Team 17 and The Game Kitchen are wrapping up the development of Blasphemous' final update and shifting their sights onto a direct sequel. Wounds of Eventide update is coming on December 9.
Team 17 is cooking up a sequel set in the Blasphemous universe with the help of The Game Kitchen. According to the announcement, the sequel is a direct follow-up to the award-winning 2019 action-platformer and is still in the early stages of production. The team is aiming for a 2023 release.
Team 17's announcement came packaged with the first look at Wounds of Eventide: a brand-new and completely free content update for the original Blasphemous that concludes The Penitent One’s original journey and unlocks the game’s true ending.
Wounds of Eventide will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on December 9 and bring new areas with fresh bosses, new items and hammer home the point that penitence never ends.
To celebrate the double happy news, Team 17 shared a very special update trailer:
The Game Kitchen team offered:
"We’re so excited to finally announce that we’ve started work on a Blasphemous sequel, the community have shown so much love for the first game and we can’t wait to share more when we can! New beginnings also mean new endings, and Wounds of Eventide is exactly that, it’s the final instalment for the original Blasphemous and we hope people love playing the new content as much as we loved creating it."
"Finally, we wanted to share some behind the scenes from the production of the trailer you’ve just watched, it was important to us to stay true to the game’s roots, so we included a live orchestral track recorded by a selection of traditional and authentic procession musicians, with some of the orchestra having performed during the Holy Week in Seville, Spain. We want to extend our thanks to everyone involved in the process, especially the incredible musicians who bought our vision to life so vividly."
Blasphemous is currently available for £19.99 (€24.99/$24.99).
