monster sanctuary counter attack update

Publisher Team17 and developer Moi Gai Games have readied a significant 1.3 patch for Monster Sanctuary, otherwise known as the “Counter Attack” update. It includes the option for donating multiple eggs at once to the Monster Army, new skills, lots of balancing adjustments, and more.

Below are the full patch notes for the Monster Sanctuary Counter Attack update:

  • adds Brazilian Portuguese translation
  • Multiple Egg Donating
    • To make your life as a Keeper a little easier, we added the possibility to donate multiple eggs at once to the Monster Army. It is an additional option in the Monster Army menu and should make the process of donating eggs way faster for you.
  • Improved L/R switching Monster behavior in menus
    • This feature makes managing your inactive Monsters easier! When selecting an inactive Monster first, the game will cycle through inactive and active Monsters. If selecting an active Monster first, the game will only cycle through active Monsters like you know it from before. You can also switch Monsters in the feed menu and monster consumables menu now using L/R buttons on gamepad or a/d on keyboard.
  • New Skills Added: Counter Attack + Sidekick Support
    • Minitaur got some love in this update with the new skill Counter Attack, enabling a powerful revenge! Vodinoy also gains Counter Attack, see below for detailed balancing changes.
    • Sidekick Support is a new Aura making full sidekick teams more viable or allowing Monsters that don’t attack that often to benefit from Sidekick buffs. Dodo, Changeling and Dracozul gained this new skill. Check the balancing changes below for more details.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed multiple bugs related to saving/loading teams (sometimes, when saving a monsters on multiple teams and switching between those, the skill tree didn’t update properly)
  • Fixed Issue that Tanuki could not be donated in NG+
  • Fixed ‘Shield Crush’ to properly apply the Aura effect (was only working on the monster itself)
