Moonlighter outlines free updates coming in 2018

Since its release in May, the development team at Digital Sun has been listening to fan feedback regarding Moonlighter - the hybrid roguelike/shop simulator. Several patches have already been made to improve usability and squash various bugs & glitches, but today the publisher announced the future outline for significant content updates yet to come to the game.

Included in the roadmap are plans to incorporate a New Game + mode with a higher level of difficulty, companion characters that can help Will out in the dungeons, as well as some new bosses to vanquish. All of these updates will be free.

Digital Sun and publisher 11 Bit Studios also note that a Nintendo Switch version is still in the works, and will post more information when it's available.

Find the Infographic and detailed overview below:


Excited? So are we! Let's give you a little bit more information about each milestone from the roadmap (not everything, though - we like to keep some secrets) and this should go without saying, but all the updates you see here are going to be totally free!


  • More Stock Update - Out first update will add more than 50 new rooms distributed all over the four dungeons making a total of almost 600 room patterns available! It's also going to improve the look of armors and enchanted items, plus we plan to add some additional help/tutorials to explain different shop upgrades better.
  • Adventure Update - New Game+ lets players start the whole game again with increased difficulty level. This update will also bring brand new Dimensional Weapons and Amulets, powerful equipment based on an unknown and mysterious technology.
  • Companion Update - Feeling lonely in the Dungeons? Worry no more! Choose a companion and bring it with you on the adventure! Each companion will be a little bit different, offering various skill sets and looks. On top of that we're going to introduce the Custom Game - a set of options that will allow you to modify certain game parameters to create diverse experiences.
  • Trouble Update - Put your skills to the test by battling some brand new mini bosses! We're not going to tell you anything more about them - because we want those enemies to surprise (and brutally defeat... muah ha ha ha) you during your adventures. Yup, we're sadistic like that sometimes. We're also going to add new Item Effects, boosting the game's variety. This update should arrive sometime around Halloween - so we're hoping to bring you some spoOOOoky stuff, too!

That's the basics, and as we said before, we don't want to spoil everything so we can keep you on the edge of your sats while you wait for upcoming content! And yes - we have even MORE updates planned for 2019!
