Crypt of the NecroDancer recently received a new update that brought a DLC with online multiplayer, three new characters, and general changes.

New DLC

This update added the SYNCHRONY DLC. It introduced three new characters namely:

  • Klarinetta: Wielder of the Zweihänder, a heavy sword that occupies a tile diagonally adjacent to her.
  • Chaunter: A weak, ghostly being who only has half a heart. This being wields the Lantern, which has the range of a dagger and emits a small amount of light.
  • Suzu: Wielder the Lance of Courage, a melee weapon that releases a rapid, powerful dash when the character is killing an enemy.

Online Multiplayer

The new DLC has enabled the online multiplayer mode with lobbies for up to eight players and support for online co-op and versus modes. This addition is a great way to move forward with the game, but the likely massive part of the new feature is the support for high latency for two-player sessions of up to 300 milliseconds of latency. That support may make the game playable even among extremely distant players or with average internet connections.

New Features and Additions
Enemy outlines
  • Enemy silhouettes now have a faint outline, making them easier to see against dark floor tiles.
  • The intensity of this effect can be changed in the graphical options.
  • Enemies standing in total darkness or within a Nightmare's shadow do not have outlines.
Co-op target indicators
  • In co-op mode, enemies now indicate which player they are currently following via a small arrow pointing at the player.
  • Whenever an enemy's target player changes, this arrow appears for a few seconds before fading out.
  • The visibility of these indicators can be configured in the gameplay options.
Local co-op adjustments
  • Local co-op players now share their coin multipliers, gold counters, and spell inventories.
    • This also applies to Cadence and Dorian in Cadence's final boss fight in single-player.
  • Local co-op players always teleport together when entering or exiting a secret shop, while online co-op players can enter and leave separately.
New International Font
  • Crypt of the NecroDancer now uses the Silver pixel font to display international characters.
  • The original vector font from previous versions can be enabled in the language options.
Workshop mod extraction
  • The contents of resource packs downloaded from the Steam Workshop can now be explored by using the “open directory” option in the mod browser.
