Eclipse: Patch 0.1.8 Adds New Features, Enemies, and Weapons

Eclipse Steam

Eclipse is a hack-and-slash adventure game where you play as a warrior sent by an ancient god to save humanity. It looks quite similar to some popular titles, such as Path of Exile and Diablo III, though it does have its own unique charm.

A new update has been deployed recently that added several new features to the game, including the ability to rotate your character towards the mouse while running. This is done by holding the right mouse button when you’re moving, letting you rotate smoothly to hack enemies for the kill.

Additionally, there is a feature that makes you perform a dash by double-clicking the right mouse button.

There are times where melee combat is just not enough to kill your foes. That is why Patch 0.1.8 is a godsend as it adds new ranged weapons to your arsenal.


  • Added aiming mode (holding RMB), allows you to rotate the character towards the mouse while running and attack
  • without hovering the mouse over the enemy
  • Dash is now performed by double-clicking on the right mouse button
  • Added animations for running sideways, backward, diagonally, etc. for each type of weapon animation in aiming mode
  • Added tooltip for inventory management
  • Added background transparency to the character menu
  • Now the "ESC" button pauses the game
  • Increased arrow flight speed
  • Arrows no longer get stuck in doorways
  • Small redesign of the dialog box
  • Added animations for two-handed weapons
  • Adjusted the size of two-handed weapons
  • Added a new craft item "Booster" (Restores all the player's parameters by 150 units, health, mana, dash)
  • Removed Dash's recovery banks
  • Added a new item "Antidote" (removes negative effects)
  • Added a new item "Energy Shield"
  • Reworking the damage resistance system. Added a UI element to display negative and positive effects on the player
  • Enemies' health and effects are now displayed above their heads, except for mini-bosses. Their health is displayed separately on the player's screen.
  • New types of enemies:
    • Poisonous scorpion: Inflicts a negative poisoning effect on the player. Has immunity from poisoning.
    • Skeleton with a shield: Physical damage taken slightly less.
    • Fiery skeleton with a shield: Deals fire damage and a fire effect on the player. Resistant to fire.
    • Ice beetle: Inflicts a cold effect on the player. Has resistance to cold.

The game is still in Steam’s Early Access, but it has already garnered mostly positive reviews on the platform. Plus, the good thing is that there is still a lot of room for improvement before it is fully launched in the future.

Eclipse Patch 0.1.8 is available on PC.
