Vampire Survivors DLC is on the way. Tides of the Foscari is the second expansion for the highly-acclaimed roguelike, and it will take you to the fantastical and foreboding Great Forest of Western Europe surrounding The Foscari Academy. It will release on April 13, 2023, and cost $1.99.
The Tides of the Foscari DLC will be saturated with the influence of fairy tales and folklore, which, of course, means there’ll be danger lurking, whether it be magical beasts, spellcasters, demi-humans, demons, or other spooky foes.
Unfortunately, players will lose their previous 100% save files when starting the DLC, according to developer and publisher Poncle. RIP. Nonetheless, Poncle has revealed all we have to look forward to with the upcoming release via Xbox Wire, and we couldn’t be more excited.
The Foscari Academy takes inspiration from Western Europe, too, and is divided into houses. There will be three houses in total: The Azure Tower, the Crimson Anvil, and the Amber Sickle.
In the Azure Tower, you’ll find hedge witches, novice mages, and sorcerers alike. Arcane magic shines here, and the Tower is where you’ll find the most powerful witches and wizards alumni.
The Crimson Anvil is as its namesake suggests, and teaches the art of weaponry and warfare. Engineering, architecture, demolition, and blacksmithing are the foci of this house. There’s plenty to learn about swinging a battle axe here.
Lastly, the Amber Sickle is the house of scholars and agriculture. Here you’ll find pursuits of animal husbandry, archery, and even spycraft. The Amber Sickle is perfect for those seeking a more humble approach.
While we eagerly await the arrival of Tides of the Foscari DLC, we know upfront that we can look forward to the following:
- 20 new achievements
- 8 new characters
- 13 new weapons
- 1 stage: Lake Foscari — An enchanted forest filled with fantastical beasts.
- 7 music tracks
The base game is required to play the DLC and is available for $4.99 on Steam. It is also included with Xbox game pass. There’s currently a bundle for Vampire Survivors’ previous DLC, Legacy of the Moonspell, for $5.93 on Steam, so we’ll keep our eyes peeled for a similar bargain for the upcoming release. Stay tuned for more on Tides of the Foscari.
