The first major Loop Hero update has released focusings on player feedback, new tiles, enemies, and quality of life improvements. It has also reached an important milestone, with 800k people playing the indie hit. 

What's in the Loop Hero Update?

  • Save On The Go: Players will now be able to save and exit the game in the middle of an expedition, which is great for those who like chipping away at games bit by bit.
  • Perks Deck: A new option that will lock boss perks so they don't drop into the expedition perk pool.
  • Escape From Battle: Will allow heroes to escape from battles with 30% of your resources.
  • Speed Up: Think the game is too slow? Don't worry: you can now change expedition speeds to be 4x as fast or battles to be 2.5x faster.
  • Inventory Management: Items can now be locked in your inventory by right-clicking on them. Better safe than sorry, right?
  • Deck Switching: Decks can now be switched in perks menus, cards, or supplies.
  • New Tiles and Enemies: 3 new tiles and 2 new enemies have been added to the game. The devs want players to find them, so good luck.

Noclip and the Loop Hero developers have also released a documentary that charts "the creation of Loop Hero, from Ludum Dare game jam to Steam best seller!" If you haven't checked it out yet, check it out below:
