Developer The Game Kitchen has launched Stir of Dawn, a free DLC update for challenging Metroidvania-esque action-platformer Blasphemous. Aside from new animations, executions and various other tweaks, the DLC package notably introduces a New Game+ mode featuring fresh storyline content with additional areas and boss encounters. In this mode, players are also able to tackle the horrors of Blasphemous in new and exciting ways by selecting one of the so-called Three Penitences: Unwavering Faith will favor magic-users with regenerating fervour and weakened melee attacks, Bleeding Heart changes the way your HP bar functions and introduces respawning enemies every time you switch screens, while True Guilt adds a Dark Souls-esque mechanic where you can potentially lose all your Tears of Atonement for good if you die repeatedly.

Blasphemous is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch.
