Hell yeah, Hammerwatch 2 is basically going to be Diablo Lite without the live service cruft

Hammerwatch and its followup Heroes of Hammerwatch are both excellent, co-op hack and slash games, the first a dungeon crawler and the second a roguelite. Developer Crackshell has now revealed its next game, Hammerwatch 2, and what the hell? It’s a full-on co-op action RPG now, and one that looks ridiculously pretty for a pixelated hack-and-slasher.

Hammerwatch 2 showed up at today’s Guerrilla Collective showcase with an explainer video featuring Crackshell’s creative director Jochum Skoglund. “With the sequel we are going for a more open-ended action adventure experience,” Skoglund says.

Previous Hammerwatch games were already fantastically fun and chaotic with their bullet-hell adjacent boss fights, screens full of criss-crossing spells, and dungeon puzzles. Hammerwatch 2 is bringing that all back and then some.
