Square Enix has released a new update for The DioField Chronicle, bringing some fresh content to the strategy RPG. Update 1.2 adds seven new missions into the game, as well as a higher difficulty option for strategists who wish to test their mettle, a new boss, and more.
We first learned about this update back in December, but now that it's upon us, we've got some extra information about it. The new story content revolves around Waltaquin Redditch, following the events from her joining the Blue Fox up to Chapter 5. You can look forward to five new main missions and two new sub-missions to tackle.
Waltaquin's story comes with a new camp area, a new Mind Map system that lets you explore her choices throughout the story, and, of course, a new weapon type for her to utilize. Magic Tomes add Necromancy to the world of The DioField Chronicle, allowing you to summon fearsome skeletons and transform your enemies into Skeletal Dragons.
There's plenty in this update for you if you thought The DioField Chronicle could stand to be a little harder, too. You'll find a brand new boss, the Behemoth, to face off against, and Square Enix says this will be the game's most deadly foe to date. There's also a new Very Hard difficulty mode, as well as an Extra Mode for New Game+, which adjusts enemy levels, attack power, and more.
You can download The DioField Chronicle update 1.2 right now. If you're yet to pick the game up, it's available on PC, PlayStation consoles, Xbox platforms, and Nintendo Switch. Unlike many strategy RPGs, The DioField Chronicle's battles play out in real time, but you'll still need to have your tactical head on if you're going to prevail, especially if you're intending to give the new Very Hard difficulty mode a try.
