Shoppe Keep 2 - Release Date Announced With New Trailer!

The much-anticipated Shoppe Keep 2, with all new online multiplayer, is fast approaching. Today, we are announcing that the game is set for an Early Access release on 26th April 2018, and we are delighted to be able to share a brand new trailer. Take a watch to see two business hopefuls set up Shoppe, in the game’s multiplayer.

Shoppe Keep returns bigger and better than ever! Build a business empire, battle mobs and monsters. It’s merchandising mayhem as you attempt to sell all sorts of fantastical stock to make your millions. Welcome to the world of Shoppe Keep 2, Customerania - a whimsical open world surrounded by rolling countryside, packed full of quaint little houses, six foot spiders, voracious wolves, angry mobs and of course your new Shoppe. Shoppe Keep 2 is a single player and multiplayer enhanced merchant simulator, inspired by the NPCs we know and love from classic RPGs and MMOs. While adventurers and rogues are out slaying dangerous beasts and selling an alarming amount of stolen plates, cheese and bread, it’s you, our trusty merchant who is keeping their shelves stocked.

Developer Strangefire have taken the original concept and gameplay that made Shoppe Keep so popular, and enhanced it. In addition, the new multiplayer option will see you teaming up with friends to run your retail empire together. Brand new to Shoppe Keep 2 is a diverse open world to explore with dangerous creatures to hunt and rare but valuable loot to find – all adding to the Shoppe Keeping experience. You can, for example, tackle a venomous spider and sell its poison. All ultimately adding to the profit of the fantasy business.

This time around you'll also have the ability to equip and use the armour, weapons and potions that you can find on the shelves of your own retail emporium.

We are encouraging original Shoppe Keep fans and new players alike to take a look at this new trailer and show your support by adding the game to your Steam wishlist.
