Children of Morta Family Trials free update - What's included
By Sam Jones - 8th Apr 2021Games
The latest free update introduces a new mode and plenty of extras
Action roguelike RPG Children of Morta launched back in September 2019, in which you lead the Bergsons - an extraordinary family of heroes - against the dreaded Corruption through a series of challenging dungeons.
Developer 11 bit studios, the team behind Frostpunk and This War of Mine, has been keeping gamers up to date on its Development Roadmap with new features and improvements in Children of Morta since February last year. So far, through rather generous free updates, the hack 'n slash-style RPG has had new difficulty settings and a New Game+ mode, a new playable character (Apan) and items pack, and a new Animal Shelter System added to the game along with new mechanics and events.
But the studio isn't done just yet as there are a couple more updates still on the roadmap, one of which has launched this week. The fifth free update 'Temple of The Endless' is a major update that adds a brand-new mode called Family Trails to the game.
The Family Trials mode revolves around Zyklus, a unique and abnormal Dungeon located somewhere in Rea. The Zyklus Dungeon is quite unstable - its nature and rules rapidly change, following an obscure, chaotic cycle affected by the Corruption itself.
Bergsons use this mysterious place to test their skills and limits - so they're better prepared to face the dangers that await them in the Land of Rea.
It's completely separate from the Main Story campaign of the game, and offers new systems, items, character builds possibilities and more - all set in a series of completely randomized dungeons. 11 bit studios say that it's also quite challenging - most of the progress is lost when you die in the dungeon - so you better prepare to learn from your mistakes!
Head into procedurally generated dungeons in local co-op or solo and help the Bergsons vanquish evil with your officially licensed Children of Morta Steam PC key.
