Team17 and The Game Kitchen have just launched Wounds of Eventide, the third and final update for action-platformer Blasphemous on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. This free DLC will unlock the true ending for Blasphemous, which was originally released in 2019.
Unveiling the final chapter of The Penitent One’s first story, Wounds of Eventide offers new levels, bosses, items, and secrets to unearth, while unlocking another fate for Cvstodia that leads into the events of the Blasphemous sequel that was announced earlier this year for a 2023 launch.
In a press release sent out earlier today, publisher Team17 said:
Wounds of Eventide concludes a series of three post-launch updates released for Blasphemous since its 2019 launch, beginning with ‘Stir of Dawn’ which launched in 2020 and introduced the ‘New Torment’ mode, a New Game+ addition that challenged players with a new level of difficulty, plus new playstyles, new bosses, and much more.
The second update, ‘Strife and Ruin’ launched last February and introduced Miriam from Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night into the world of Cvstodia as she sought help from The Penitent One, Strife and Ruin also added a new game mode and a ‘Demake Area’ that pays homage to classic 8-bit platformers.
Full patch notes for Wounds of Eventide, along with previous Blasphemous updates can be found on Steam.
For today only, as part of Team17’s 12 Days of Christmas sale, Blasphemous on PC is available for €5.50/$5.50/£4.40 from 4 pm GMT for 24 hours, and from December 10th to the 13th for €6.24/$6.24/£4.99. It’s also available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 for €24.99/$24.99/£19.99. Links to the Blasphemous store pages are available here.
Blasphemous is an extraordinarily original and compelling action-platformer. Not only is it rife with oppressive religious atmosphere, tone, and imagery, but its gameplay is also deep and challenging. It’s heartening to see this 16-bit style of gaming continue to thrive with titles that evolve the genre in such interesting and rewarding ways.
