PixelJunk Eden 2 Announced for PC and PlayStation

After three years, it's coming to other platforms now.

Independent developer Q-Games are proud to announce that PixelJunk Eden 2 is officially coming to PC and PlayStation.

It was recently announced that the PixelJunk Eden 2, originally released on Nintendo Switch in 2020, is finally coming to more platforms later this year. It will be coming to PS4, PS5, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store. The award winning PixelJunk series’ latest entry will be released for the first time on these platforms after three years since the original one.

PixelJunk Eden 2 sees players twirling, leaping, and tumbling hypnotic landscapes, accompanied by a mesmerizing soundtrack composed by celebrated multimedia artist Baiyon.

To celebrate the announcement, a new trailer has been released. It shows the game’s unique visual style in stunning 4K for the very first time.

Players explore the beautiful gardens of Eden as a Grimp, a tiny creature with big personalities that swing from silk to collect pollen. When nearby seeds fill with collected pollen, the garden will evolve and expand, constantly growing and changing in response to the player’s actions. This will let the Grimps locate Spectra, the source of life in the garden, as well as other Grimps with unique abilities and Spices that provide a wide variety of gameplay customization options.

Feature Overview:

  • A hypnotic harmony of sights and sounds, brought to life in stunning 4K
  • Full single player campaign with the option for local 2 player co-op
  • Swing and spin from silk threads against a backdrop of kaleidoscopic visuals
  • Over 20 playable Grimps to find and unlock with unique abilities and personalities
  • Discover 40 game altering Spices and use them to customise your starting combination
  • Lose yourself in Infinite Mode and swing freely through the ever-changing gardens
  • Tune in to the psychedelic soundtrack from soundscape composer Baiyon
  • New immersive control system inspired by the classic controls of the original PixelJunk Eden

Dylan Cuthbert, Founder of Q-Games and Executive Producer said:

“The PixelJunk series is close to the hearts of many players who have been with us since the PS3 days, so being able to share this eagerly awaited sequel to 2008’s PixelJunk Eden with more of our community is a special moment.

As part of our 15th anniversary celebrations, we’re thrilled to be able to bring both PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe and PixelJunk Eden 2 to fans on PlayStation and PC this year. Not only that,  but there’s more in store for PixelJunk fans. So watch this space!”
