Early Access Patch Notes 4/4

Recommended Posts


Thursday we got our “SUMMON THE DEMON LORD” Update out on Steam Early Access! We’ve received a lot of great feedback, and are excited to see a lot of brave Defenders taking on Nightmare. That said, we’ve spent two days squishing bugs and making adjustments thanks to your efforts. We would have got this patch out sooner, except that while we are all remote, our studio lost power and delayed the ability to get this out (yay, delays out of our hands strike once again). Power's been restored, our internal servers are a'roarin', patch has been deployed, meaning there's only one thing left to do — let’s get into it!

General Changes


  • Summit
    • XP granted previously included what you would get from the Ancient Dragon boss fight. Reduced this for the time being until the great beast is added.

Ancient Mines

  • Added additional Spider spawn locations.

Lava Mines

  • Reduced the DU in Lava Mines on Insane and Nightmare.
    • There’s a larger version coming later that will use these DU values.

Demon Lord

  • Added VFX to the electric coil machines.
