Solasta Winter Update release date cover

The Solasta Winter Update release date has finally been revealed, and it's sooner than you might think. This brand-new batch of content — along with a release on the GOG store — is all set to arrive next week.

Solasta: Crown of the Magister is a CRPG that will be well-familiar to fans of the classic Dungeons & Dragons computer games. It is, however, set in its own entirely original universe.

The game utilizes the Dungeons & Dragons SRD 5.1 ruleset and it first launched in Steam Early Access back in October of this year. Now, a major post-launch update is on the way — and you'll be able to play it next week.

What's Coming in the Solasta Winter Update?

Many of the details on the Solasta Winter Update are under wraps, but we do know a fair few details. To start, the game is having a major overhaul of its Lighting System. This overhaul will also include a return to the Tabletop Ruleset, giving no disadvantage in Dim Light and allowing Darkvision to work appropriately.

That aside, players will also get to enjoy a new area with a new set of quests which takes place after the Necromancy Main Quest. Players will get to enjoy new combat features, along with a terrifying new MInotaur monster.

This update will also include some quality-of-life improvements, too — a new "Scavenger System" should make it easier to manage all of that junk you're carrying around, combined with improvements to the inventory and shopping systems. The food system has been optimized to make it more difficult to starve, and new customization options in character creation will give you more cosmetic choices for your heroes.
