- Strife on GalaxyTrail Discord.

Freedom Planet 2 is the upcoming second game of the Freedom Planet series, taking place two years after the events of the previous installment. It was submitted to Steam Greenlight on February 10th, 2017[1] and was greenlit on February 14th, 2017[2]. The game's release date was previously estimated to be in 2018[2] and was later changed to late 2019.[3] Both of these estimates have passed and the Steam store page currently states that the release will be in 2020.[4]

A demo of the game called the "Sample Version" was released on 31st January 2017. The most recent version can be downloaded from Steam or the game's official website.[5]

Synopsis

Join Lilac, Carol & Milla as they team up with their once rival Neera to face their greatest challenge yet.

An ancient terror has emerged from the depths of the ocean. Merga, a Water Dragon from Avalice's oldest and deadliest war, has been freed from her crystal prison as a consequence of the Kingdom Stone's destruction. Through her act of vengeance, she holds a dark and terrible truth about Avalice's leaders that will change the history of the three kingdoms forever.

War is imminent once again, but this time, the heroes are split between sides. As friendships are tested, will the girls stand united when Bakunawa rises?[6]

Gameplay

The gameplay of Freedom Planet 2 remains broadly true to that of its predecessor[6], with the following major changes and new features added:

Adventure Mode

Adventure Mode now features a World Map, where the Player can explore the World of Avalice in style by accessing HUB Areas, interacting with NPCs and unlocking new Stages as they progress through the Story.

Classic Mode

Classic Mode is more unique from Adventure Mode this time, as it now features a grid map that allows quick and easy access to any Stage. By completing certain Stages, multiple Stages will be unlock at once, allowing the Player to tackle them in any order they want.

Guarding

The player can now tap a dedicated Guard button to avoid a certain amount of damage from incoming enemy attacks.[6] The shield will not fully reflect damage from larger or powerful attacks; however, it will reduce the amount of damage if properly timed. Milla can now spawn her Phantom Cubes by Guarding.

Revivals

When the character has been defeated, the player can use one of their Stocks to Revive them. This grants a few seconds of invincibility and some Health Petals back if a certain Power-Up is equipped. However, reviving doesn't work if the character's body has been disintegrated.[6]

ElementOrbs

The Guardian Orbs in all five elements (Left to Right: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal)

Guardian Orbs

Instead of releasing a shield that surrounds and protects the player, the Shield Crystals will release Guardian Orbs[7] which will follow the player around. There are five types of orbs, each corresponding to one of the five Elements. They all have similar buffs to the shields from the first game, as well as some new abilities. For instance, the Fire Orb is now water-resistant, and can now spawn a health petal for every 20 Crystal Shards. Also, if playing as Milla, the orbs will carry her Phantom Cubes until she uses them.

Certain Power-Ups can change the element of all shield crystals in a stage (for example, the Water Charm will change the element of all orbs into water).

The health of the Guardian Orbs is displayed on the character's Health Meter, stacked over two petals per orb collected; guardian orbs may absorb as many as six or seven hits if enough are collected. If the player, having obtained an orb of one element then collects another of a different element, the damage absorption will still stack but the element of the orb will change. Even though the player is protected from damage, they are not granted any invincibility when their orb is damaged.

Guardian Orbs have the following animal-like features:

  • Water Orb: Fish fins and tail.
  • Wood Orb: Butterfly wings.
  • Fire Orb: Phoenix wings and tail.
  • Earth Orb: Beetle wings.
  • Metal Orb: Eagle wings.

Speed Gates

Speed Gates are rainbow rings with a similar appearance to the Time Gates from Pangu Lagoon. When the player passes through one of these rings, a bonus timer will begin, and the player will be able to earn Bonus Crystal Shards by leaving behind a trail of tao marks. Once the timer runs out, all the tao marks on the trail will transform into Crystal Shards. The longer the Tao trail is, the more Shards the player will earn.

Star Cards

Star Cards remain as collectibles and can be viewed in the inventory. However, they are now dropped by bosses and must be collected to complete each corresponding stage; they can also be found in stages without bosses. They can be traded in the Battlesphere, where the player can unlock Arena Challenges. Also, Star Cards are now required to unlocked certain Stages.

Hub Worlds

Hub Worlds, which didn't make it into the game's predecessor due to time constraints, will be a part of the game's Adventure Mode and will be filled with NPCs (Non-Playable Characters) that the player can interact with. Freedom Planet 2 will also have a World Map, allowing the player to move between the Hub Worlds.[8]

Cutscenes

Adventure Mode features cutscenes similar to those of the first installment, in which the story is explained with unique animated sprites and voice acting.

The original concept for Freedom Planet 2's cutscenes in the visual novel style.

It was originally intended for the cutscenes to play out in a style similar to a visual novel using still images, with only certain scenes including sprite movement. However, this was shown to have been altered in the 2019 Adventure Mode trailer.

Pause Menu

The pause menu has been expanded with the following new features:

  • Guide: This provides the player with an in-game instruction manual on how to play the game, giving them details on basic controls, revivals, special attacks for each character and collectible items.
  • Photograph Mode: This allows the player to take photos of the character while the game is paused. They can pose the character on the ground or in midair, making them look adventurous or even comical. The Photos taken will then be placed in the Photo Album.
  • Photo Album: This lets the player look at all the photos they took in Photograph Mode. It is able to hold up to 50 photos.

Power-Ups

Power-Ups are Items that can be equipped to the player and, depending on their usage, can increase or decrease the difficulty of certain sections of the Game. Their are over 30 Power-Up and counting, all divided into 5 categories:

  • Special Power-Ups: These enable the Playable Characters to a Special Ability, depending on the chosen Character is determines the ability.
  • Potions: These give the player a passive buff in a Stage, making it easier to collect Crystal Shards, Health Petals and Extra Stocks.
  • Amulets: These can alter a Stage, putting time records into a separate into a separate category and provides the player with Shield Crystals.
  • Brave Stones: These can inflict negative effects on the player, making the Stage harder, but provides a Crystal Shard Bonus upon Stage completion.
  • Fusion Stones: These can be created when 2 Power-Ups with contradicting effects are equipped, inflicting bigger negative effects, but provides a bigger Crystal Shard Bonus.
