Upcoming 1.0.4 Update + We won that SXSW Award!



Hello everyball!

It has been some time since the last proper post, so let's catch up on what happened recently and talk about the upcoming 1.0.4 update!

Version 1.0.4 + Recent progress

The next major CrossCode update to version 1.0.4 is getting close!

Most content has been finished, however, a lot of texts still needs to be translated which is why we might not be able to make the release in April.
However, it will definitely still happen in the first half of May. Sorry for the delay!

And when it releases, here is what you can expect:

  • The Arena in Rhombus Square has finally opened and comes with 3 different cups: The Rookie Solo & Team Cup and the Dungeon Boss Cup!
  • New equipment and decorative add-on rewards you can get through the arena!
  • 2 new quests complete with new boss fights
  • A new repeatable Turret Defense challenge mode
  • Several small NPCs hidden throughout CrossWorlds here and there

In here a few impression on all those new features!


The lively arena lobby!



The arena cup menu with a list of challenges!



Your battle will be rated depending on your performance with 4 types of medals!



Medals will be rewarded with Arena coins that you can exchange for new equipment and new decorative Add-Ons, such as this Menacing aura!



And finally: more quests! Some of them will take you to very peculiar places!

Next steps

The next major feature we'll focus on, other than of course more quests, is now the New Game+ mode!

We haven't really spoken much about this New Game+ and a lot of things are still rather open. However, something you can expect is a very flexible feature that allows you to configure your next playthrough in different ways. You can choose to keep your level, equipment and brush through the game with ease, or go for a challenge and fight harder versions of the enemies and bosses with or without your end game stats & equipment. That's the idea at least! More details will follow.

The Post Game DLC is still on our list but it's very early in development. That's also why we still can't promise any release date just yet. It will happen, but it's also important to us that we don't rush it so you don't get a half-baked extension.

CrossCode won an Award!

Now here is something we really should have written quite some time ago, but we actually WON THAT SXSW AWARD!


Cross-Code won the Most-Fulfilling Community-Funded Game Award!

This was only possible thanks to the help of all of you voting for the game! Thank you so much!

Also: That photo might suggest otherwise, but that Award was not affiliated with Microsoft or Xbox. But while we're at it we might as well mention that CrossCode for Xbox One has been announced as well for 2019!

And that's it! Until next time!

CrossCode 1.0.3-3 – SPEED LINES



CrossCode Version 1.0.3-3 has just been released and finally features SPEED LINES!

We recently made the shocking discovery that over all those years, CrossCode's gameplay has been TOO SLOW.


Pictured: Regular CrossCode gameplay that is slow and has pacing issues.

In order to fix this issue, we added SPEED LINES!


Pictured: Improved CrossCode gameplay with speed lines for a faster and superior experience.

We also made a few trees more regular.

For now, the new Hotfix release is only available through Steam.

EDIT:
Happy April Fools' Day!

Yeah, that last update may have overdone it a bit with speed lines.
With today's update speed lines have been reduced to only appear in important combat events (because it's actually cool that way).

If you don't like those speed lines either, you can disable them in the option menu under the Video category.

If you actually miss having speed lines on every move, you can still use the Speedlines bonus code to enable them!

Same for the Regular-Trees.
