Rise of the Giant FREE DLC to be released on the 23rd of May!
Today we’re super excited to announce that we’re almost ready to release our first FREE DLC, Rise of the Giant, to Nintendo Switch users! It will be going live on the eShop on May 23rd at 9AM local time wherever you are.
Now what’s in it anyway?
We’ve a new biome and a new boss for you to take on, as well as a bunch of new monsters, new weapons and new challenges. This update brings a bunch of much needed balancing fixes, making certain weapons (cough spartan cough scandals cough cough) a lot more fun to play!
There’s also an entirely new level of difficulty for the most talented players, with a bunch of hidden content up in there.
We’ll be bringing the patch for this patch… That’s right, patchception, to the Switch as soon as possible. We’re testing it now and should submit to certification in the next month or so.
We’ve got a couple of new content updates planned for the rest of the year… So stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted.
As a reminder you can stay up to date with what we’re up to over here:
