Rift Of The Necrodancer Announced With New DLC For Classic Roguelike Rhythm

A trailer for an all-new Crypt of the Necrodancer DLC also teased an upcoming standalone game in the series: Rift of the Necrodancer.

The trailer showed off a logo and promised more news soon. More game details are yet to come, though the trailer confirmed that Rift of the Necrodancer is a new standalone rhythm game.

The DLC, Crypt of the Necrodancer: Synchrony, adds three new characters, multiplayer, and mod support to the beloved musical roguelite. It is also available on Steam in early access. The new characters are Klarinetta, a knight wielding a massive Zweihänder, Chaunter, a ghostly being who can possess enemies, and Suzu, an oni with a quick dash and powerful spear.

Multiplayer adds both cooperative and competitive modes for up to eight players simultaneously, with up to four local players. The game uses a rollback multiplayer architecture and allows you to join and create lobbies. You can even attend matches. Modes include a single versus mode, one last dance, and cooperative play.

The update also adds new items, enemies, and weapons. You can now carry a shield, deal damage with Onyx weapons, throw any weapon with a throwing charm, and use dash and charm spells, among many other new additions. Synchrony introduces full mod support, including a mod portal that allows you to install and browse in-game mods.
