Children of Morta expands with new playable character, masks, and graces in Ancient Spirits DLC

From Press Release:

Warsaw, Poland – October 7th, 2021 — Offspring born out of forbidden love. A warrior like no other. 11 bit studios and Dead Mage are thrilled to present the newest addition to the cast of playable characters within their rogue-lite dungeon-crawling indie hit, Children of Morta. The Ancient Spirits DLC is priced at $4.99 on all platforms.

Children of Morta has received a steady flow of content since its release and six previous updates have included: a new character, a new combat-focused gameplay mode, a charity-fundraising DLC, and tons of gameplay-variety improving Items and Relics. In Ancient Spirits, a new type of warrior arrives bringing two unique combat styles to a single fighter. Born out of the love between a man and a goblin, Yajouj’Majouj fluidly changes battle forms together with their basic and special attacks, switching between spinning whirlwinds of Spirit Embers or the magnetic, wounding power of a quirky ally.

Alongside this additional character—playable in the Family Trials mode only—the DLC also includes new character masks to customize each family member as well as five relics, five charms, and five graces to provide players with new powers to further enhance combat and playstyle in both the Story and Family Trials modes.

Children of Morta has steadily expanded its content since the 2019 launch. As of today, all of the above content—the base game with two paid DLCs, Ancient Spirits and charity-fundraising Paws and Claws—can be purchased together in the Children of Morta: Complete Edition. Continuing 11 bit’s commitment to charity fundraising, all bundle sales still send partial proceeds to Humane Society International, so together we’re still helping animals across the globe for whom we’ve already raised more than $200,000!

Children of Morta: Ancient Spirits and Children of Morta: Complete Edition are available at a discount right now, alongside our full catalogue in the 11 bit studios publisher sale taking place on Steam between October 7th – 14th. For those undecided, from October 15th we will offer a demo version of Children of Morta to try out your skills on Nintendo Switch, alongside  Moonlighter, our pixel-art shopkeeping RPG.
