Aeternum Game Studios has announced a release date for Aeterna Noctis free DLC “Pit of the Damned.”
The new “Pit of the Damned” post-launch downloadable content is launching on May 22nd across all supported platforms.
Here’s a rundown on the new content, plus a trailer:
The next DLC for this fast-paced Metroidvania will be available for free on all platforms, adding dozens of hours of combat and exploration. The new trailer shows everything players can expect from this new downloadable content:
In a month, Steam, Nintendo, PlayStation and Xbox players will be able to download the DLC completely free of charge. Among the new features that the “Pit of the Damned” brings, there are two new game areas that expand the gaming experience. Access to these new levels is completely organic, and both are integrated naturally with the other areas, being accessible from the first hours of the game
The DLC also introduces a new roster of enemies for the King of Darkness to face in order to uncover the secrets of the new areas, including new boss fights. One of the great successes of Aeterna Noctis is the possibility of customizing our playstyle by equipping ourselves with gems that extend and modify different attributes passively and actively. The “Pit of the Damned” expands the list of available gems by adding 6 new ones, some of them created at the request of the gaming community.
Another of the most important additions in this DLC are the timed trials with an interesting multiplayer and cross-platform function. From the offices of Aeternum Game Studios, they ensure that the timed trials allow players to compete against each other and highlight their name among world statistics. You will have to work hard to get the best score on each trial and enter the top 10!
Aeterna Noctis has been available across Windows PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. In case you missed it, you can find our thorough review on the game here.
