A brand new update for Vampire Survivors is out today, February 9, that adds a wealth of new content to the game. Sinking our teeth into the v1.3.0 patch notes, one of the first things we noticed is the introduction of a brand new challenge stage with a name reminiscent of the Avenged Sevenfold hit, Bat Country. The challenge stage contains 2 relics needed to unlock the Charm power up along with Mortaccio’s morph ability, and contains low XP gain but high enemy density.
Elsewhere in the patch, it’s noted that three new achievements are being added along with some tweaks including the addition of a team member to the credits. The full v1.3.0 patch notes were shared to Steam.
Spoiler Warning: The patch notes contain mild spoilers for certain aspects of the game so if you’ve yet to fully dive into Vampire Survivors, you may want to do that before digging into what’s new in the game’s latest update.
