Fans of Children of Morta can rejoice as 11 bit studios has released their first free content drop for the game, continuing on the traditions that earned the game critical acclaim.

After already receiving critical acclaim from critics and fans alike, the super-successful indie title that plays as an action-RPG with rogue-like and hack n’ slash elements is at it once again with a new free content drop. The content drop is only the first piece of the game’s massive 2020 roadmap, which will see content drop throughout the year for Children of Morta owners.

The game, already available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch – will now see players take on a new set of challenges within the game. The new update includes a Hard Mode, which will see players take increased damage and having to work harder to take out enemies, but with a higher risk-reward system that sees bigger XP rewards get dished out for every enemy taken out.


The new update also includes eighteen brand-new items for players to use including Granite boulders, bolts of electricity, and many, many, more just waiting to be discovered. 11 bit studios has also shipped out a few new changes including a new UI that features larger HUD options, which will be a welcomed sight for those playing on the Switch while on the go. The update also includes some balancing Tweaks for the Normal Mode along with various other fixes for the game.

Along with today’s release, PC players who want to give the game a whirl can do so at a 30% discount on both Steam and GOG for a limited time. Meanwhile, check out the official gameplay trailer up above.
