After releasing Moonlighter
back in May, the folks at Digital Sun Games have mapped out how they intend to support the title for the rest of the year with four major updates. The first of these is the "More Stock" update and with the update available now for PC players, the Spanish studio have revealed what we can expect to see when the update comes to consoles in a few weeks.
The full list of additions, changes and fixes are as follows:
NEW FEATURES100 new rooms!
We have added 100 more room patterns to the game! We’ve also introduced another brand new element to the mix: the puddles. They are going to poison Will in the forest, burn him in the Desert and electrify his hero-wannabe guts in the Tech dungeon. This new element has given us more possibilities to design new rooms. Poor Will... No worries, though - we have also added more rooms without puddles!Special post-boss room
From now on, after defeating Boss in a dungeon - you can re-enter his chamber to find it crawling with monsters! This new room will provide an extra challenge - beat it quick enough to unlock all three chests. The chest timer will stop whenever you kill ALL the enemies. So, if you're a slowpoke - only one or two chests will be unlocked for you. Only true Heroes deserve the most handsome rewards!
About the chests themselves: each one is related to the kind of chest that you can find in each floor, so the first one will probably be a wooden chest or a silver chest. However, the second one will probably be a silver or a gold one! And - as you can already expect - the third one could even be the purple, magical one! This gives you different possibilities and motivation to go back to the dungeons that you've already finished.
Oh, and by the way: those chests have more loot than the standard ones that you normally find in the dungeons!New armor skins
Now, every time you decide (and you should!) to upgrade piece of armor it will have a different aesthetic associated with the dungeon, also the armor icon will be different. Here you can see the preview of Tier 1 armor skin:New visual effects for enchanted weapons
We’ve added new particle FX for enchanted weapons that are triggering whenever you use the weapon. The FX has 3 different levels that are associated with each enchantment level. So, the more enchanted weapon - the cooler it becomes! On top of that, we’ve added a little glint effect that it is applied to the icon of an enchanted weapon inside the inventory, so you can identify enchanted weapons easier.New in-game tutorials
We have added these scrolls that will appear whenever you upgrade your shop and and some kind of new feature appears. We’ve prepared these new tutorials for:
- Decoration items (Shop level 2)
- Wealthy customers (Shop level 2)
- Quests (Shop level 3)
- Crystal showcases (Shop level 3)
- Shop Helper (Shop level 4)
Here’s an example of one of the tutorials:DLC Backer Weapon
It is finally here: a special weapon we designed for Kickstarter backers (again: thank you SO much for supporting us back in the day)! It is a very unique Supporter Bow! What's very cool about it - is that Blacksmith can upgrade this weapon for you - so it won't become obsolete in the subsequent dungeons.

- No longer possible to open inventory between two stages of the final boss fight
- Crash on picking up an item that was dropped on death in Tutorial Dungeon
