Up for some co-op first-person exploration? Barony is a good choice and just recently a big update and DLC went live.

Barony is really good fun, although quite difficult and you will die a lot especially early on as you try and figure it out all but that's the fun of it. Each round you explore more, discover more, learn the tricks of taking down the various enemies and so on. It's a little gem.

The latest update overhauls Ranged Combat to actually make projectiles drop-off and no longer fly in a straight line, so your aim and what weapon you're using is now more important. They also added in a Longbow, Compound bow and Arbalest. There's also new quiver ammunition and first person animations. On top of that there's 64 new Steam Achievements, thrown items and gemstones now have a first-person animations, the lockpicking skill was replaced with a much more in-depth Tinkering skill and loads more changes.

Even bigger than the free content update is the brand new Legends & Pariahs DLC. This adds for new classes and monster races, each of them having unique gameplay. Check out the DLC trailer:

I'm also quite fond of the game.

The only thing I do not like is the "timer" put on by the eventual appearance of the minotaur.
But at least you get a notification if the level you are currently on will be "visited" by the minotaur.

Has the developer said if the expansion is coming to GOG?

Quoting: dulsiHas the developer said if the expansion is coming to GOG?
I would have thought so since the first DLC is, but GOG is slow atm due to holidays.

Great game, especially fun in multiplayer now that you can turn off inventory drop and the minotaur.
