Rogue Legacy 2 update The Arcane Hollows is the title's second content update, pushing Rogue Legacy 2 above Rogue Legacy 1 in terms of raw content (outside of New Game +). Basically, Cellar Door Games have stated that there are still two more content patches planned for the title, with more biomes, bosses, and lots of other stuff still cooking in the oven, so players will have to keep their eyes peeled for two more big updates coming their way soon, with the game still in early access.

What's in Rogue Legacy 2's The Arcane Hallows Update?

With the newest patch comes the Stygian Study, which is the fourth biome to come to the game. The study is the beating heart of the kingdom and acts as a epicenter of research and progress. The Stygian Study can be entered out of sequence and explored at any time, but you'll have to be prepared for it or it will beat you into the ground.

Two new classes have been added: the Gunslinger and the Assassin. The Gunslinger unleashes a hail of bullets on their foes, turning them into Swiss cheese. The Assassin uses a cloaking ability, coming in and out of danger and unleashing a rapid three-strike attack.

The Architect returns, and with it comes the ability to lock down your previous world so you can play it again. Players will be able to practice against bosses or try taking on Fairy Room Challenges for a second time. While it's a cool mechanic, it also doesn't come cheaply: every time the player uses the Architect it costs more each time to explore a locked world, so be careful.

If you would like to check out Rogue Legacy 2, it is available in Steam's Early Access for $17.99 at the moment. It's also 10% off, which is pretty nice.
