Temple Run 2 Announced, will launch tonight for iOS

You can finally take a break from running around in your present Temple Run game because the developers have announced a sequel which will launch tonight in the US on the iPhone and iPad. The New Zealand app store already has the game while others will see its presence soon.

Temple Run 2 sticks to the same basic gameplay but this time around boasts sharper graphics, more power-ups, achievements and new organic environments.

Some stages will even have you ride mine carts on zip lines. Similar to the first one, Temple Run 2 will be free-to-play, but unfortunately there’s no word on when it might be making its way to Android devices as well.

The first Temple Run has been downloaded more than 170 million times since its launch back in 2011. The sequel is expected to be received with the same enthusiasm.
