Blasphemous Wounds of Eventide DLC Coming This Winter, Sequel in 2023

Developer The Game Kitchen has announced that the "diabolically" good Blasphemous is getting a true ending this year and a sequel in 2023.

Blasphemous is one of those “difficult” modern 2D action platformers that melds 16-bit era toughness with Soulslike brutality. We called it a “must-play” when we reviewed it back in 2019. Now it’s getting what developer The Game Kitchen calls its “true ending” with the Wounds of Eventide DLC, which is set to release for free on December 9.

The DLC was revealed during a Gamescom 2021 presentation, but perhaps juicier than the prospects of more Blasphemous putting us at risk of eternal damnation this winter is the news of a Blasphemous sequel coming in 2023. 

Details about Blasphemous 2 are nonexistent right now; only the Roman numeral II and “2023” were shown at the end of the Wounds of Eventide trailer. But we do know that it’s in the works. Platforms haven’t been announced, and The Game Kitchen understandably hasn’t given a more pointed release window. 

The developers did say via a press release regarding the news that:

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 installment for the original Blasphemous, and we hope people love playing the new content as much as we loved creating it.

Wounds of Eventide will include new challenges for The Penitent One, including “new bosses, areas, and items.” Stay tuned for more as we learn it.
