It’s time to scale new heights in the sequel to our award-winning original with new routes, a new City setting, and new gameplay features. Ascend soaring skyscrapers, climb around snow-capped mountains, conquer sheer cliff-faces and take in some of the best views in VR as you play through The Climb 2’s single-player and asynchronous multiplayer modes.
15 maps are set in five environments inspired by the real world, from the snowy Arctic to the heat of the Grand Canyon, and the game also introduces a new City environment. We’re really excited about this one. The new urban setting challenges you to zipline through vast cityscapes, climb glass-fronted skyscrapers with suction pads, and navigate moving platforms and elevators high above the streets.
Dynamic objects also bring a new dimension to gameplay, allowing you to use moving ropes, ladders, hanging containers, and more to swing from obstacle to obstacle. New sliding grips provide a risk vs. reward gameplay, as you can earn extra speed and reach if you can time your leap before you fall off a handhold.
The Climb 2’s asynchronous multiplayer mode lets you challenge friends, rise to the top of leaderboards, and participate in new live events. As you progress through the difficulty settings and beat challenges, you can earn achievements that are rewarded with cosmetic gear, including gloves and watches. By beating the clock, you’ll unlock mesmerizing vista views from the peak of each route.
Your climbing technique can be perfected in the game’s practice mode. The beautiful environments can also be explored at your own pace in Tourist mode, which provides a unique and relaxing VR experience.
“VR is simply an amazing way to experience the adrenaline of climbing without ropes, and The Climb 2 builds out the core experience of the original game with new routes, new features, and a brand new urban environment,” said Fatih Özbayram, Executive Producer. “Dynamic objects bring an exciting new dimension to gameplay, and, in a first for a Crytek game, we’re proud to partner with Red Bull, who share our passion for action sports. The team has worked hard to push the graphics even further, increasing the feeling of presence in VR. Just wait until you look down…”
We can’t wait to hear your feedback on the new routes, features, and of course, that new City environment. We’ll be keeping an eye on the leaderboards too!
