Wow! I bought this on GOG awhile ago and just got the update, but didn't know what was in it! Really impressed that such a large and polished game is getting great updates like this. Very nice! Thank you!
CrossCode 1.2 - New Game+ is out!
the time for version 1.2 has finally arrived! And with it come new arena content and, of course, the New Game Plus!
New Game Plus is out!
The long promised New Game Plus is finally available! And it packs a ton of options that can modify your playthrough for additional challenge, experiments or pure silly fun. As long as you have earned enough Trophy Points to unlock them!
For additional challenge you can, for example, increase the damage you receive and the cooldown of your consumables, give enemies (including bosses!) more challenging attack patterns or reduce the effect of the popular HP Regeneration.
For perfectionist gamers there is even a mode that has poor Lea die after just one hit...
Dashing experts and fans of fancy witches can also activate Witch Time, which (heh...) will slow down time whenever you execute a Perfect Dodge!
And if you just want a fun time as an all-powerful avatar of destruction you can activate Sergey Hax and deal ridiculous damage with every attack.
Of course it'll also be possible to transfer your progress from the old game into the new one, like items, levels, botanics and more.
These are not even all of the modifications you can use. You better take your time to check it out yourself to craft your unique kind of CrossCode experience!
Lastly, some of those options, like Sergey Hax or keeping your old level, will also trigger a few special changes to the game's dialogue. Certain suspicions may seem very justified all of the sudden...
New Arena Content
As for the game itself, three more cups are now available in the Arena of Rhombus Square:
Faction Rookie Cup, Faction Advanced Cup and Faction Team Cup.
As the names imply, those cups center around revisiting battles from the quests that you have solved for the Factions of Shadoon. How well can you handle them at a high level, with top scores on the line?
Of course to access the cups you will first need to solve all the quests related to the fights.
With 3 more cups and their precious Arena Coins being available, the Arena Shop has extended its offers as well. You can now also find 4 pieces of unique equipment and also 3 precious pets. Ever wanted to have Death itself under your command?
Well, it won't really help you here but it makes for a cute companion, doesn't it?
And that's it for this update! Have fun with the new content and look forward to more in the future!
Until next time!
