Free Curious Expedition 2 Update May 2021 cover

A free Curious Expedition 2 update is arriving in a couple of weeks, delivering a fresh injection of new content for all players to enjoy including a strange new biome, tons of new events, and more.

Curious Expedition 2 is a sequel to 2016's Curious Expedition. Both games provide players with a turn-based roguelite game with a strong focus on narrative where you can explore procedurally-generated worlds filled with strange creatures in even stranger lands.

The sequel has had several notable upgrades over the original including 4K graphics and weekly online competitions. Now, a batch of interesting new content is on the way in the first major post-launch update — and it will be here before the end of the month.

What's New in the Free Curious Expedition 2 Update?

The first major addition in the free Curious Expedition 2 update is a new game mode that will bring back some of the roguelite gameplay of the original. You'll have to complete a chain of expeditions with the goal of acquiring as much fame as possible.

A new "chaotic and unfriendly" biome is being added to the game, and that's not the only new addition — a new masked tribe is also arriving in this update. This new tribe will be related to the fog, although the developer hasn't gone into much more detail on that front.

Naturally, this update will also have new events, locations, enemies, items, and recruitable characters for you to enjoy in your adventures. Sadly, that's about all we know after today's announcement; Maschinen-Mensch is keeping most details about the first post-launch update under wraps until we get closer to its release.
