City of Brass ‘Fortunes Rivals’ Update Grants Players Free New Content
City of Brass, the Arabian Nights-inspired first-person adventure from the BioShock veterans at Uppercut Games, is adding new content with the “Fortunes Rivals” update, coming soon to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Three new characters have joined the quest to claim the fabled treasures awaiting at the heart of the city. The Traveler, Soldier, and Brigand all have their own backstory, weapons, and playstyles and inject new life into City of Brass.
The Soldier enters the city walls with a spear that can be used both to stab and hurl at undead foes. Meanwhile, The Brigand brings throwing knives to the fight and compensates for his weaker constitution with an increase in movement speed.
In addition to their starting loadout, characters will find distinct weapons and combat-modifying relics along the journey, like the multi-pronged “Trident of Puncturing” or enemy-freezing “Skewer of Chilling,” which help make each run feel special and play out differently from the last.
As well as adding new characters and gear, “Fortunes Rivals” allows players to select the whip and blade-wielding starting character’s gender, offering players another choice regardless of if they’ve earned enough ranks to unlock The Traveler, Soldier, or Brigand. Other changes include gameplay tweaks based on player feedback and Japanese localization.
