May 8, 2015 Written by Alex Co

Can’t get enough of TowerFall Ascension? You’ll be glad to know that it’s upcoming DLC — Dark World — will be out next week on May 12.

While we already reported on the expansion’s content, here’s an overview again in case you’re interested.

Here’s an overview of some of the content found in Dark World:

  • Vainglorious Ghoul, the Red Archer – She captains an infamous ghost ship known as The Amaranth. The Amaranth, it turns out, is also one of four new level sets in the expansion. These new locations are spread across the Dark World, a twisted reality parallel to the TowerFall world you’re familiar with.
  • Cataclysm – The final tower, Cataclysm uses procedurally generated levels to make sure every match is unique and surprising.
  • Trigger Arrows (New Power-Up) – Behaves like remote mines. Stick them to walls or ceilings in clever positions, wait for the perfect moment, and detonate when your opponents least expect it.
  • Prism Arrows (New Power-Up) – Lock your enemies in magical prisons so they have nowhere to hide.

In case you’d rather watch it than read, the preview clip can be seen above.

While US gamers will get the expansion next week, EU fans won’t be as lucky. According to Thorson, “EU will be a bit behind, unfortunately.”
