The first DLC pack for side-scrolling Metroidvania game Blasphemous has been announced. Blasphemous: The Stir of Dawn will add a number of new features to the game and launches this August.
The Stir of Dawn will add the "True Calvary" mode, a New Game Plus mode that allows you to take on the Blasphemous main story mode with a number of variants and difficulty modifiers. There's also a new story sequence that will only be available as part of True Calvary mode in which the Penitent One awakens an ancestral power forgotten by The Miracle. The devs have also redesigned the map screen and implemented a number of other usability improvements, as well as introducing new teleports, new NPCs, and extra areas. You can take a look at the trailer for Blasphemous: The Stir of Dawn right here:
A number of basic improvements have also been made to the Penitent One's skills, items, and animations, including a bunch of new execution animations. Lastly, the first DLC will feature a full Castillian Spanish voiceover cast, a feature oft-requested by the community. The devs say they don't want to introduce all the new features in the DLC right now, so there will be more coming in the future. The Stir of Dawn launches for Blasphemous on August 4th and will be a completely free update for all players across every platform. Not bad considering the amount of new content that's being added. If you haven't checked out Blasphemous yet, now seems the perfect time to do so.
