Cultist Simulator Gets Free Content, New Difficulty Settings

Weather Factory has announced that more free content will be coming to Cultist Simulator on January 22nd.

The highlight of this update will be a new, extra hard game mode that is unlocked upon completing the game once. You can find a trailer for the game above.

This new mode tasks you with elevating a previous character to godhood by extinguishing your rival immortals. The update also includes other new challenges and additional story and lore encounters.

Here’s a rundown of the new content:

Key Features:

  • MAJOR VICTORIES: You achieved immortality? Well done. Now, the hard bit. Play as your own Apostle, executing a doomsday plan to make your immortal character something like a god. Pursue the path of Grail, Lantern or Forge. Assemble the Great Feast; open a door into light; or Bring the Dawn.
  • MOAR LORE: Delve even further into the rich lore of Cultist Simulator. What is the Dawnbreaker Device? Where is the flaw in the world to be found? What is the Third Mode of the Tricuspid Gate? Who are the avid, ancient, brilliant women who call themselves the Ligeians… and why are they helping you?
  • IMMORTAL ENEMIES: They’re here to prevent your greater ascension, and add challenge and replay value while they’re at it. These powerful NPCs make Detectives and Rivals look like playground bullies. See your loved ones kidnapped; your finances shredded; your affairs exposed to the public; your dreams become a battleground. Confront them in person, if you dare.

Cultist Simulator is available on Windows PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store for $19.99.
