'Rain World' Celebrates 7th Anniversary, Unveils The Watcher DLC - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 28, 2024 @ 2:54 p.m. PDT

As a vulnerable slugcat separated from your family, you are left to scour industrial wastelands for food and shelter from the bone-crushing rains.

Slugcats are small nomadic creatures, frequently considered a tasty meal for hungry carnivorous beasts. As a group, slugcats make for more difficult prey; they are known to be especially cunning and protective of their kin, even going as far as to use weapons to fight back against larger foes when necessary. So while slugcats are very low on the food chain, they are often able to work together to stay out of harm’s way.

This was true for our slugcat hero―until the rains came.

Carried into a strange land of industrial ruins, you must journey ever farther for sustenance and shelter. Use stealth, wit, and well-timed pounces to capture and feed on prey while constantly keeping an eye out for larger creatures who are doing the same. In Rain World’s living ecosystem, creatures act according to their own survival instincts and learn from each encounter.

Climb through the ruins of an ancient civilization, evade the jaws of vicious predators, and discover new lands teeming with strange creatures and buried mysteries.

During Rain World’s 7th anniversary celebration, Akupara Games, alongside developer Videocult, announced Rain World's newest DLC The Watcher.

Explore undiscovered regions layered with creepy, crawly, never-before-seen creatures that’ll be sure to test the strongest of wills. When the world around you starts to crumble will you succumb to the sinister shadows or stand up stoic awaiting the evercoming, consuming darkness that grips your feet?

Rain World: The Watcher is the next DLC expansion of Rain World. Journey beyond to something, somewhere only ever glimpsed. When the world beneath your feet cracks and crumbles, will you hold on to all you once knew? Or dive into the unknown?

The wilds that await will be unlike all that's come before.

Unknown creatures stalk and climb and dive and hunt. New breeds rip and pluck and burrow and hide. Predator and prey redefined. And through the middle of it all, a lonely, lost slugcat trying their best to outlast the ravages of a warped world.
