Blasphemous has introduced a lot of new content with free The Stir of Dawn DLC. The update is now available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch.
The Stir of Dawn brings a brand-new storyline with New Torment, where players have to defeat the five Amanecidas. Players can choose from one of the three Penitences, all of which will significantly affect the gameplay experience. The three Penitences are listed below:
- Unwavering Faith is designed for players who want to use magic and it features regenerating fervour to execute special moves, which is lost when hit. The sword damage is reduced to half.
- Bleeding Heart adds a more classic experience with a set of stocks instead of a lifebar. Enemies will respawn after entering rooms.
- With True Guilt, players will lose maximum fervour when they die, at which point Tears of Atonement are placed in a fragment. If a player dies again before the fragment is retrieved, those Tears are lost for good. Flasks cannot be used to recover and they grant The Penitent One fervour instead.
The Stir of Dawn also introduces new items, executions, areas, map system, and update voiceovers.
