A year ago, players had the opportunity to browse the iron song; a side-scroller inspired by the souls of Resting Relic. Well, it seems this solo developer refuses to believe the slowdown, announcing a brutal sequel – Song of Iron 2.
A blood-soaked 2D action platformer, Song of Iron 2 has been revealed for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam, as Resting Relic gives gamers another chance to prove their worth on the pitch .
You’ll return to the brooding, Norse-inspired world of Song of Iron as you seek to embrace the name “Chainbreaker” given to you by Odin. Seeking out the Viking clans and freeing them from slavery is your task, as is hunting down Wolfric, whose clan razed your home and killed the one you loved. Are you ready to hunt revenge, fight the Imperium and unite the clans?

Prove your bravery against enemies new and old, including goblins, trolls, draugr, guards of the Imperium and even gods. Maintain momentum during fights, keeping bosses and minions at bay with constant pressure to avoid being overwhelmed. Axes will shatter, shield will shatter, and quivers will dry up along the journey – scavenge the battlefield for new weapons before moving on.
Navigate a dark fantasy landscape full of ancient forests, swamps and snow-capped mountains. Sail to new locations filled with dangers and secrets, strange installations of the Imperium, ancient seals of gods and relics of the past. The veil of the Imperium is shaken and old magics are slipping through the cracks. Use the gift of foresight to unite the clans of the region by convincing them of the impending threat or forcing them to follow your cause. War is coming and their strength is needed.
