In Death Unchained adds an entirely new world via free DLC

October 28, 2021

Oculus Quest VR title In Death Unchained, which we gave 4/5 stars last year, is getting a massive free update from its developers on 3 November, which includes an all-new area.

The rougelite archery game with surprisingly challenging combat adds a whole new area with ‘Desolation’, the game’s new fourth world. There are two unique zones within it, along with new ‘amulets’ – new risk/reward items which add a new spin on gameplay. There’s also four new types of enemies, three new special arrows that serve as both weapons and spells, and fourteen additional achievements.

Author Peter V. Brett has also contributed new lore and backstory to the game, which can be found in ‘back story shards’. There’s also a range of graphical improvements, with new dynamic lighting and volumetric fog added to the new area, as well as updated enemy models and shaders.

The update will arrive on 3 November for anyone who already owns In Death Unchained on Quest. If you purchase it after that date, you’ll be getting even more for your money it sounds like.
