Hellion's Escape - New Playable Character, Gear and Enemies added to City of Brass

Welcome to Update 1.3: Hellion's Escape

Hellion's Escape adds a new playable character, The Hellion, as well as new Weapons and Relics to pursue. The update also includes new enemies: the Floating Pyri and the Half-Man!

Check out the Trailer below!


The Hellion
Having been freed from the prison of his genie lamp, the Hellion found himself still trapped within the City of Brass and its eternal curse. Now he struggles to reach the center of the city and free himself once and for all
  • Hardier than the other rivals, but slower moving.
  • Press and hold to charge up a lunging punch, release to punch.
  • Unlocks at rank 9
  • Comes with 6 new Achievements

Along with the new Playable Character class we wanted to add more variation to the early game. Each new game will present the player with a variety of different enemies and more varied level layouts, making each new run feel different.

The Half-Man

Walking on its hands, this tormented creature emits a scathing blast of sand when close.

The Floating Pyri

This hovering spirit will drift ever closer, until it is near enough to explode.

The Hellion comes with his own new set of Weapons and Relics - can you find them all?

As we continue to support and update City of Brass, part of this process is keeping the game up to date using the latest version of the Unreal Engine. Nothing exciting to report this time around, but every time we update the Engine, City of brass continues to receive bug fixes and performance improvements provided by EPIC Game's Engine Development team.

What's Next? - August 20th News

Good morning, afternoon or evening, depending on where you are in the world!

Today wanted to give you a glimpse of the weapons and relics that we're working on - they add some new wrinkles to the way you'll move through and interact with the city, and of course we can't have a new Rival without them.

Next week we'll be revealing the name and nature of the next update - we're looking forward to finally letting you know exactly what we've been working on.

See you next week!

About This Game

First-Person Arabian Nights Rogue-Lite!

Become a daring thief in City of Brass, a first-person action adventure from senior BioShock developers. Armed with scimitar and a versatile whip, you’ll lash and slash, bait and trap your way to the heart of an opulent, Arabian Nights-themed metropolis – or face certain death as time runs out.

Welcome to Update 1.3: Hellion's Escape

Hellion's Escape adds a new playable character, The Hellion, as well as new Weapons and Relics to pursue. The update also includes new enemies: the Floating Pyri and the Half-Man! ... and more coming soon!

This City Has Teeth!

Players will have to leap across pits, slide under blades, avoid spears or arrows, evade or employ sprung paving slabs, and skirt round poison gas traps – all the while manipulating these dangers to their advantage against enemies.

Deadly Magic, Mischievous Genies!

Incarcerated within the city are genies, most of them friendly, who will barter benefits in return for loot or grant wishes for a powerful advantage.

Endless Death, Eternal Replayability!

The rhythmic interplay between sword and whip is carefully tuned along with sprinting, crouching, sliding, leaping and vaulting to give a fluid, balanced and natural feel to the movement and melee. Eternal replayability is granted by a design that encourages combinative gameplay within an ever-changing but logical procedurally generated world. Players will die in the City of Brass – often, and quite horribly – but they will always want to come back for just one more try…
