For fans of challenging-bordering-on-tense boss rush games, last year’s Eldest Souls was arguably an unmissable treat. A game whose unusual interpretation of real-time combat — one that puts even greater emphasis on using stamina and movement wisely — helped Fallen Flag Studio’s outing become an instant recommendation for those who find themselves gluttons for punishment. But it would seem as if the studio weren’t quite done with the game, or at least wanted to give a bit more back to those who helped support the game when it released last July.
Indeed, Fallen Flag have today released an expansion to Eldest Souls dubbed The Forgotten Depths, which bundles in three additional boss fights to the base game. What’s more, it’s free and available right now to download across all platforms the game is on. “The positive reaction and support from the community to Eldest Souls, our first game, has been overwhelming.” The team explain. “As a small team of friends who dropped out of university to pursue their dream this has meant a lot to us. All this new content is our way of saying a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who has played it. We hope all new and old Eldest Souls fans will enjoy it!” Eldest Souls is available now across PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Switch & PC.
