Slay the Spire II

Indie developer Mega Crit has announced Slay the Spire II, their new sequel to their breakout success roguelike deckbuilder.

Slay the Spire II will launch for Windows PC (via Steam) in early access, sometime in 2025.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus its reveal trailer:

The iconic roguelike deckbuilder returns. Craft a unique deck, encounter bizarre creatures, and discover relics of immense power in Slay the Spire 2!

Civilization has waited 1,000 years for the Spire to reopen its doors… Return to the Spire and face friends and foes in this sequel to the quintessential roguelike deckbuilder. How high will you ascend… and what truths lie at the top?


  • Deckbuilding Galore – New slayers join the fray with their own sets of cards, mechanics, and personalities. Try out more archetypes and master them at your own pace. The Spire forever awaits those who dare challenge it…
  • An Ever-Changing Spire – The Spire isn’t what it used to be. Encounter all new enemies, events, and treasures await as the rooms and items you discover change each time you play… Try risky builds or play it safe as you explore countless different strategies, find yourself in peculiar scenarios, and confront the Bosses of each Act.
  • New Ways to Play – That aren’t yet announced…
  • Rebuilt from the Ground Up – Slay the Spire 2 was completely rewritten from the ground up in a new game engine! We’re bringing in modern features, incorporating all-new visuals, and expanding moddability.
  • Coming to Early Access. Again – Slay the Spire’s success comes from our community! It sounds corny, but the extra mile many of you went to report issues, translate content/announcements, create long video essays, make excellent (lol) tier lists, and draw goofy or gorgeous fan art is the reason we’re doing it all again. We love our job!
