Crypt of the NecroDancer: SYNCHRONY DLC Announced, Available on Steam Early Access
Brace Yourself Games announced a DLC expansion for rhythm roguelike RPG Crypt of the NecroDancer. The SYNCHRONY DLC is available now for PC, Mac, and Linux through Steam Early Access for $6.99, with a 10% launch discount. The full release is expected in late 2022/early 2023, with the DLC to be released on other platforms following its Early Access period.
SYNCHRONY includes multiple new features, including online co-op and versus multiplayer with support for up to eight players. It also adds three new playable characters — Chaunter, Suzu, and Klarinetta — and mod support via mod.io, plus new weapons, spells, items, enemies, etc. In addition, Brace Yourself Games teased that it is also working on a new title, Rift of the NecroDancer, though no other details have been released.
Crypt of the NecroDancer combines 2D dungeon-crawling with a rhythm-based movement and combat system that rewards players if they time their inputs with the beat of the game’s music. The game originally released for PC, Mac, and Linux in 2015, with the game also later released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android. Brace Yourself Games also developed Cadence of Hyrule, a crossover between Crypt of the NecroDancer and The Legend of Zelda series that release for Nintendo Switch in 2019.
