The latest Vampire Survivors patch adds a nice holiday-themed aesthetic touch as well as a number of quality-of-life fixes and features. It also paves the way for the game’s first DLC, Legacy of the Moonspell, which brings a new stage, new characters, and more items to unlock.
The Vampire Survivors patch adds a Christmas tree skin for Peppino, along with various life changes and bug fixes. For example, there is now an option to toggle maximum power-ups, and treasure chests containing Arcanas are now purple. Improvements include removing the floor chicken requirement for Marrabio and stopping the endlessly bouncing Carrillo. The patch also adds support for DLC. You can read the full patch notes on Steam.
As for DLC, Legacy of the Moonspell includes a new stage, eight new characters, 13 new weapons (including evolutions) and six new music tracks. You can start the DLC if you have the Inlaid Library open. The new stage will appear right next to it in the stage selection menu. You’ll also get 17 new entries in the unlock menu, to help you progress through the DLC content, though there are secret spells that will unlock everything for you. The DLC normally costs $2, but there is currently a launch discount that puts it at $1.79.
The new stage, Mount Moon Spell, is 25 times larger than any previous stage and includes multiple areas such as an abandoned castle and a mountain village. Many of the new characters are part of the Clan Moonspell, whose mountain home has been overrun by oni and youkai. Miang Moonspell is a spirited and youngest of the Moonspell clan. Mania Moon is the Clan’s Master of Spells, a master of the mystical arts. Syutto Moonspell is an outcast, who practices the dark magic of the new moon, but still fights monsters of the night. New weapons like Silver Wind or Four Seasons unleash the powers of the moon and nature.
Vampire Survivors is one of the surprise hits of the year, gaining massive popularity on both Xbox and Steam. The game recently received a mobile port as well.
