When it comes to high-quality role-playing games, the VR exclusivity of Asgard’s Wrath 2 may mean that many players have never heard of it. If that’s the case, you should check it out Asgard’s Wrath 2is the latest trailer that shows what makes Viking mythology so damn epic.
Fight against the gods in Asgard’s Wrath 2
The cinematic trailer highlights the player character destroying hordes of monsters with what appears to be an ancient pickaxe and a magical whip. After dodging the powerful blow of a seemingly masked god, they summon their mount and charge head-on into the forces of Loki. It looks very different from the version of Tom Hiddleston that we have come to know and love. It looks super fun, and looking at the first game it should hopefully be just as satisfying to play.

While the footage itself reminds players that what’s being shown isn’t real gameplay, Meta hasn’t shied away from showing what it’s likely to be the killer app for Meta Quest 2, 3 and Pro positioned. Developed by Sanzaru Games, the original Asgard’s Wrath has been praised as one of the best VR games on the market and has been called the best VR RPG of all time by many critics. Based on the marketing, the sequel is expected to reach similar heights with a massive 60-hour campaign, an endless dungeon crawling mode, and graphics that really don’t look like they belong on a meta headset. In fact, Meta is so convinced of it Asgard’s Wrath 2 will blow everyone’s mind that the company is bundling it with every Meta Quest 3.
Asgard’s Wrath 2 Players take on the role of a god who wants to make a name for himself in the pantheon of Nordic legends. To achieve this, they must possess the body of a mere mortal and embark on a sprawling campaign of war and bloodshed to stop Loki from wreaking havoc on the world. Players will traverse the world with a variety of companions, crushing many enemies along the way to increase their power, likely culminating in a decisive showdown with the God of Mischief himself.
Asgards Anger 2 releases December 15th for Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest 3 and Meta Quest Pro. At the time of writing, it is unknown if Meta has plans to port the game to other systems, but since its acquisition of Sanzaru Games, this seems unlikely.
