Highlands of Avalon adds new mechanics, tiles, and recruitable characters today in DLC for Curious Expedition 2

From Press Release:

Gothenburg, Sweden – November 16th, 2021 – Thunderful Publishing and independent developer Maschinen-Mensch are excited to announce that the Highlands Of Avalon DLC for Curious Expedition 2 is out now on PC, priced at $5.99 / €5.99 / £4.99 with a 10% launch discount. The update will be coming to Nintendo Switch early in 2022.

Bringing a brand new island type to Curious Expeditions 2, Highlands of Avalon offers a new set of tiles, a new game mechanic related to traversing hills and valleys, a new tribe called the Picts and new artwork for shrines. The DLC includes eight new recruitable characters  – Grail Knight, the Precious Clydesdale horse, three Kobold variants (Bard, Scoundrel and Shamen, Shaman) and three variants of Picts islanders (Spiritual Druid, Pictish Outrider, Tattooed Warrior). You can also encounter four deadly new enemies, visit six new locations, and kit yourself up with seven new pieces of equipment and five new items. Last but not least, there are four new levels to unlock at the Royal Avalon Society Explorer Club in Paris, giving you access to one recruitable character and three pieces of equipment.

Curious Expedition 2 is like a Jules Verne pulp adventure version of a pen & paper RPG, mixed with narrative roguelike elements, all wrapped up in a streamlined and accessible gameplay experience. Take on the role of an intrepid explorer, assemble your crew and head out into the unknown. On your expeditions you’ll come across all manner of cultures, flora, fauna, treasures and more, ranging from the worldly to the altogether more… curious! Using a combination of hand-crafted and procedural gameplay and story elements, Curious Expedition 2 creates completely unique and epic adventures every time you play.

“We’re really excited to keep adding to and improving Curious Expeditions 2, this time with the Highlands of Avalon DLC,” said Mascha Camino, Game Designer at Maschinen-Mensch. “We hope our PC players enjoy it on November 16th and we can’t wait to unleash it on Switch and, along with the full game, on PlayStation and Xbox early next year!”
