Developer Dead Mage has released a free content update for Children of Morta across all platforms.
The ‘Shrine of Challenge’ DLC adds a hard mode to the game alongside a host of extra content. This includes new enemies and items as well as a series of tweaks.
Hard mode makes enemies considerably tougher to fight with increased health and damage, but also ensures that players get access to better rewards for defeating them.
The studio promises that ‘Shrine of Challenge’ is just the first in a series of free content updates. More DLC will be introduced in the coming months according to this video roadmap.
Xbox users can play the game for free if they are Xbox Game Pass subscribers. The title was added to the service in January and it should remain there for at least a few more months.
OnlySP’s Amy Davidson reviewed Children of Morta, awarding it the coveted High Distinction (5/5). She said that the game “will be remembered as the gold standard for years to come.”
