Also, the update will feature new buildings to construct for your community along with various unique followers to recruit — allowing all players to build their communities even further than before! Most importantly, this will be part of a new quest to enjoy, with secrets and challenges awaiting those wishing to conquer it.

Lastly — and probably the coolest part of the update — a Permadeath mode will be added to the game, allowing players to take on their greatest challenge. For those unfamiliar, Permadeath mode is where the player must finish the game without dying once, but if death does come, then the game restarts. Another mode includes Boss Rush mode, where players can take on all the game bosses in a single arena. The trailer clarifies that this mode will become available after completing the game.

The latest update has a confirmed release date of April 24, 2023, and will be free for all players who own the game!
