The Dragon’s Crown developers at Vanillaware haven’t just sat back and assumed players will simply stare at the pretty pictures after they’ve beaten the game. Instead, they’ve actively worked to ensure that the experience gets better over time, adding cross-play back in October and releasing a total of five patches—the most recent of which hits today. If you’ve already scorched the entirety of Dragon’s Crown using the sultry Sorceress, this update gives plenty of reason to get back into the game over the holiday break.
In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Atlus PR manager John Hardin details the changes of this most recent patch, which bumps the level cap from 99 to 255, allows players who’ve beaten the game to skip straight to the Talisman-collection quest when creating a new character, adds a new Ultimate difficulty setting, and includes a new dungeon on that particular difficulty called the Tower of Mirages. According to Hardin, this is a randomly generated area that includes “tens of thousands of levels.” And you can bet that Dragon’s Crown fanatics are already busy tackling this new dungeon, so we should have a more exact number soon.
