Deltarune: Chapter 2 release date revealed by Toby Fox

Deltarune: Chapter 2 release date revealed by Toby Fox


Toby Fox, author of Undertale, has announced that Deltarune: Chapter 2 has a release date: it will be available from tomorrow, September 17, 2021 for PC, Nintendo Switch and PS4.

The announcement started a countdown on the official website, which will expire upon launch.

Unfortunately, the details on Deltarune: Chapter 2 are scarce. We don't think it will be as free as the first one, although Toby Fox hasn't said anything about it. From the FAQ of the official site we also learn that it will be possible to use the save file generated at the end of the first chapter to continue the adventure in the second. If desired, it will be possible to start the adventure even without the aforementioned rescue. It will be enough to remember the story to be clear about what will happen during the adventure. Of course, it doesn't make much sense to play chapter 2 without having played chapter 1, but the information can be useful for those who will play it on a different system than the starting one.

Finally, chapter 2 will not end Deltarune. More chapters will come out in the future, but for now Toby Fox hasn't said anything about when we will be able to play them.

Deltarune Chapter 2, the next installment of the sequel to beloved indie darling Undertale, will be released Friday evening. The game will be coming first to Windows PC and Mac OS, according to its announcement trailer. Creator Toby Fox announced the game as part of a livestream celebrating the sixth anniversary of Undertale.

No word on when the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 versions will be released, but if you played on a console and want to play on a computer this weekend, you’ll still be able to. Players with no save data will be able to start right at Chapter 2 once it’s released at 8 p.m. EDT on Sept. 17. “As long as you generally remember what happened story-wise, you’ll be fine,” the developers said in an FAQ.

Deltarune takes place in the larger world of Undertale, and is intended for fans familiar with the first story. In it, you play as Kris, a child who one day accidentally fell into an alternate “Dark World” with their friend, Susie. Once there, the two are informed that they’re part of a team of three heroes destined to save it from eternal darkness. Deltarune isn’t a complete game; the only existing chapter of its story came out in 2018, and the second chapter will pick up after the events of the first.

If you played Deltarune on PC or Mac, you will be able to carry your save file over. Just make sure you have rolled credits on it, and the completion data will generate in your game.

As for how much of the story this chapter will include, we won’t know The website confirms that there will be additional chapters to come, and that the team has only “completed Chapter 2 so far, so please be patient.”
