Klang 2 Delivers Pulse-Pounding EDM Action on PC October 20, 2021
HAMAR, Norway – 23 Sept. 2021 – Klang 2, the rhythm-action game with hypnotic beats and high-speed action from developer Tinimations, delivers flow-inducing battles on Windows PC via Steam on Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2021.
Enter an immersive world where cadence and combat are one and the same. Progress through choreographed fight scenes scored to an EDM soundtrack from lead audio collaborator bLiNd as well as Otographic Music, City Girl, James Landino, and other artists. Strike enemies with mighty tuneblades for rapid-fire damage, dash and counter through foes’ incoming attacks, and charge up special hold attacks to unleash powerful lightning strikes – all while moving in tune to the music.
Master a semi-procedural combat system that ensures no battles play out the same. Get familiar with beatmaps and the flow of each song, but keep a keen eye on your adversaries, as their procedural movements and attack patterns change according to Klang’s position and performance. Face off against six imposing bosses throughout the story, each with a dynamic style requiring different strategies to overcome or tackle arcade mode’s 24 tracks for pulse-pounding action.
Klang 2 supports multiple input methods, including mouse and keyboard, gamepad, drawing tablet, and touch controls. Choose a preferred method and dive into a techno-greek world drawing inspiration from synthwave aesthetics, Greek sculptures, and musical symbolism. Devour a gripping story following two characters with changing motivations and surprising twists. Uncover optional dialogue opportunities between stages for a deeper dive into the lore of Klang 2, or tune out and focus on the action by ramping up the speed of each track for an increased challenge.
“Today marks the fifth anniversary of the original Klang,” said Tom-Ivar Arntzen, Tinimations founder and sole developer of Klang 2. “The sequel is a more refined, intense, and tighter rhythm-action experience. Whether you’re a fan of the first, or a newcomer looking for an entrancing EDM action experience, give Klang 2 a spin when it comes to Steam on October 20, 2021! I’m also happy to share that the console versions of Klang 2 are looking great and will be available sometime after the PC launch!”
Klang 2 will be available on Steam for Windows PC Wednesday, October 20, 2021, for $15.00, with English, French, Norwegian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Turkish and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional)-language support. Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One versions will be available following the PC launch in 2021.
