One of the biggest games coming to the Meta Quest platform in 2023 has to be Asgard’s Wrath 2. Continuing the story from the original 2019 Oculus Rift game, this time around there will be new locations to discover and gameplay modes to enjoy. These are detailed in a new Asgard’s Wrath 2 deep dive trailer released by Meta.
Helming the deep dive is Oculus Studios Senior Game Producer Mari Kyle who explains that due to the events of Asgard’s Wrath, you’re now a Cosmic Guardian. You have evolved into this new entity thanks to The Weavers of Fate, using your new powers to find and stop Loki. It’s your job to ensure he doesn’t upset the balance of the universe.

“You’re now a foreign god in this strange new realm that you have no experience in,” Kyle starts to explain. “In Asgard’s Wrath, you were used to the Norse realm: You know all the characters, you know the creatures that were gonna come out and the heroes. Asgard’s Wrath 2, it’s a whole new realm. In order to track down Loki, you’ll need allies who are familiar with the land, the tales, and the weapons of ancient Egypt, so you’ll gain ally gods in the form of ancient Egyptian gods that you may already be familiar with, and with their help as well as the help of the mortal heroes, you’ll be able to navigate ancient Egypt to find Loki and set things right.”
This is all part of the main narrative quest, which Sanzaru Games says should offer around 60 hours of gameplay. Furthermore, Kyle reveals that the game will include an asynchronously social dungeon-crawling mode. As the Cosmic Guardian, players will take part in an ongoing battle that evolves over time.
