Team 17 and Moi Rai Games have released the Underworld Update for Monster Sanctuary, which expands the game world and allows players to explore its depths, along with the new monsters and evolutions that it provides.
If you're curious as to what Monster Sanctuary actually is, it is a monster collecting title where players can battle in 3 v 3 turn-based battles in a Metroidvania-esque world. There's a story that goes into the relationship between humanity and the monsters, if that's what you're into.
Players will go down into the forbidden area of Monster Sanctuary, which will give players new areas to explore beneath the Blue Caves. New monsters such as the Promethean and Moccus are added, along with a new evolution for an early game monster, Rockey, called the Megarock.
New skills have also been added such as Counterfeit, Static, and Critical Poison. Items such as Totem, Scythe, and Clear Stone have also been added, and the level cap has been increased to 36 in this update.
For players that want to explore the world in a new and exciting way, there is a grappling ability that will allow players to do so. Grant Towell, Producer, Team17, shared the following thoughts on the update:
“Monster Sanctuary continues to bring a raft of new and exciting content with every update; Underworld, its new monsters, higher level cap, and the expanded exploration capability of the grappling ability come just months after the introduction of endgame player vs. player combat, not to mention areas such as Horizon Beach and the Magma Chamber. We – alongside the community – can’t wait to see where Moi Rai Games takes us to on the next part of the Monster Sanctuary journey.”
