You’ve been patiently waiting, and the wait is almost over! Version 1.3 of Sentinels of the Multiverse has been submitted to Apple for app review. Pending approval, it will be available on all supported platforms on Tuesday, April 14th. Please note that this date could change if there are delays in the review process.

The update will include the ability to get the Rook City expansion as DLC. It will cost $4.99 (or local equivalent) no matter what store you buy it on. Expansion Season Pass 1 owners will automatically receive Rook City. If you don’t have the Season Pass yet, you can still pick it up and save money! Rook City includes Expatriette, Mr. Fixer, The Chairman, The Matriarch, Plague Rat, Spite, Pike Industrial Complex, and Rook City.

We’ve added lots more to the update, including all-new damage dealing animations and other features & fixes.

Join us on our live stream tonight at 8 Eastern for more exclusive previews of the update and Rook City content! We’ll be facing the sinister mastermind behind Pike Industrial and Rook City itself: The Chairman.

Future Plans

On January 1st we posted about our estimated timeline for the expansion content. We’re happy to say that we’ve been very close to our estimates! If you’re familiar with software development, you’ll understand that this is no small feat.

We estimated Mini-Pack 1 would be available around January, and Rook City would be available around March. Our final release dates are very close to those estimates, but we received negative feedback as some players incorrectly interpreted the estimates as release dates. To some, the expansions have been perceived as “delayed” or “late” when that is not at all the case. Going forward, our public estimates will be listed as seasons only, not months.

Expansion pack content will be released when it’s completed and at a satisfactory level of quality. Other major features (like online multiplayer) are being worked on in parallel and have a separate release timeline. As we reach notable milestones we’ll be sure to let you know how things are going!

We are currently already hard at work on Infernal Relics. Here are our updated estimates for the next few expansion packs.

  • Infernal Relics - Spring/Summer 2015
  • Mini-Pack 2 - Summer 2015

  • Shattered Timelines - Summer/Fall 2015

  • Wrath of the Cosmos - Fall 2015

  • Mini-Pack 3 - Fall 2015

As always, we will keep you posted if anything changes. Subscribe to our Twitch channel for our weekly live streams to get your first sneak previews of Infernal Relics!
