“Vampire Survivors acquired a giant boss battle, restrict breaks, and higher level-ups”
Don’t concern the reaper in patch 0.8.0
Patch 0.8.0 is out right now for Vampire Survivors, and it hits the mark. With restrict breaks additional fueling the ability fantasy — and the flexibility to auto-pick coin luggage or ground chickens when leveling up — the horde-mowing motion feels continuous.
Wait, restrict breaks? Yeah. With the brand new relic, Nice Gospel, you’ll be capable to enhance weapons to a ridiculous diploma as soon as all the things else is maxed out. So as an alternative of the conventional money-or-food alternative once you stage up towards the tip of a run, you’ll be capable to crank up stats like Space, Pace, and May (with a share enhance) in your favourite weapons.
Restrict breaks are a toggle in Vampire Survivors, and to make use of them (they reset each run), you’ll first have to pry the Nice Gospel from a brand new boss’s chilly, skeletal palms. For a nudge in the proper route, head to Capella Magna and survive till the 30-minute mark.
**Spoilers beneath for the boss**
In contrast to the same old end-of-run reapers, it is a correct “boss combat” with area-of-effect assaults to dodge. However don’t be too intimidated. If you happen to play it secure, you’ll come out on prime.
After besting the ultimate (for now?) reaper boss in Vampire Survivors, you’ll earn a brand new Arcana known as Sport Killer — it halts XP positive factors and turns XP gems into exploding projectiles whereas additionally guaranteeing that each one treasure chests comprise not less than three gadgets.
Don’t neglect to manually decide up the Nice Gospel merchandise drop!
There’s additionally an unlockable bestiary in 0.8.0 that’s value a fast look in case you love Castlevania, although the developer, poncle, says it’s “largely incomplete” proper now. The enemy record “can be up to date with extra knowledge and particulars as we get nearer to v1.0.”
A pair extra quality-of-life options
With patch 0.8.0, any gadgets you’ve banished can be seen on the backside of the level-up choice display screen. One other change I like: it’s now attainable to filter out the achievements you’ve already earned, so that you don’t must scroll by 100+ accomplished listings.
That feeling once you meet up with the most recent Vampire Survivors replace and lift your achievement completion fee again to 100% — bliss! Till subsequent time, anyway. I do nonetheless have secret characters to unlock, together with a brand new one who may be discovered within the Bone Zone.
By way of the roadmap, Vampire Survivors nonetheless has room for extra weapons, Arcanas, and a brand new problem stage, plus no matter different surprises are in retailer. As somebody who tends to attend for Early Entry video games to achieve 1.0 standing, I’ve to say, this has been a blast.
This new patch has made me really feel much more highly effective with restrict breaks, and I’ve to think about there can be some wild new problem to place us again in our place.
