Children of Morta gets Bergsons’ House update, details and trailer
11 bit studios and Dead Mage have announced that a major Bergsons’ House update is now live for the story-driven action-RPG Children of Morta. It includes new hero Apan, new Runes, and more.
Here’s a full rundown of the update:
We bring you some news from far-away lands! Bergsons’ House Update introduces a brand-new hero: Apan, a versatile mid-range champion, capable of covering a large area with her staff and spells while using a set of all-new runes and skills.
Apan – known as Clan Mother in her homeland – came from the far north of Mount Morta. She is as skilled in providing vital support for companions on the battlefield as she is in wielding a sturdy staff. Her weapon’s reach makes Apan perfect for delivering deadly mid-range strikes, her special Asva Pulse dash ability leaves opponents hindered in the dust, and her spells cover a large area of effect. In defence, all of the Bergsons can take advantage of Apan’s medical knowledge as she also boosts the effects of healing potions, and a new mechanic lets the family gain shields from items, abilities, and Apan’s Rage skill. Simply put, Apan’s presence makes them all stronger, especially in battle.
The exciting new character design was created by one of Children of Morta’s Kickstarter backers and his partner, who both believed in the project since its very early stages. Here’s what these backers – known as AgaRar and GlueBubble – had to say about the idea that inspired the Apan’s creation, “The idea for Apan came from the brainstorming of myself and my partner. We originally made her an orphan, but later changed her to a mother to better compliment the Children of Morta story and family theme. A strong leader of nomadic healers who allies herself with the Bergsons to aid them in their fight against Corruption. We hope that our inspiration, and Dead Mage’s hard work, translates into a character that you all will enjoy for years to come.”.
The free update contains:
– A brand-new character with a unique skillset designed to play in single-player, but shine in co-op playthroughs
– Special shielding skills and passive healing mechanics
– 32 new Apan-specific Runes
– 9 new story Cutscenes
– a few HUD and UI tweaks
– additional bug fixes
