Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, the spiritual successor to the Castlevania series, will receive plenty of post-launch DLC.
Publisher 505 Games has confirmed the post-release DLC roadmap for Koji Igarashi’s upcoming action adventure game, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. The game – which is a thematic follow-up to the Castlevania series – will be released on PC and console next month following a successful crowd-funding campaign, and five years of development.
Post launch DLC will include a boss rush mode, two new playable characters, and online and speedrun modes. Here’s the full list of treats in store.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night – Post-launch DLC
- Speedrun mode
- Pure Miriam outfit
- Boss Rush Mode
- Online & local co-op and vs. mode
- Roguelike mode
- 2 additional playable characters
- Chaos mode
- Classic mode
- Boss revenge mode
Paid DLC will also be available in the form of Iga’s Back Pack. The $10 update will allow players to take on Koji Igarashi and earn the powerful Swordwhip in-game weapon.
Igarashi promises that Bloodstained will be the biggest Igavania ever. An Igavania being the creator’s modest term for a “gothic, exploration-focused action platformer, designed by one of the godfathers of the genre.”
You have to love Igarashi, though. In a recent trailer he tackled some of the complaints levelled at the game’s visuals head on, and to hilarious effect.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will be released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on June 18, 2019, with a Nintendo Switch version following on June 25, 2019.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
