New free DLC released for monster summoning action-roguelike Sword of the Necromancer

You may have stumbled through the monster summoning roguelike worlds of Sword of the Necromancer previously, but now those behind it – Grimorio of Games and JanduSoft – are enhancing the overall experience by throwing out a host of new enemies, additional challenges and a new story chapter… and all for free.

Available today on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC as a free update to Sword of Necromancer comes the Extra Modes DLC with it introducing three new game modes to put your skills to test. But further to that comes the chance to face off against 10 new monsters and 8 new bosses, whilst the chance to complete the Extra modes will also unlock the Epilogue, a new chapter in the story.

As a base experience, Sword of the Necromancer is a dungeon-crawler action-RPG with roguelike elements where you can revive your defeated enemies to make them fight alongside you. When it released in January 2021 it offered up the opportunity to turn your foes into allies using the forbidden powers of the Sword of the Necromancer and help the rogue Tama reach the dungeon’s depths in order to gain enough power to bring her beloved priestess Koko back from the dead. What this meant was that you would spend the time gathering up a small army of monsters, equipping yourself with weapons and relics, and levelling up to take on the guardians that stand between you and your goal.

Now though there’s more, with all of the following rolling out…

  • Challenge Mode – Revisit the base game with a randomized twist. In this new mode you will advance through the five floors of the dungeon as usual, but stay vigilant for new enemies and unexpected encounters!
  • Colosseum Mode – Test your mettle against hordes of enemies! Starting from level 1 and without any items, defy death as you take on waves of enemies to advance. Chain combos will be key to your survival; the bigger your combo meter, the more XP you will earn and the better the items you will find!
  • Boss Rush – Fight against 5 bosses with no breaks! Fight against tougher bosses (both old and new) in quick succession, with your current adventuring supplies. Level up and gear up to face them! If you complete this mode, you will unlock one of the original bosses as a summon!
  • Dungeon Builder – Build and play custom dungeon floors! Create a floor layout, choose the enemies you want to appear and select the boss guarding the exit. You can even choose what items will appear in chests and their properties, so you can set yourself a unique challenge or share a fiendish floor with a friend. Share your creations via a simple text code!
  • Item Shop – When playing the new modes, you will earn Symbols that you can exchange for items in the Item Shop. The item offer will change daily and is the same for all players each day. This feature can help you unlock all of the weapon and relic types, a useful tool for achievement hunters!
  • Epilogue – Complete the new Extra modes to unlock a new chapter in the story!

If you haven’t yet played Sword of the Necromancer, now might be the best time to get involved. You’ll find the game present on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC through Steam.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
