Soul Sacrifice just came out in Japan and in early April the game will get a major update. Sony Computer Entertainment plans on supporting the game post launch with new maps, quests, and monsters. The first update has a unique map called Goliath where you enter the body over a gigantic warrior. The map has gimmicks like digestive fluids to dodge to make players feel like they’re diving into a world of organs. Kind of reminiscent of the Ki’s Body scenario in Final Fantasy Legend II / SaGa II.
The April update also adds Dullahan a corrupted knight that turned into a monster because of its lust for violence. Dullahan holds its head in its hands which can be used as a weapon.
The Behemoth is a victim of gluttony. Before becoming a monster the Behemoth was a regular boy. His parents disowned him after he ate these delicious apples that transformed him into the beast below. The Behemoth now uses apples to attack warriors in Soul Sacrifice.
Sony will also add a new quest and support for ad-hoc party for Soul Sacrifice.
Soul Sacrifice comes out on April 30 in North America and May 1 in Europe.
