The developer behind the hit indie title Children of Morta has announced in its updated 2021 roadmap that all future DLC for the game will be free.
As reported by TechRaptor, Children of Morta developers Dead Mage Studios and 11 Bit Studios have announced sweeping changes to their roadmap published in 2019. Originally, Children of Morta was to see three new updates that included online co-op, an endless mode, and a new story chapter. Instead, 11 Bit Studios has decided to merge the endless mode with the new story chapter, rename the new update to the “Family Trials” DLC, and release it for free.
“Family Trials” was intended to be released as paid DLC towards the end of the roadmap. However, the update is now going to be released for free as a thank you to those who purchased the previously released Paws and Claws DLC. All of the proceeds raised from the Paws and Claws update went straight to Humane Society International, a charity focused on tackling animal cruelty.
Dead Mage and 11 Bit Studios have explained in a post on Steam that one of the reasons behind the drastic change to the roadmap is down to the pandemic. Covid-19 has affected a number of developers over the past year, especially those with limited budgets and smaller teams like the developers behind Children of Morta.
Both developers also felt that several elements from the “Endless Mode” update would work better as part of the story DLC. They also reassure fans that online co-op is still coming and hasn’t been cancelled but don’t know when the update will be ready.
Dead Mage and 11 Bit Studios have been working seemingly non-stop this past year to deliver several new additions to Children of Morta. Recent updates include the aforementioned Paws and Claws DLC, New Game+, more story content, and even a new character created by Kickstarter backers.
For those who haven’t played Children of Morta, the game is an action RPG with roguelike elements that has you play as the Bergson family who has to fight against an ever-encroaching evil to protect Mount Morta. Children of Morta is currently available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
