'Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy' (ALL) Early Access Update Adjusts Gameplay

by Rainier on May 28, 2021 @ 9:22 a.m. PDT

Unexplored 2 is a roguelite action-RPG, featuring advanced world, level and quest generation, a gorgeous graphical style and a beautiful, orchestral soundtrack.

One quest. Unlimited adventure.

Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy is a roguelite action-RPG and prodigious sequel to the critically acclaimed indie gem, Unexplored.

Leave the Dungeon of Doom behind and venture into a vast, wondrous world as you embark on a heroic quest to destroy the mysterious Staff of Yendor.

Explore beautiful landscapes and discover hidden marvels. Encounter magical creatures and dangerous foes. Make brave choices and put your faith in good fortune. Featuring a unique legacy system, advanced procedural generation technology, and rich, generative storytelling, Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy is an adventure like no other.

The first update for Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy is being rolled out later today.

After listening to initial player feedback, Ludomotion has focused 'Balancing Update #1: Guide Stones' on improving the early game experience with new content and gameplay changes. Here's a rundown of what's included:

  • Guide stones: small statues that can give you buffs to help face the hardships of traveling
  • Better difficulty distribution: addressing difficulty spikes in early game content
  • Improved easy mode: making easy mode more noticeably easy!
  • Expanded creature roster for the early game: such as dire rats, and a couple of other new surprises
  • Improved fight or flight behavior: wildlife now more aware of its own mortality, and will retreat from fights it cannot win
Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy is available through Early Access on the Epic Games Store at $24.99 with a 10% launch discount for a limited time. An additional $10 discount can be applied at checkout by using the Epic MEGA Sale Coupon, which is available until 17 June, 2021.

Key Features

  • Legacy system: the actions of past heroes impact the fortunes of those that follow in their footsteps. Use your legacy wisely to give successive adventurers greater hopes of completing their quest
  • Permadeath in a persistent world: when a hero dies, they stay dead. But you can choose to return to the same world with a new adventurer, forearmed with knowledge of what lies ahead. Or, if you prefer, begin a new adventure in a completely uncharted world
  • Generative storytelling: there is no premeditated script in Unexplored 2. Every adventurer's ultimate goal may be the same – to destroy the Staff of Yendor – but every hero will have their own unique story of the events and encounters that happened along the way
  • Procedural generation: Ludomotion's proprietary technology generates content that feels designed by humans, not algorithms, and can create a near infinite number of new lands, new places, new stories, and new challenges to discover
  • Orchestral adaptive soundtrack: an intricate system allows Unexplored 2's music to be arranged reactively, making subtle changes to the score at appropriate times, whether a moment of high emotion, or to provide foreshadowing

Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy is coming to PC (Epic Games Store), Xbox One and Xbox Series X in Q1 2021.
