gonner2 xbox

Life is a rollercoaster, isn’t it? We checked the Xbox Game Pass app last week to receive a message that GONNER was leaving the service, and had a weary sigh. It was a colourful, violent, hella good time, and we were going to have to part ways. Then lo! GONNER2 strides up to October, says hol’ up, and arrives completely free for anyone with Game Pass. Winner winner, chicken dinner! GONNER2 is out now on Xbox One to purchase as well as via Game Pass, Switch and PC via Steam.

If you haven’t played GONNER yet, this is a great point to hop on. There’s no arcing narrative or continued progression here, there’s just a rollicking good time, so playing GONNER is not a prerequisite. 

GONNER2 seems like GONNER, but juiced up royally. This is still the procedurally generated, hyperactive platform-shooter with rogue-ish elements from before, but with the scale, speed, action and collectibles amped up. Upgrade yourself and festoon your body with guns and heads (Yes! More heads!), then take down some feisty looking enemies in acrobatic swoops. 

The headline for GONNER2 is the introduction of up to four-player co-op. The original was crying out for this, being such a ridiculous and fun time, so it’s great to see it here. You’ll cooperatively clear the random levels, and it looks like we might be getting Castle Crasher-levels of joy from it. 


  • Intense platformer shooter action
  • A bunch of heads, guns and upgrades that you can combine in a prodedural world
  • 4 player local coop and PvP Death Match arena.

You can probably tell that we’re on board, but we were converts in the first place. The only thing to do is give it a whirl on Xbox Game Pass, and see if it does it for you too. 

GONNER2 is out now on Xbox One and Game Pass and will cost you £10.74. It’s also out on Switch and PC via Steam. Our review of GONNER2 on Xbox One will be with you soon too. 

Game Description:

In GONNER2, our altruistic and unexpected hero Ikk is back! And this time Death needs his help. Her lair has been taken over by a mysterious presence and she needs Ikk to take it down. Journey your way through deep dark chaotic places with sparks of unimaginable colour and crazy bosses, all while trying to literally keep your head!! GONNER2 is a procedurally generated platformer with roguelike elements that will keep you on your toes – now with more added, colour and chaos!
