And It's Coming as a Free Update

The Children of Morta Shrine of Challenge Update has been revealed as a brand-new batch of free content adding in even more stuff for fans to enjoy.

Check out this trailer to see some of the new features in motion:

 
 

If you're unfamiliar with Children of Morta, this delightful action-RPG tells the tale of the Bergson clan. This family of fighters has mostly lived their lives in peace, but a terrible darkness is making its return once again. It's up to the six Bergsons to band together and fight back against this terrible evil before it destroys the land!

The game has been out for a little while now, and things are about to get even better with the debut of the Children of Morta Shrine of Challenge update.

What's Coming in the Children of Morta Shrine of Challenge Update?

So, what can you expect to see in the Shrine of Challenge update?

The big-ticket item for this free update is Hard Mode, an even harder way to play an already challenging game. Simply put, this increases enemy damage and their health, brutally punishing mistakes and making it harder to take them down. On the upside, they'll also dole out more XP when defeated.

Two new items and 18 new items will be making their debut. The Dark Blade and Mech Constructor will give players new foes to face, and the new items are sure to add a little more variety to the game.

Some of these new items are seen in the image above. For example, the Soothing Obelisks Divine Grace will heal you when you activate Obelisks — if you're lucky enough to find it.

You can play the Children of Morta Shrine of Challenge update right now! If you don't own the game, you can get it for the PC on Steam, the Humble Store, and DRM-free on GOG at the price of $21.99 or your regional equivalent. Console players can get it at the Microsoft Store, PlayStation Store, and Nintendo eShop for their respective systems. You can also get a physical copy of the game on Amazon.
