Publisher The Arcade Crew and developer Berzerk Studio announced a Halloween update for Infernax.
Infernax is getting a big Halloween update on October 25th, which adds the new playable character “The Stranger.”
Here’s a rundown on the new update:
Introducing The Stranger, a deadly force to be reckoned with, armed with a shotgun and a multitude of blunt objects capable of producing extremely satisfying levels of gore as you take out your enemies. The Stranger is unlockable off the bat by starting a new save file.
Demon slayers eager to trade a mace for firepower can unlock The Stranger by naming a new save file’s character “stranger”. You’ll then don your sweet hockey mask, fully ready to face horrors beyond the kin of man, and hopefully turn them into a bloody pulp using your not so medieval arsenal of unlikely weapons. The badass shotgun that the Stranger comes equipped with packs a serious punch, both to the receiver and the giver. So be wary of where you use it ‘cause the kickback is real y’all. Wouldn’t want you to fall into the abyss right after exploding some demonic vermin; that would be a real shame.
With secrets to unlock, powerful abilities to learn, and an assortment of spells in your arsenal, you’ll be ready to face whatever lurks in the shadows and truly give em’ hell. Along the way, your morals will be tested by difficult choices that will shape not only the fate of Upel, but the fate of The Stranger or Alcedor themselves, leading to different gameplay paths. The challenge that lies ahead is not for the faint of heart, but Infernax offers both a classic hardcore mode and a more forgiving (but no less challenging) casual mode, for maximum enjoyment no matter how you play.
Here’s a trailer for the new update:
Infernax has been available for Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4. In case you missed it, you can find our thorough review on the game here!
