To build an expansive audience for a forthcoming spiritual sequel, it helps if the players have experienced the original. Sega, along with Amplitude Studios, have made this possible by offering the hit game, Dungeon of the Endless, for free on Steam prior to the launch of its successor, Endless Dungeon, slated for October 19th. Gamers have until July 27th to avail of this generous offer. Additionally, both DLC packs can be downloaded from the community hub “while supplies last,” as stated by the game developers. The game can be played on both Mac and PC, with the exception of Macs that run on macOS Catalina or newer versions.
Dungeon of the Endless garnered popularity by cleverly blending several game genres, such as roguelikes, traditional role-playing, squad strategy, and tower defense. Players guide a team to safeguard their downed spaceship from an onslaught of adversaries while venturing into an increasingly expansive dungeon. Each individual element is not overly complex, but managing them all together can present a notable challenge.
Endless Dungeon continues the tradition of being a genre hybrid, but has evolved into more of a twin-stick shooter with a less harsh “roguelite” progression, allowing players to retain some of their gains even after failure. The game is designed from scratch for multiplayer, allowing solo players to command a squad while providing the option for two friends to join in. Early gameplay reviews indicate it’s still a tough game, even though it’s more accessible. The game will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. A closed beta will be released in September for those who pre-ordered the Last Wish Edition.
