17:00 CEST 12 SEPTEMBER 2023: Owners of The Chant – the single-player, third person horror action-adventure game set on a remote spiritual island retreat – can now enjoy for free The Gloom Below, the game’s first DLC.
The Gloom Below adds additional lore, upgraded abilities, new weapons and some new enemies too, as well as having significant focus on the combat and action elements of the game, giving users many more hours of horrific pleasure; each death leads players closer to their escape so finding the right build will be essential.
This DLC is available free of charge to all owners of the base game on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam). However, it will need to be redeemed manually rather than an auto-update.
Full instructions are available on the relevant store pages.
In conjunction with the free DLC release, The Chant main game receives a substantial upgrade patch today, featuring significant changes and improvements, including:
- Improved AI: enemies are now more observant and responsive, making more challenging and engaging encounters. Furthermore, enemies can now pursue players further.
- Combat Improvements: players can now experience a more refined combat system, with a smoother and more responsive auto-targeting and more accurate collision mechanics for both player and enemy attacks, resulting in a more immersive and enjoyable combat experience.
- Revised Mind Body Spirit Experience System: enemies are now categorised into three distinct types: Mind, Body, or Spirit. Players gain experience in these categories by defeating corresponding types of enemies. Weapons and Abilities deal increased damage when matched with the same enemy class. Additionally, enemy health meters are colour-coded according to their experience type, aiding players in strategic decision-making.
- Enhanced Visuals: the game now offers a more vibrant and clear vision of The Gloom, enhancing the overall immersive experience.
To celebrate the release of The Gloom Below, The Chant is reducing its price permanently, making it the best chance to hop into the cosmic horrors of The Chant!
NOTES TO EDITORS:
Set at a spiritual retreat on a remote island, The Chant has you trying to survive against a host of prismatic terrors that are unleashed after a group chant ritual goes horribly wrong, opening a portal to a nightmare dimension called The Gloom.
This dimension feeds off negative energy and starts driving you and the others mad, preying on your own anxieties and fears, and manifesting as interdimensional creatures: ultimately taking you on a journey of psychedelic horror the likes of which you have never experienced before.
But all is not lost; only by unravelling the mysteries of a 1970s new age cult while strengthening your mind, body, and spirit, can you reverse the chant and avoid being trapped in the gloom forever.
