One of many promised stretch targets for the sport was Roguelike. Sadly, the code that was created early within the recreation’s growth will not be at present appropriate with this sort of gameplay (particularly a procedurally generated citadel). Attributable to this, we remorse to announce that we’ll not be growing Roguelike as a part of the venture’s deliberate stretch targets.
We all know this can be a mode that a lot of you had been eagerly anticipating and we apologize that we won’t be able to make it occur as deliberate.
On the upside, it will get replaced with a brand new recreation mode referred to as “Randomizer” which launches alongside Zangetsu totally free.
Randomizer is the story marketing campaign you’re used to, however with a twist. Earlier than beginning a recreation, gamers can select as much as eight totally different recreation parameters to be randomized in the course of the playthrough.
“Boss Revenge” mode will comply with these content material updates.
Final however not least is a quick replace in regards to the Swap model. Though the earlier replace was the final one targeted solely on efficiency, enhancements will proceed to be rolled out to make the expertise as clean as potential:
Swap gamers might have already seen the 1.04 replace that went reside in January. Whereas this was the final Swap replace targeted totally on efficiency, we aren’t completed working to enhance the platform. Swap has come a great distance since launch and we’re proud of the progress it has made, however there may be nonetheless extra to do (particularly in giant rooms/dragon towers). We’ll regularly roll out enhancements together with content material updates to make the expertise as clean as potential
The Swap model of the sport is now additionally in step with different platforms, which means future updates for all programs might be simpler to handle:
Swap 1.04 introduced all of the platforms (PC, PS4, Xbox and Swap) into ‘Content material Parity’, which is a elaborate technique to say that all of them have the identical stuff. This was an enormous milestone for the sport. When all of the platforms are on the identical place, it makes future updates simpler to handle. The manufacturing groups can all work on the identical content material and launch updates on a schedule with shorter gaps between them.
