For those who’ve been spending time in the gothic side-scrolling world of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, things are really looking up as the 2020 roadmap full of free content and features are now unveiled.
In celebration of reaching over one million sales, 505 Games and ArtPlay have provided a sneak peek of their development roadmap for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night throughout the rest of this year. Starting on 23rd June, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC players will be treated to a Boss Revenge Mode and increased character customisation with the Chroma Wheel feature at no extra cost. Following that, a steady stream of free content and features are set to arrive as the year progresses, aiming to enhance the overall game experience and offer more ways to interact with Koji Igarashi’s critically-acclaimed indie debut title.
Here are more details on the aforementioned DLC, which is also expected to launch on Nintendo Switch at some point in July:
- Boss Revenge Mode: Players can thank the Kickstarter community for this new free gameplay mode in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night – a direct result of community support in helping the game surpass its final $5.5M stretch funding goal. In this mode, accessible by entering the transition room in-game, players will face off against four in-game bosses fast and furiously to get the best clear time.
- Chroma Wheel: The salon is back in business with more options than ever in color palette for character customisation, including hair, clothing, and skin. Players can return to Todd the Barber, Bloodstained’s demonic scissor-wielding hair stylist, and switch up their look with a true colour selector and eliminating pre-set options previously available.
