Players can boot the game up and play through a new story branch where they’ll journey to defeat the five Amanecida, sine Laudes, an ancient creation of the Miracle, has been awoken to challenge The Penitent One. Confused? Well, that’s probably because you didn’t play the base game and should before jumping into this.

The DLC gives players access to new items, new areas, and a new map system. The developer has also updated the voiceovers and made significant tweaks to the gameplay.

The Torment Mode has players choose from one of Three Penitences:

  • Unwavering Faith – Helpful to the magic users to use special moves. However, the sword damage is cut in half.
  • Bleeding Heart – A more classic experience where players have a set of stocks instead of a life bar and enemies respawn when entering a room.
  • True Guild – Players lose maximum fervor when they die and the Tears of Atonement are placed in a fragment, which the players need to gather before another death or they’ll lose the currency forever.

The DLC also adds a New Game+ mode for those who’d like to take on a higher difficulty.
