Dread Templar December Update Now Available

Dread Templar

T19 Games have released the Dread Templar December update, bringing new content to their retro-inspired FPS that is currently still in Early Access.

The Dread Templar December update is actually the first part of the game’s 4th content update since entering Early Access. The update was originally meant to be two new levels, but the developers decided to release just one at a time to reduce the wait between updates. The rest of the 4th content update will be released soon.

This update adds the Dead Sails level, along with 4 new enemies, 2 new golden emblems and 4 new silver emblems, a side area, a super-secret area, and a new music track. You can read more about the update here, and find a trailer for it below.
