The Rise of Hindenbork

Changes in gameplay.

On May 19th we will update Rogue Stormers with new content – i.e. the new level that Schmitty and Vincent built. But they did much more…
Apart from the level they also implemented some gameplay changes to Rogue Stormers. The first change concerns the main characters and the unlock conditions. The second is related to couch co-op features.

Character unlocks depend on money collection

Unlocking all characters was one of the issues people had with Rogue Stormers. To have access to all characters in the game, you had to complete one walkthrough. It was intended to be challenging. But we see that we might have overdone it a bit.
So we decided to change the unlock condition. Instead of defeating all bosses to unlock all characters, we changed it to collecting a total of 5000 gold pieces. For the details, see the list below.

  • Presto: Collect a total of 500 gold pieces
  • Camille: Collect a total of 1,200 gold pieces
  • Stabbygale: Collect a total of 3,000 gold pieces
  • El Cazador: Collect a total of 5,000 gold pieces

New Couch Co-op Functionality

The other thing we changed was how you collect XP in couch co-op. Until now only player one would be able to earn Experience Points. The other players – i.e. characters in one account – wouldn’t get any. But we realize that it was frustrating for many players. For one because couch co-op turned out to seem less rewarding than online co-op. It also meant a lot of grinding to reach the max level with each character. This update change this so every character in a co-op game will earn XP and level up individually. And before you ask: No! You won’t get four times the XP if you play with a squadron of Brechts. 😉
