The Architect returns and Curio Shoppes have also been added.
Cellar Door Games has released its second big update for Rogue Legacy 2, adding a new biome, the Stygian Study, and two new classes, Gunslinger and Assassin. With this update, the developer has confirmed that overall content in the sequel has surpassed the first game (barring New Game+ aspects) and there’s more to come. Check out the video below to see the new content in action.
The Stygian Study is described as the “beating heart of the kingdom” and focused on research. It can be explored at any time during one’s journey. As for the new classes, Gunslinger is about shooting down foes with bullets while Assassin is a glass cannon that can also cloak. Other new additions include the return of the Architect who lets you replay a previous world and attempt to clear previous challenges. Of course, this becomes more expensive with each attempt.
Curio Shoppes have also been added and are encountered randomly. These allow for swapping weapons, spells and talents, though they’re described as “hugely experimental” and may be available for a limited time. If all of this wasn’t enough, the difficulty has also been rebalanced slightly especially with stuff like Heirloom Challenges. Check out the full patch notes here for more details.
