Crytek stopped the teases today and revealed the actual release date for The Climb 2. It’s coming to Quest / Quest 2 next week on March 4!
The Climb 2 was originally revealed late last year during the first ever Facebook Connect digital conference, alongside a slew of other Quest games like Myst VR and Sniper Elite VR. Originally, The Climb 2 was slated for late 2020 but got pushed into 2021. Now, Crytek is finally confirming the launch date for next week.
If you ever played the original game, The Climb, you might notice one of the most obvious changes this time around is the prominence of skyscrapers and more urban environments in the artwork and trailer footage. From the looks of it, The Climb 2 is aiming to have a bit more variety in its locations.
According to the Oculus Quest store page:
The thrill of climbing comes alive with The Climb 2 — explore a new city setting and exhilarating new maps with breathtaking views. Ascend grand peaks, navigate vast caves, climb skyscrapers, and discover hidden shortcuts as you find your path to the top. Compete with friends and conquer leaderboards in asynchronous multiplayer modes. From exploring mountain environments to scaling urban settings, feel the rush of climbing without ropes, and experience breathtaking vistas as you scale new heights.
When we reviewed the previous game back when it first debuted on Oculus Rift, it was breathtaking and exhilarating. Fingers crossed the sequel can live up to those same lofty expectations.
The Climb 2 will release for Oculus Quest and Quest 2 on March 4. In the announcement trailer it states the game is coming “only” to the Oculus Quest platform.
