  • Collect loot from exploration and fallen enemies and then use it to upgrade weapons via crafting.
  • Travel to the many corners of this perilous land, such as an inviting village with merchants, a forest, a temple prison, floating islands, a cursed Cathedral, and the hellscape that is Elderand itself.
  • More than 60 different enemy types and around a dozen bosses to slay.
  • Collect lost letters and other correspondence from the poor souls who came before to learn more about the darkness taking hold of this grim land.
