Bloodstained DLC remains to be taking place, and a brand new playable character is subsequent



‘Our subsequent replace will introduce a brand new playable character to the sport’
Bloodstained has had a very fascinating run to this point. It has these two implausible, nearly universally beloved spinoffs, and one very polarizing predominant entry. Not solely was the Kickstarter itself divisive, however the sport, most notably the Change port, has been the topic of scrutiny since launch. That was over two years in the past. Now the staff remains to be having technical points with Bloodstained DLC.
In an replace for backers, IGA and the staff set folks’s expectations for the upcoming content material updates. IGA mentions “technical points which have slowed down [the] manufacturing timetable, they usually nonetheless don’t have a launch window. Plus, issues have modified when it comes to the content material cadence.
IGA says that the subsequent Bloodstained DLC replace would be the new playable character, which is a shift from the prior plan. He supplies one other tease, noting: “We are able to affirm that this new character is NOT from the world of Bloodstained. We have now been working intently with a widely known companion to deliver their character (and a pal) into the sport.” So Shovel Knight? It’s at all times Shovel Knight!
IGA confirms you could “discover your complete map,” although totally different parts of it will likely be gated otherwise relying on what skills you’ve picked up: as a result of the character is inherently totally different. It’ll additionally degree as much as some extent, with “rank and sophistication” will increase.
After that, we’ve got the chaos mode “with co-op,” in addition to Vs mode with multiplayer. So there’s nonetheless fairly a number of issues to ship on, utilizing this old-school prolonged Kickstarter sport timetable.
Ultimately, Shovel Knight took a number of years to complete all their stretch objectives, however the sport ended up turning into an all-time basic. Bloodstained, at some point, may clear up all its technical issues and have an analogous popularity. For some folks although, it’s already a basic.
