About Shoppe Keep 2
Shoppe Keep 2, the much-anticipated sequel to the 2015 original, will launch in Early Access for PC, Mac and Linux on 26th April 2018.
The new game will expand upon the unique concept and gameplay of the original Shoppe Keep. Players will be tasked with running and growing their own fantasy store, selling armor, weapons and potions to adventurers and NPCs - but this time they won't be alone.
Shoppe Keep 2 will be introducing a brand-new feature: online multiplayer, which will see players teaming up with friends in order to run a store together. Shoppe Keep 2 will also feature a diverse open world for players to explore, full of dangerous creatures to hunt and rare loot to find-all of which feed into the titular Shoppe Keeping. Take on a venomous spider and sell its poison, or hunt for special loot that will make quite the profit.
With players themselves adventuring this time around, they will also need to prepare themselves with armor, weapons, and potions-which is why every single item that can be sold to customers can also be equipped or used by the player character.
To keep up to date with everything Shoppe Keep 2, players should add the game to their Steam wishlist.
