The pixel-art-fueled, medieval aRPG Hammerwatch II is coming Xbox and PS4

High adventure is coming to even more platforms this month, as fantasy action RPG Hammerwatch II hits Xbox and PS4.

Join the ‘watch

Swathed in some impressive retroish, pixel art visuals, Maximum Entertainment’s Hammerwatch II followed-up the fan-favorite original with an even bigger game. The title featured multiple classes to pick from, leveling up skills and abilities, and a lengthy quest for players to sink themselves into.

Originally the fantasy adventure was released on a slightly limited selection of platforms however, with only the Switch, PS5, and PC being supported. Well, as of today we know when the Xbox Series X|S and PS4 versions will be dropping, and it’s this month.

Journey through Hammer Island, the Fallowfields and the dark mountainous regions of Blackbarrow, all created in the signature Hammerwatch pixelated art style, as you work to aid King Roland’s resistance against Blight the Horrible and his dragon army. Build a custom Herian Hero and choose between five distinct character classes: Paladin, Ranger, Rogue, Wizard and Warlock before customizing your appearance and leveling up to unlock powerful new abilities and skills. 

Maximum Entertainment press release

If you didn’t watch the trailer above all the way through, then you’ll be glad to know that yes, you will be able to take to the road to Hammer Island later this month. Hammerwatch II is en route to Xbox Series X|S and PS4 for release on April 23rd, 2024.
