Lesquin, May 31 2023 – NACON and Passtech Games are proud to present the first major update of Ravenswatch. A first for a roguelite, there is the option of solo or cooperative mode with up to 4 players, in a world inspired by well-known folk tales and legends from around the world. On top of a new playable character, this update also brings significant additions such as a second ultimate technique for each hero, as well as improvements to game balance and playability.
Two months after its early access release, Ravenswatch has already amassed more than 200,000 players! The studio has made sure to listen to this powerful community in developing this new version of the game. For players eager to embark on the adventure, Ravenswatch is currently available with a 10% promotion on Steam.
A content-packed update
In this update, Geppetto becomes the seventh fallen hero to join Ravenswatch, along with his puppets. Originating from the famous Pinocchio story, the mad inventor is part melee fighter and part ranged hero. With his ability to summon puppet henchmen to fight for him, this character offers particularly innovative gameplay.
The other Ravenswatch heroes have not been left out. The added features include a new second ultimate skill for them all, just like Geppetto, to expand the list of game techniques available. This addition increases replayability, as well as the possible gameplay options for the same character.
In terms of both game balance and playability, there are other improvements enhancing the experience offered by Ravenswatch. The teleportation system is now less restrictive, and additional dubbing has been added to each hero’s reaction list, to enhance the feeling of immersion. Finally, Ravenswatch has undergone a general rebalance, to ensure the adventure remains as challenging as ever.
