To kick off Early Access, Rogue Snail is unrolling special game mode content:

- Friendship Adventures: Through the single player story mission Friendship Adventures, players can delve deeper into the Hunters’ stories and lore. The Early Access Launch debuts the Friendship Adventure “Keytar Hero” to unlock Raff, the team’s engineer musician, and “Ace of Hearts” for Ace, the team’s jetpacking pilot donkey.
- New Relics: Three new powerful Relics —The Thunder Hammer, The Cross, and The Obsidian Cat—can be uncovered and equipped to deal massive damage.
