SYNTHETIK 2, sequel to the critically acclaimed tactical roguelite SYNTHETIK, has just recently gone into Early Access and features modding support powered by mod.io. Read on to learn more about SYNTHETIK 2 and how mod.io will support a new set of community creators!


SYNTHETIK 2 is the sequel to the well-received and fondly loved SYNTHETIK, a hardcore tactical shooter that sees you fighting an overwhelming machine menace as one of the last survivors of the human resistance. Experimentation and the roguelite gameplay loop place an emphasis on builds and customisable play, with many different playstyles available to learn and master.

The sequel brings a lot of new features to the table - the usual suite of extra levels, story content, and new weapons, as well as a move to full 3D and technology allowing for explosive physics and environmental destruction. Given SYNTHETIK's emphasis on satisfying and bombastic gunplay, these features are sure to factor in to the enjoyment present within the highly-refined gameplay loop.

Roguelites and roguelikes are both perfect basins for modding support, and via mod.io, SYNTHETIK 2 has embraced the possibilities of encouraging a creator community. Modders will have the option to add in a host of new features to enhance the try-and-try-again loop in the games, such as new weaponry, classes, and difficulty modifiers. It's still early days for the game's modding community, but new items, perks, and more are also on the table for modders to mould the direction SYNTHETIK 2's gameplay will take its playerbase.

Both SYNTHETIK 2 and its predecessor sit at positive review scores. The first in the series experienced a great deal of post-launch support and even its own spinoff in the form of the free-to-play SYNTHETIK: Arena. It seems likely, then, that SYNTHETIK 2 will enjoy a similar level of expansion, though with mods on the table, SYNTHETIK 2 look ready to push the franchise further than ever before.

Roguelikes, with all the factors that play into making each run new and unique, especially benefit from modding support that enhances the level of customisation for each player


Both SYNTHETIK and its sequel are currently on sale, with the older game at 75% off and the new release at a pleasant 10% launch discount. With the sequel in Early Access, now's as good a time as any to get involved in helping to shape the future of the franchise, and try out some of the mods on mod.io for yourself.
