What Is Windjammers 2?

Windjammers 2 is a sports game similar to Disc Jam, but if you haven’t play Disc Jam, then let’s make it clear.

In Windjammers 2, you will play as an athlete with different attributes – based on the character you choose – against an opponent. The goal of the game is to throw the frisbee towards your opponent, and if he/she couldn’t catch it, you will score a point. The winner is the one with the most points at the end of the game.

As said earlier, Windjammers 2 will feature different playable characters will have different attributes. While one can move faster, another character will have better control over the frisbee. The video above will help you understand the game’s rules.

Windjammers 2 will be available in 2021 on PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Stadia, and PC.
