Legends of Ethernal Patch 1.1 Has Arrived!

Can you believe it? Legends of Ethernal is already two weeks old! From both Natsume and Lucid Dreams Studios we hope you’re having fun playing the game.

We have heard your feedback regarding the game’s difficulty, even at the Relaxed Mode. We want people to enjoy the game as it should be, based on the selected difficulty they want and expect, so Steam’s recent patch focuses on balance difficulty in the game while doing some bug fixes.

LEGENDS OF ETHERNAL PATCH 1.1

GAME BALANCE
– Balanced general difficulty in Relaxed Mode, Easy, Normal, Hard and Hardcore based on players’ feedback.
– Added more Ether drops through the game, particularly in the Dark Forest area.
– Removed permadeath in Hardcore mode.

BUG FIXES
– Spiders who exhibited unwanted behaviour when stunned now act like spiders should.
– Corrected a handful of typos in the French localization.

This patch is available now on Steam (PC/Mac) and we have submitted to all consoles – we expect the patch to be available at some time in December for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

“Pardon me, old bean, I’m Finneas Fat Cat the Fifteenth, owner of Fat Cat Shipping Incorporated,” Mr. Fat Cat interruptedly purred. “We’re the largest overland shipping company in New Pangea and own a fleet of big honking tanks to defend it.”

“We’re recruiting gamers to drive ConnecTanks to deliver goods to customers and greenbacks into my paws! Be sure to keep your eyes out for the console release of my game next year, hmm?”

AHEM. As I was saying before a certain rude interjection, ConnecTank is an upcoming indie title from the creative minds behind the Fallen Legacy series. You can learn more about YummyYummyTummy on their website right here.

Please be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for more information in 2021 as we reveal more behind the world of New Pangea, a certain fat cat entrepreneur, and first gameplay details.

Legends of Ethernal: Difficulty Modes

Whether you’re a grizzled veteran of the platform genre, or a mini-Mario in the making, Legends of Ethernal has a difficulty mode that’s perfect for young and old, experienced or newcomer.

Relaxed Mode

New to the platforming genre? Need some assistance? Playing with your little one? Just want to, well, relax? This mode is for you! Additional platforms are available, and enemies will be adjusted. Relaxed mode is for everyone, no matter their reasons, because we want everyone to enjoy the amazing world of Arkanys

Easy

Similar to Relaxed Mode, but with fewer additional platforms. Enemies remain slightly adjusted. For those who want a touch more challenge.

Normal

The default difficulty mode the game was created with. Balances platforming sections and enemies to be overall challenging. Expect to die occasionally.

Hard

Noticeably more challenging than Normal, enemies are demonstrably more difficult. Platforming sections have additional challenges. Expect to die regularly.

Hardcore

The Dark Souls of platfo…just kidding. Enemies are significantly more challenging. Platforming sections are grueling. Permadeath is enabled, which means if you die, you’re going back to the start of the game. You have been warned!

Join Wilfred on his journey to find his lost family when LEGENDS OF ETHERNAL launches on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch this fall. Be sure to stay tuned to the Natsume Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more upcoming details on the game~
