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.

Currently available through Early Access (Epic Games Store), aventurers can start exploring their own procedurally generated worlds on PC (Steam, GOG, Epic etc.) starting May 27, 2022 at $24.99, with a 10% discount for a limited time.

A Digital Deluxe Edition, which bundles the game, artbook and official soundtrack, will be available on Steam.

A demo for Unexplored 2 is currently available as part of the 'Going Rogue' event on Steam, which starts 2 May (10am PT) and ends 9 May (10am PT).

Unexplored 2 spent a year in Early Access and is now ready to fully launch on multiple storefronts. However, its development doesn't stop here. The studio and publisher will continue to support the game with patches and content updates. Furthermore, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S versions are in the works as well and a release date for those platforms will be announced soon. 

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 (Steam, GOG, Epic etc.) May 27, 2022 at $24.99, followed by Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S at a later time.
