Digerati Distribution is pleased to announce that an update for the recently released Monster Slayers, a deck-building roguelike created by developer Nerdook, is now available and adds six new classes to the game: Assassin, Beastmaster, Apothecary, Brute, Monk, and Necromancer. All of the extra classes also come with their own selection of brand new custom cards.

Each of the new class types are 'Advanced' versions of the six existing classes and are unlocked by completing the game with the corresponding 'Basic' class, like so:

  • Rogue unlocks Assassin
  • Ranger unlocks Beastmaster

If a player has already completed the game with one or more of the basic classes, the corresponding advanced classes will be automatically unlocked when the update is installed.

The new content is available for free by simply playing the game and unlocking each class as explained above, but there is also the option to purchase the Advanced Class Unlocker for $1.99/€1.99/£1.59 to get all the new content instantly.
