Ready for more pop culture references?

Ready Player Two, the long-awaited sequel to Ready Player One also by Ernest Cline, just launched today on November 24, 2020. If you were a fan of the original novel, this is the book for you. Even if you’ve only watched the movie by Steven Spielberg, this is the chance for you to read what happens next. And then spend the next couple of years waiting for the movie, but that’s the price you pay.

How to Play Ready Player Two

Think of this as the prequel movie.

You can purchase the e-book version of Ready Player Two for Kindle on Amazon for $14.99. If you want to splurge a bit though, you can get the hardcover edition also on Amazon right now for $18.61 (36% off full price). There’s just something about the feel of paper between your fingers that provides a different experience than flipping through an e-book. Plus, you don’t have to worry about screen resolution with a physical book. The only thing you have to worry about is font size.

Or if you like hearing Wil Wheaton narrate your Ready Player Two experience, you can get the audiobook version also on Amazon. The audiobook is free with an Audible free trial, which lasts for a whopping 30 days before you have to pay anything. Of course, it’s $14.95 a month afterwards, but that’s expected. You are paying for Wil Wheaton’s calmly annoying voice, don’t you know?

And paying to annoy Sheldon Cooper to boot.

Imagine Wil Wheaton’s voice as he narrates Ready Player Two‘s synopsis:

Days after winning OASIS founder James Halliday’s contest, Wade Watts makes a discovery that changes everything.

Hidden within Halliday’s vaults, waiting for his heir to find, lies a technological advancement that will once again change the world and make the OASIS a thousand times more wondrous—and addictive—than even Wade dreamed possible.
With it comes a new riddle, and a new quest—a last Easter egg from Halliday, hinting at a mysterious prize.
And an unexpected, impossibly powerful, and dangerous new rival awaits, one who’ll kill millions to get what he wants.
Wade’s life and the future of the OASIS are again at stake, but this time the fate of humanity also hangs in the balance.

And then imagine Sheldon Cooper’s scream of rage afterwards, and your experience will be complete.


The long-awaited sequel to Ready Player One by Ernest Cline is out right now. Its name? Ready Player Two. If you’re a fan of either the original book or the critically acclaimed movie version, get it today on Amazon. Let the game begin again.
