It's always a little jarring when a long-quiet game suddenly makes some noise, isn't it? Makes you wonder what on Earth the people behind the game must be plotting.
Today's recipient of very-late-DLC and patch-work is The Behemoth's Castle Crashers
. Not only has a Title Update been issued, but two new downloadable items are going to be made available as well.
Here are some details as to the patch:
Added a Team vs Team feature to Player Match Arena (as opposed to the current free-for-all).
Earn two new Avatar Awards—Cardinal Animal Orb and Knight Helmet!
Ability to check Player’s Gamer Cards in Xbox LIVE matches.
Main menu News Ticker for all of your latest Castle Crashers and Behemoth Updates!
Notable Bug Fixes:
Level 256 cheat resolved (more info available on request).
Data copy glitch (more info available on request).
Sandworm experience glitch (more info available on request).
Wedding Crashers progression save now fixed when user leaves game play in flowery fields.
Smoothed Alien Hominid’s Splash Magic when traveling over water.
Slowed down Iceskimo’s power drainage from magic.
More effects added to elemental attacks for Alien Hominid, Demon and Iceskimo!
If your character dies, your Animal Orbs can no longer fight without you.
Fixed floating characters in Beefy Arena when grabbed.
Sandwiches can now be picked up after Volcano Boss fight.
In addition to these awesome new features and fixes, the Pink Knight, which had previously only been available through PSN, is now available via the XBL Marketplace
. The "Pink Knight Pack", which also includes five weapons, is absolutely free, and for each of the first 50,000 downloads, $1 will be donated to the Keep A Breast Foundation, sponsoring breast cancer early detection and awareness.
The Behemoth has also released a second DLC pack for Castle Crashers
, titled the "Blacksmith Pack", and they took some time to share a couple of details about the content.
Once shrouded in mystery, the legend of the Blacksmith becomes a reality. Wielding miniature antlered frogs, burning hammers of justice and springboard contraptions, this warrior is much like William Wallace (ala Braveheart), but purple and definitely not Mel Gibson.
The "Blacksmith Pack" is available now for 160 MSP but will need to be downloaded through the Marketplace via console, as it has not been added to Xbox.com's Marketplace just yet.
Thanks to all the members of the community who sent this one in!
