TOKYO – Aug. 5, 2021 – LOST EPIC, the 2D Souls-like side-scrolling action RPG with fast-paced battles and hack-and-slash elements from publisher One or Eight and developer Team EARTH WARS, today reveals its Steam Early Access update roadmap detailing new levels, weapons, skills, quests, UI improvements, and more on the way to a Q4 2021 1.0 release for Steam for Windows PC.
 

Adventurers can ready their weapons to explore and unlock new worlds The Capital and The Underworld in Q3 2021, doubling the current amount of content in the game. The ominous anatomical landscape of The Capital connects underground to The Underworld with multiple routes to discover and giants that can destroy buildings.
 

Arsenals will expand with stylish new weapons coming to the world of Sanctum in the lead up to 1.0. Equip the Shield Gauntlet, which allows players to guard without losing stamina; the Wand that inflicts status ailments with high offensive stats; and the Torch which brightens dark areas. Additional quests from new NPC’s like a frightened ghost girl in The Underworld encourage returning travelers to try out the latest additions and discover new paths.
 

The future holds more conquests in v1.0 with extra content updates planned for later this year including the story finale, one last new world, more weapons and skills, extra combat element types, as well as post-game content. After the full version releases, Team EARTH WARS plans to award dedicated daredevils with even more tribulating trials in post-launch content planned for early 2021.
 

The Sanctum now offers four expansive levels with 14-20 hours of playtime, nearly 40 weapons, and more than 100 skills. God-slayers can also enjoy a refreshed UI, quality of life improvements, and new beautiful character artwork by Namie (Fate/Grand Order, Arknights, Azur Lane) in their journeys.
 

“Our fans really tore through the game since its June launch, and we’re happy to satisfy their demands for even more LOST EPIC,” said a Team EARTH WARS representative. “We hope everyone is ready for all the exciting new additions coming soon, and welcome feedback from our players on what they like and what we can change.”
 

LOST EPIC is out now on Steam Early Access for Windows PC for $19.99. For more information, visit the official LOST EPIC website and the official Discord server.
