Dandara, a Metroidvania platformer released back in 2018, has just received a free content update. The Trials of Fear Edition update adds a bunch of new stuff including new bosses, extra areas, new powers to use, and plenty more. You can grab the update right now across all the platforms Dandara is on.

Trials of Fear adds a big new boss for you to fight as well as three new areas to explore. You'll also find new powers waiting for you to try out on your enemies. There's extra music to look forward to, as well as a new secret ending to unlock. Developer Long Hat House is being cagey on how exactly you unlock that ending. Make sure you're extra-cautious when you're re-exploring Dandara's world (or heading in for the first time). You can check out the launch trailer for Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition right here:

Trials of Fear also brings a couple more goodies to Dandara. Long Hat House is promising "a whole new focus on story" in the update, fleshing out the game's lore and its characters. You'll find new dialogue, cutscenes, and descriptions in-game. There's also a new keyboard-and-mouse control scheme if you're playing on PC. This could be particularly helpful given the game's focus on precision aiming.

You can get Trials of Fear right now if you own Dandara; it's a completely free content update on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. The game is also currently sitting at 60% off on Steam and is discounted on other platforms, so now's the time to check it out if you've been on the fence.
