What you need to know

  • Aragami 2 is a third-person, stealth action developed and published by Lince Works.
  • Lince Works has released new gameplay footage and announced that Aragami 2 will be added to Xbox Game Pass when it launches on September 17, 2021.

Aragami 2 is a sequel to Lince Works' 2016 sleeper indie hit, Aragami. It is a third-person, stealth action game where you play as a warrior from the Aragami clan — a group of ninjas that possess an ability to manipulate the shadows called Shadow Essence. They use this accursed power to carry out dangerous assassination missions to ensure the survival of their clan and to free their brethren from enemy captivity.

Your missions will be filled with peril and your enemies will use all of their might to ensure your failure. Lince Works has recently released a lengthy gameplay video that demonstrates one of Aragami 2's first missions and the skills you will need to accomplish it.

As you can see from this video, mastering the art of stealth, combat, and your cursed abilities will be the key to silence your enemies. Aragami 2 will be released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC on September 17, 2021. If you're a Game Pass owner, you can pre-download the game right now because Aragami 2 will be added to Xbox Game Pass when the Xbox versions launch.

The original Aragami was one of the finest stealth games released in recent memory and I believe its sequel will maintain the original's high level of polished gameplay and become one of the best games on Xbox Game Pass.
