire, with Slay the Spire 2 set to launch in 2025 as an early access title.

The sequel is being built “from the ground up” in a completely different engine to the original (Unity) and will feature all-new slayers, cards, enemies, scenarios and more. Mega Crit credits the community’s feedback and fanfare around the first Slay the Spire in its early access period as a big reason for the team to do it again this time.

Here’s what Slay the Spire 2’s newly-minted Steam page says about the game:

The Spire Awakens

Civilization has waited 1,000 years for the Spire to reopen its doors…
Return to the Spire and face friends and foes in this sequel to the quintessential roguelike deckbuilder. How high will you ascend… and what truths lie at the top?

Deckbuilding Galore

New slayers join the fray with their own sets of cards, mechanics, and personalities. Try out more archetypes and master them at your own pace. The Spire forever awaits those who dare challenge it…

An Ever-Changing Spire

The Spire isn’t what it used to be. New enemies, events, and treasures await as the rooms and items you discover change each time you play… Try risky builds or play it safe as you explore countless different strategies, find yourself in peculiar scenarios, and confront the Bosses of each Act.

New Ways to Play!

That aren’t yet announced…

Rebuilt from the Ground Up

Slay the Spire 2 was completely rewritten from the ground up in a new game engine! We’re bringing in modern features, incorporating all-new visuals, and expanding moddability.

Coming to Early Access. Again!

Slay the Spire’s success comes from our community! It sounds corny, but the extra mile many of you went to report issues, translate content/announcements, create long video essays, make excellent (lol) tier lists, and draw goofy or gorgeous fan art is the reason we’re doing it all again. We love our job!
