Dirge: Players Must Cleanse the Blight Scourge in Patch v0.2.4

Dirge Steam

It looks like players have a new task at hand in Dirge. Patch v0.2.4 brings some interesting additions and changes - one of which is a new task where players are assigned to cleanse the Blight Scourge.

The blight was spread by the horrifying Twig Blights to the forest surrounding the mansion. Players must do everything they can to stop it from spreading even further.

Aside from that, Patch v0.2.4 for Dirge improved the game’s realism. Guns can no longer be used while swimming, and players will now ragdoll upon death, which may prevent them from falling into walls.
