It’s been a long time coming, but the day’s finally here. Back on Halloween 2018, Toby Fox released Deltarune Chapter 1, the first installment of his successor to the wildly popular indie RPG Undertale. Players can venture back to the Dark World with Kris, Susie, Ralsei, and Lancer when Deltarune Chapter 2 launches on PC and Mac on September 17. Here are all the essential details you’ll need to be among the first to experience this new adventure.
Deltarune Chapter 2 release time
Deltarune Chapter 2 will be available on PC and Mac on September 17, 2021 at 8 p.m. Eastern. If you’re not on the East Coast, that translates to 7 p.m. Central, 6 p.m. Mountain, and 5 p.m. Pacific.
If you’re outside the continental United States, you can figure out when Deltarune Chapter 2 will release in your region here.
How do I transfer a Deltarune Chapter 1 save file?
You’ll need to play on a Mac or PC that has existing completion data. Completion data is generated when you see the credits of Chapter 1. That means you have to go to sleep in your bed at the end of the game.
If you played Deltarune Chapter 1 on another device, like your Switch or PS4, you won’t be able to transfer save data. However, Fox says this shouldn’t affect your enjoyment of the story too much. In an FAQ post about Chapter 2, he notes:
“You can play Chapter 2 without save data from Chapter 1. As long as you generally remember what happened story-wise, you'll be fine.”
Throughout Deltarune Chapter 1, the in-game dialogue repeatedly reminds you that your choices don’t matter. That’s a big departure from Undertale, where seemingly trivial actions like buying a donut at a bake sale can have an impact far later on in the game. While there may be some small changes for those playing with existing save data, it seems Deltarune won’t have wildly divergent story routes like its predecessor.
Is Deltarune Chapter 2 on PS4, Xbox, or Switch?
Not yet, and Fox hasn’t revealed when console ports will be available. That said, Undertale is available on all three console platforms, and the first chapter of Deltarune is playable on PS4 and Switch. It’s likely Deltarune Chapter 2 will be available on PS4 and Switch in the coming months as well.
Chapter 1 also came to Mac and PC first, and became available on consoles three months after the initial launch. That means we can expect to see Deltarune Chapter 2 on PS4 and Switch sometime around December 2021 or January 2022.
