It’s been a busy week for Vampire Survivors news. On Wednesday (December 7), it was confirmed that the first addition to the game will be released on December 15 and will bring new characters, monsters and more than a dozen new weapons to roguelike.
Legacy Of The Moonspell will also present Vampire Survivors’ “biggest stage” with Mt Moonspell. The new level is an “extensive map with several different environments, each with its own challenges and inhabiting monsters! This stage includes an abandoned castle, a snow-covered mountain and a village teeming with youkai.”
In a four—star review, NME wrote: “Vampire Survivors is one of the best games of the year, let down only by a weak soundtrack and somewhat confusing graphics. Go through them and it’s the perfect lunch game offering short and enjoyable runs that will consume your whole life if you let it.”
Vampire Survivors also took third place in the list of the 20 best games of 2022 according to NME. “Since every game ends at the 30th minute with the appearance of an unkillable big villain, the game constantly pushes you forward: be aggressive, experiment, learn and improve. If you think Vampire Survivors doesn’t look good, you just haven’t played it yet.”
Elsewhere at The Game Awards, one contestant was arrested after gaining access to the stage during the show’s finale.
