SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech released a free update that offers brand new content. One new feature added to the game that came with the update is the "New Game Plus" mode. In addition, the game is also being offered at a 20% discount on all platforms for a limited time.

The New Game Plus mode is unlocked once you complete the story. The mode allows the game to be replayed from the start with most of the non-story elements retained, such as items and cards. While you need to unlock the characters again, you get to access their respective card from the prior playthrough.

A new difficulty setting is also added with the update, Legend Remix. This is for players who have beaten the game and want something more, one that keeps them on their toes. Not only is the difficulty level increased, it offers a fair amount of gameplay twists. This difficulty setting is only available in the New Game Plus mode.

There is also a new art gallery that include various concept art and illustrations. Another new addition is the jukebox for players that simply wants to chill to the game's beautiful soundtrack.

Other game improvements include:

  • Added support for HD Rumble on Nintendo Switch
  • Increased stock on consumable items available in the merchant wagon
  • Reduced entry requirements for the “Midas Grand Prix” colosseum tournament
  • Balancing tweaks to numerous cards and items as well as smaller bug fixes

SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech is a turn-based RPG and deck-building game hybrid that is part of the SteamWorld franchise. The game is presented as a fairy tale that is told within the science fiction universe of SteamWorld Heist. As such, this version is not linked story-wise to the previous games. The game follows Armilly and Copernica, a pair of sentient steam-powered humanoid robots who set out on a journey to travel across a steamfunk fantasy world while fighting evil.

What awaits you is a luscious treasure chest filled with gold, dragons, vivid worlds, magic, knights in shining armor, XP, turn-based battles and all that good RPG stuff. The game’s humorous mix of traditional fantasy and steampunk robots makes for an unforgettable experience with lots of laughs.
