Publisher Devolver Digital and developer Massive Monster announced Cult of the Lamb is getting a big new update next week.
The new “Relics of the Old Faith” update is coming on April 24th for all platforms, adding a brand new post-game storyline, new enemies, bosses, and more.
Here’s a rundown on the update, plus a new trailer:
The glorious update will feature a brand-new post-game storyline in which a mysterious being asks you to conquer revamped crusades, enemies and bosses with the help of Relics; usable items that bestow unique effects upon the Lamb, enhancing combat in a multitude of different ways. Conduct Sermons to unlock new Relics and keep track of them in the Relic Book as you uncover mysterious new lore concerning “The Three Ducks.”
Combat improvements also come in the form of Heavy Attacks, which enable the Lamb to embark on deeper and more challenging expeditions than ever before. Players will need to combine all of their new skills to take on tougher enemies boasting beefier attacks.
Growing a cult isn’t just about defeating enemies and converting non-believers, however, so Relics of the Old Faith also heralds a host of new content to ensure a happy commune. Assign a Follower to do the meal prep for you in the Kitchen, cooking up to 30 meals for your hungry flock, and solve their sleeping problems with Shared Shelters that house up to 3 Followers. As your Cult continues to grow, you’ll need a nice new Crypt to store the mounting corpses, but keep things looking pretty with Farm Plot Signs that use the Lamb’s powers of suggestion to encourage Followers to organize their crops.
Followers will continue to evolve into new and unusual forms following the update, including badgers, penguins, racoons and more, and proud Cult Leaders can preserve their treasured memories forever with the new Photo Mode.
Cult of the Lamb is available for Windows PC, Mac (via GOG and Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series XIS. In case you missed it – you can read our review for Cult of the Lamb right here.
