Publisher Devolver Digital and developer Massive Monster have announced that their game 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.
The update will feature a brand-new post-game storyline in which a mysterious being asks players to conquer revamped crusades, enemies, and bosses with the help of Relics. These Relics are usable items that bestow unique effects upon the Lamb, enhancing combat in a multitude of different ways. Players can also conduct Sermons to unlock new Relics and keep track of them in the Relic Book as they uncover mysterious new lore concerning “The Three Ducks.”
The update also brings combat improvements 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.
The update also adds a variety of new content to ensure a happy commune. Players can assign a Follower to do the meal prep for them in the Kitchen, cooking up to 30 meals for their hungry flock, and solve their sleeping problems with Shared Shelters that house up to 3 Followers. As their Cult continues to grow, they’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.
