The DioField Chronicle, released nearly a year ago, has finally received its first major update. The update brings the game to version 1.20 and it’s free to install on all platforms, including PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS5, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
When it comes to the content available in the update, version 1.20 brings five new missions, two new side missions, new equipment, skills, and several hours of additional gameplay.
The update introduces a new story based on Waltaquin Redditch, who first appeared in the main game. However, the content will be unlocked after Chapter 5 of the game.
Taking on the role of Redditch, you’ll be able to explore the Basement, which serves as a camp, and on top of that, you’ll also get to play five new missions and two sub-missions. Mind map mechanics have also been added to the game, allowing players to keep track of their decisions as Redditch. There is also a new weapon type, Magic Tomes, which will unlock the Necromancy and Necrotiem skills.
The aforementioned skills will allow the creation of Skeletal Knights and the transformation of other units into Skeletal Dragons. The update also introduces the players to a new boss Behemoth. The Behemoth, as the name implies, is a tough boss who will put your game skills to the test. However, if you want more challenges and difficulties, the update rolls out the New Game+ mode.
In the New Game+ mode, the levels, values, attacks of the opponents, and more are adjusted. Version 1.20 also brings in a new difficulty level, Very difficult to increase the difficulties and challenges in the main game. The patch notes will give further information in detail.
