Curse Of The Dead Gods Receives The Cursed Temple Update

Focus Home Interactive has released a brand new update for Curse Of The Dead Gods being called The Cursed Temple. The Cursed Temple brings with it a few new ways to play the game, which includes the debut of the deadly Eternal Curse modes. These are a series of "replayable thematic challenges" with special modifiers. Those include a constant speed increase buff, taking less damage in the shadows, playing with a retro display, and more. But nothing comes for free, as the cursed aspect comes into play with some disadvantages you'll have to play against. You'll also have double the number of curses, more weapon variety, some bug fixes, and more. You can read more about it below along with a trailer showing off the update.
