Kenshi 2 in development: When can it be expected?

Kenshi 2 Ready To Release? Kenshi is a video game set in a post-apocalyptic world. It was designed by Chris Hunt and developed by Lo-Fi Games. The gameplay allows the players to roam freely and do whatever they like. It’s up to you whether you choose to be a thief, farmer, rebel, adventurer, trader, bounty hunter. Most importantly, you have to fight for your survival.  The storyline isn’t linear, and there is so much to uncover in the game.

The game has had its successful run in a very short period of time. It has also garnered quite high ratings on Steam and other platforms. With that said, we can’t wait to get our hands on Kenshi 2!

Kenshi 2 Release Date

The first version of Kenshi was released on 6 December 2018. It took nearly twelve years to create and develop this game. Ever since its success, Kenshi 2 has been under development. For now, we can only anticipate the release of the game further since no official announcement has been made for its release. Yet, a lot of sources are hoping for a 2021 release.

 Kenshi 2 and its Development Process

As we await more news on Kenshi 2, Steam gives out monthly updates on the game and how the team is managing work from home during the pandemic.

Kenshi 2 and its Technical Advancements

The team’s new Technical Artist Victor Goossens has laid out an explanation of how they’re planning to improve the gaming experience,

“…The plan is for Kenshi 2 to be graphically above and beyond anything we could ever do in Ogre, and I’m here to make sure that we can actually pull that off… Kenshi 2’s new Time-of-Day system, and primarily, its clouds! Kenshi’s fully dynamic lighting and environment is a massive challenge to represent properly, and it means things like clouds just cannot be left static. Kenshi’s new clouds grow, move and morph over time – all without melting your graphics card! Next up is just about every other material in Kenshi…”
