The Bergson's Return
More hacking and slashing is in the future for the Bergson family, much to the enjoyment to fans of the action-packed dungeon crawling adventure, Children of Morta.
Today, Children of Morta publisher 11-bit studios announced that several new pieces of content will arrive for the game in 2020. Six different free chunks of content will be available at no extra charge, while a larger and more substantial offering in the form of a new chapter will be paid DLC.
The first piece of free DLC is called the Shrine of Challenge, which includes a new "hard difficulty" mode. Additionally, players will have access to new Charms, Divine Graces, and Divine Relics, which are sure to give you a needed boost on the battlefield. Following Shrine of Challenge update is Setting Sun Inn, which includes a New Game+ option for players who have completed Child of Morta. This carries over just about all of your progress from your completed campaign, including characters and unlocked upgrades.
Following New Game+ is an update called Bergson's House, which adds another character to play - although we don't know if said character is part of the Bergson family or not. Next comes The Fellowship Sanctuary, introducing an online cooperative mode in Children of Morta.
Later in 2020 is the Temple of the Endless update, featuring the eponymous Endless Mode, where players fight wave after wave of enemies and bosses. The final free DLC is the Treasure Update and adds even more Charms, Divine Graces, and Divine Relics, similar to the Shrine of Challenge update. 11-bit studios also hinted at a random encounter, but there weren't any details on this. It might tease at even more free DLC, however.
The most sizable of these updates is The Uncharted Lands, which comes in the form of paid content. According to a press release, this pack includes "a brand new DLC chapter with a main quest and a home event, another playable hero, new enemies, and a new boss."
There's a lot to look forward to if you're a fan of Children of Morta. If you're on the fence about this game, developed by Dead Mage, you can check out our review.
