Action RPG Dread Delusion in the spirit of games for the first PlayStation receive big update. For the first time in Early Access, the developers have added a new region.
The new area called “The Clockwork Kingdom” is home to the largest floating island with the most detailed city in the game – the dystopian Ferropolis. There you can complete five new quests, explore a new dungeon, visit shops (including the Black Market), and meet hundreds of NPCs. Foreigners are not allowed into the kingdom – to get there you need to use the merchant Mikhail’s airboat.
One of the quests continues the main quest chain. In it you will have to find the famous sky pirate Caxton Frost, an old friend of the dangerous criminal Vela Callose, whom players tracked down in a mission from last year’s update. His whereabouts are suggested by Horace, who must first be helped to regain his memory. The quest takes you to various locations across the kingdom, including the surreal Corrupted Lands filled with nightmarish creatures and the memories of Horace.
In another quest, players meet the local ruler – the Clockwork King – and can decide whether to serve him or try to overthrow him. Another task asks you to search for missing residents.
The Lovely Hellplace team is working on Dread Delusion. The action role-playing game is set in the open world of floating islands, where humanity moved due to a curse that made the Earth’s surface uninhabitable. Players can fight, develop skills, trade and influence the development of the plot.
