Loop Hero Sells Half a Million Copies, Quality-of-Life Updates Coming

Loop Hero hits its first major milestone one week post-launch, and developer Four Quarters says updates are inbound.

Loop Hero is the new sensation. The 2D roguelite RPG just released for PC on March 4, but it’s already sold more than 500,000 copies, no small feat for any game, much less one revealed only a few short months ago.

It’s already cracked the Top 20 on Steam Charts for concurrent players, with more than 51,000 at its peak. It might not be as seismically popular as Viking survival game Valheim, but it’s proven to be a bonafide hit in its own right. 

Alongside the news of the game’s “week one sales milestone,” developer Four Quarters said that a handful of updates are on the horizon, starting with the addition of Steam trading cards in collaboration with artist Bard-the-Zombie.

Beyond that, Four Quarters said that other “quality of life” and aesthetical updates will follow. 

Next up, we’re working on patches with quality-of-life updates you all asked for, including a system for saving during expeditions, new speed settings, and a deck of traits gained from bosses! After that, you can expect to see lots more content added to the game, such as new cards, transformations, classes and new music. 

There have been a number of Loop Hero hotfixes released since launch, with the latest (as of this writing) 1.012 hotfix tweaking the book worm and broken geography achievements, fixing the game’s resource dupe, and updating boss summons. 

We called Loop Hero “a game that’s absolutely worth the timesink” in our review, praising it for its learning curve and sense of discovery, as well as how it “cleverly mixes many different genres” into a cohesive and compelling adventure. Despite being a bit “grueling,” there’s little wonder why it’s become so popular so quickly.

Stay tuned for further updates in the coming weeks. You can pick up Loop Hero, if you haven’t already, over on Steam for $14.99.
