Read up on new details for Moonlighter's "Between Dimensions" DLC

Dimension-hopping fun

The "Between Dimensions" DLC for Moonlighter has gone live on PC today, which has given us a host of new information to share. This same DLC will be coming to Switch later this year, but no firm date has been set.

The Between Dimensions DLC expands on the main experience by letting fearless adventurers descend into an all-new Interdimensional Dungeon while filling current dungeons with new creatures alongside offering a bunch of new weapons, armors, shop items, and rings.

After a tumultuous time, the village of Rynoka was once again at peace thanks to the brave adventures of the hero-merchant, Will. Sadly, the serenity was short-lived as an unknown cryptic Portal has strangely appeared out of nowhere. Does it bring with it a new threat? Yeah, it probably does. But Will’s merchant sense tells him it could also mean something else… profit! Stepping into the unknown is even more tempting if you think about all the new precious loot that awaits only the bravest of explorers.

Accessing the Between Dimensions DLC requires players to have finished the main game. Some content noted below will be available to all owners of the base game free of charge.

Between Dimensions DLC features:

A brand-new Interdimensional Dungeon (with a chance for it to appear as a Corrupted Dungeon in the original dungeons!)
10 all-new original enemies and 5 minibosses
A full set of weapons with a new short sword, large sword, bow, gloves, and spear
A new set of armor with a helmet, chest, and boots
Trick weapons – 10 unique weapons in total – both powerful… and punishing!
New rings for boosting Will’s passive abilities
New shop upgrade allowing Will to showcase his new Interdimensional Items
New customers wanting to trade and an unfamiliar NPC: The Trader
Additional story and lore
New thieves to invade your shop (free content)
A new client - the indecisive customer (free content)
A bothersome bird terrorizing your customers (free content)

Lighting the way

The wind of change is blowing through Rynoka. A new, cryptic Portal appeared out of nowhere. Does it bring a new threat? Or is it a new way to make an easy profit? And most importantly… are you prepared to enter the unknown?

Between Dimensions is the biggest Moonlighter expansion so far. The DLC enlarges the main experience by filling current dungeons with new creatures, populating all-new Interdimensional Dungeon with mini-bosses, swarming the adventure with new weapons, armory, shop items, and rings.

A one-year anniversary event

Baby Moonlighter, born on May 29th, 2018 was a quick learner. Despite the games market hardships, this young indie title proved to be a strong contender in the intensely competitive gaming community. With continued growth, Moonlighter gained trust and appreciation from its fans thanks to the numerous updates it sprouted — the More Stock Update, Adventure Update, Friends & Foes, and more. On top of that, Moonlighter broadened its territory — starting on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One hunting grounds, it bravely took over the Nintendo Switch environment.

Now, entering its adult stage of life, Moonlighter is ready to show off its own offspring to the world! The Between Dimensions DLC will populate the game’s world with new monsters, a new dungeon, plenty of new gear, and trick weapons. Be sure not to miss any of them. Trust us, you’ll be amazed!

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of Moonlighter, Digital Sun Games has temporarily dropped the price of the game. You can grab it right now for $15 instead of $25.

Moonlighter’s ‘Friends and Foes’ Update Adds New Companions Just in Time for Valentine’s Day

Warsaw, Poland, February 13, 2019 - A very wise person once said that a true friendship is born the moment one person says to another, “Let’s slay some monsters together!”. We certainly wouldn’t want to disagree with ‘a very wise person’ so as part of the new Moonlighter ‘Friends & Foes’ update, launching today for free on all platforms, Digital Sun and 11 bit studios are introducing nine new companions to the game.

Now, even though the freshly introduced nine familiars can’t really talk, they’re more than happy to aid you during your most dangerous adventures to the dungeons outside the merchant village of Rynoka. We wouldn’t want to make Moonlighter too easy, of course, so to counterbalance your buddy upgrades the developers have also added brand-new, ferocious minibosses (so hopefully you and your new companions are getting on well with each other. You’re gonna need all the help you can get!).


Companions — Nine new familiars have arrived to aid you in your dungeon crawling! Kill a particular enemy 10 times and a very special egg will appear! Give the egg three days to hatch and your fresh-faced familiar will be ready for action! Each sporting different mechanics, they can damage enemies, restore your life, get items for you, act as an additional chest, and more!
Minibosses — Eight new minibosses are here to challenge you! They will appear as guardians of the dungeons, securing gateways leading to deeper rooms. They will emerge at the end of the first and second floor in each dungeon.
Zenon’s Campfire — From now on, when you visit the dungeons at night, Zenon will be there, sitting by his campfire, ready to tell you some forgotten stories of Rynoka and Moonlighter’s world. Those tales will be unlocked with the game’s progression.
Tomo Stories — We've modified and added more lines for Tomo. They should explain her relationship with Will better, shedding some light on their mutual past.
Banker Information — We have introduced a lot of special warnings and UI changes to avoid the Banker "stealing" your money. A lot of you forgot to revisit that mustachioed capitalist and were losing the investment.
Sorting Items — We've added a sorting mechanic inside the inventory.
Get the Broom! — We’ve added the possibility to get the Broom™ from Le Retailer (if you’ve managed to lose it somehow!). The Broom™ is important for getting some achievements - so we hope you like this little feature!
Prices Update — We’ve added a new system in the Shop to better inform whenever an item’s price gets updated.
+ Minor changes and Fixes
