'Aeterna Noctis' To Get Pit of the Damned DLC In Early 2023 - Trailer

by Rainier on Dec. 15, 2022 @ 2:01 a.m. PST

Aeterna Noctis is a 2D-metroidvania game that tells the story of the King of Darkness and the Queen of Light.

They are both cursed to fight each other eternally and even death could not free them from their destiny since they have been granted the gift of immortality. Players will experience this never-ending conflict through 16 challenging levels, each of them with its own flair, facing more than 100 different enemies, defeating more than 20 powerful final bosses (some of them are highlighted in this new trailer) and overcoming all kinds of challenging puzzles.

One of the most important features revealed during the extended gameplay was the leveling system. Aeterna Noctis has a skill tree where the player chooses the upgrades for the King of Darkness through three separate paths: melee combat, survival attributes and magic abilities.

Each one of these ramifications allows a deep degree of specialization but at the same time, are not mutually exclusive. Players are free to upgrade their character as they want.

Spanish development studio Aeternum Game Studios announced that the first playable DLC for Aeterna Noctis, Pit of the Damned, is scheduled for early 2023 and it will take us to explore a new area full of new challenges, new enemies, and, of course, a new and fearsome final boss.

The above trailer shows the King of Darkness making his way through some catacombs with that recognizable level and puzzle design.

Apparently, an ancient evil claims the monarch's presence in that old crypt. The visuals speak for themselves, and the DLC feels more Aeterna Noctis than ever. Everything indicates that its conclusion will leave more questions than answers, and will lay the foundations for future content for the franchise. In the upcoming months, we will be able to confirm our expectations before such a long-awaited DLC that will also include new improvements and skills as the studio has confirmed.

This DLC will be released simultaneously on PC and PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo consoles.

Key Features:

  • Experience a metroidvania with a challenging difficulty. Easy to leanr, but hard to master as you gain experience and unlock new skills.
  • Explore the mysterious lands of Aeterna in a non-linear way. You are always the one to choose your next challenge. All the levels are designed to fully exploit the movement skills of the characters, opening multiple ways to overcome each challenge.
  • Enjoy a clean and fluid gameplay designed and polished to achieve a system that responds to 100% of the actions regardless of the speed and conditions in which they are executed.
  • Immerse in a deep and beautiful story. Aeterna Noctis is not just about puzzles and platforms. It is also filled with epic moments and unexpected twists that will captivate even the most experienced of players.

Aeterna Noctis is available for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X| S and PC (Steam) at $29.99/€29,99.
