The long-awaited free DLC for Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is finally here. Aside from new acts available in the Crystal Wraiths, there are new bosses, lore items, and a trophy for you to earn as well.

While the new content is definitely something to look forward to, there are also many bug fixes and improvements worth mentioning.

When you are playing on Xbox or Playstation, the game would instantly recognize the initial controller after the second one is disconnected. Besides that, all PC terminologies are no longer present on consoles.

In terms of UI and UX improvements, you can now skip the Tally Screen at the end of each mission.

You can also view your equipped gear and peruse the Moves section even when you are on a mission. You will be able to maximize all of your abilities as cooldown timers have been added for your convenience.

If you’ve changed any of the performance parameters, you might be happy to know that these settings will no longer go back to their defaults after re-opening the Options screen.
