According to Francesco Zacchini, Technical Designer at developer Cold Symmetry:

[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]”Designing and developing The Virtuous Cycle DLC has been a blast. We have crammed in over 100 new abilities alongside new lore, the transforming Axatana weapon, and Hadern as a playable shell. I can’t wait to see all the ways players are going to break the roguelike mode that we created. I think they’re going to have a lot of fun with that.”[/testimonials]

The update will be released simultaneously on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG.COM. You can read our review of the base game here.
