A bridge too far?

Indie hit Vampire Survivors is getting an update that adds a new character and stage.

After leaving Early Access with its recent 1.0 update, Vampire Survivors brings even more monster-themed mayhem with its 1.1 “Tiny” update.

The new patch launches today and adds a new stage, the Tiny Bridge, which sees your favorite survivors fighting for survival atop, well, a bridge. “Two bloodthirsty factions battle atop a bridge, and our heroes find themselves caught in the middle,” reads the announcement.

The stage is a lot more cramped than your usual Vampire Survivors stages, so watch out for those choke points.

Vampire Survivors is also adding a new secret character called Scorej-Oni. An ancient creature that sounds like it’s based on the Japanese Oni, it gets a hidden Lightning Ring every eight levels.

There’s also a new Seal Power Up that allows players to banish an item from level-up choices, or a pickup from light choices, presumably focussing your build on items you really need. Additionally, there are two new achievements, but you’ll have to dive in to find out what those are.

Patch 1.1 also includes some minor fixes, including improvements to the pause menu, loading times, and more.

Vampire Survivors recently added a dog that farts flowers as part of its continuous updates following the game’s viral success. It became the most-played game on Steam Deck in August and retained the title the following month. Vampire Survivors is now also available on Xbox Game Pass.

IGN’s review of Vampire Survivors gave it 7/10 and said: “It may look extremely basic, but if you give Vampire Survivors' clever one-stick shooter idea a chance to sink its teeth into you it might not let go for a while.”
