Skul: The Hero Slayer’s Massive New Update Adds Epic Castle Defense and Mythology

Fans of the hit indie rogue-lite Skul: The Hero Slayer have an exciting new update to look forward to this week. Developers SouthPAW Games announced that the Demon King Castle Defense and Mythology Pack will launch on November 15th for PC.

Demon King Castle Defense

The highly anticipated Demon King Castle Defense mode promises to enhance Skul’s addictive hack-and-slash gameplay with epic castle defense battles. Players must strategically place traps and turrets to withstand hordes of enemies attempting to infiltrate the Demon King’s castle. With multiple entrances to guard and waves of foes to conquer, this new mode is sure to provide a challenging and thrilling test of tactical skill.

Console players need not fret, as SouthPAW Games confirmed that the Demon King Castle Defense update will arrive on PlayStation and Xbox shortly after the PC release. Further updates for console platforms are also in active development, ensuring parity across all versions of the game.

Mythology Pack DLC

In addition to the main attraction of Demon King Castle Defense, the Mythology Pack DLC will introduce exciting new mythological content. The pack includes 5 new playable hero classes with unique abilities tied to legends like Excalibur and Mjolnir. Equipping these mythic Skulls allows players to embody Herculean heroes, wield the power of lightning, and more.

The Mythology Pack also contains 20 novel in-game items themed around myths and legends. With mystical swords, epic armor sets, and artifacts from lore, players can fully embrace the fantasy. An exclusive new inscription further augments builds, rounding out the DLC’s mythological enhancements.

For those seeking even more variety and replayability from Skul: The Hero Slayer, the Mythology Pack unlocks valiant new potential. Diving into procedural dungeon runs with Excalibur in hand breathes fresh life into the Skul experience.

Since its launch in early access in 2020, Skul: The Hero Slayer’s pixelated retro style, responsive combat, and Rogue-lite elements earned it a passionate fan base. This major content update shows the developers are committed to building on that solid core with substantial expansions.

The Demon King Castle Defense and Mythology Pack update exemplifies how post-launch support should be done. Rather than churning out pointless cosmetics, SouthPAW Games chose to cultivate Skul’s world and mechanics. This ethos results in an update sure to satisfy players eagerly awaiting the chance to jump back into the fray.

Coming November 15th

With a packed update releasing November 15th and even more support planned, there has never been a better time to either return to Skul: The Hero Slayer or dive in for the first time. The game’s signature challenge and charm will soon be bolstered by mythic heroes and castle defense warfare. PC players can prepare to take on the Demon King’s hordes and equip the legendary weapons of lore when the massive update drops next week.

I've been playing games for pretty much as long as I can remember. There's about 15 years of gaming experience under my belt at this point. Destiny, Warframe, Halo, CoD and the list goes on. I was a brief world record holder for Destiny 2 speedrunning, as well as a season-long stint as a top 10 ranked PVP player. More recently, I've been shooting for the Celeste speedrun leaderboards. In-between sessions of getting too mad at shooters, I spend a lot of my time playing gacha games like Honkai Star Rail and Limbus Company.
