Axiom Verge’s first free update is a Randomizer mode for Speedruns

Must read

Axiom Verge – the critically acclaimed Metroidvania – released its first free content update six years after its release, a Randomizer mode for all speedrunners. Developer Tom Happ is busy working on the sequel Axiom Verge 2, but in recognition of Axiom Verge’s popular speedrunning community, it released a Randomizer mode as a free update.

The mode will allow players to randomize the items they get as they progress through the game. But instead of a simple jumbler, the mode is “smart enough to know that in certain areas you need weapons with certain characteristics to progress. “As with the genre, players will need certain elements to go back and access areas that were previously inaccessible. And the Randomizer will take that into account while adding an element of chaos and difficulty for speedrunners.

Randomizer Mode is currently only available on the Epic Games Store and Steam copies of Axiom Verge, with console release slated for a later date. Epic Games Store users will automatically find a beta version of Axiom Verge with the new mode in their library.

On Steam, players will right click on their copy of Axiom Verge in their library, go to Betas, and select the new version with the Randomizer update.

Happ says it is adding the “finishing touches” to Axiom Verge 2 and that there will be an update soon. Discover the IGNs Axiom Verge review for more.
