The first major post-launch update for the action-packed roguelike Burning Knight is out now. On top of new content, there's also now local co-op support.

What is Burning Knight? It's a real-time action roguelike built in the spirit of Nuclear Throne, Enter The Gungeon and others like it. You get a different area to run through each time, facing off against various enemies and traps as you progress through a castle.

Along with a a month-long Halloween event, here's the highlights of what's new in the Spooky Emeralds update:

  • Local Co-op
  • New secrets to find
  • New items, enemies and hats
  • A lot of bug fixes and a balance pass on items

Also, if you missed it we did an interview with the developer back in July that's worth a read. At the time the release had not gone as well as they had hoped, so perhaps a free expansion like this might get it some more attention - especially with the addition of local co-op.

Want to pick up a copy of Burning Knight? You can buy Burning Knight on and Steam. You can also grab the soundtrack on Bandcamp.
