Steelrising: Cagliostro's Secrets is the first story-driven DLC for Steelrising, a soulslike game released on September 9, 2022, telling an alternate history version of the French Revolution. It was developed by the original developers, Spiders studio, known for such titles as GreedFall and The Technomancer.
The story presented in the DLC focuses on the search for the royal agent, the notorious Comte de Cagliostro. To find him, the main character, automaton Aegis, has to go to St. Louis Hospital. This place hides a lot of secrets of King Louis XVI, linked to the alchemy that powers automatons, and according to urban legends, no one has left the walls of the building unscathed.
The events are presented as part of a new main quest, and in addition to it, the DLC also offers several side quests, allowing you to visit old locations in a new form. For their purposes, one new boss and two story characters have been introduced into the game.
The game's main mechanics remain unchanged. It is an action RPG drawing handfuls from the soulslike trend, which means arcade, dynamic combat and challenging bosses standing in our way. Not insignificant is the use of earned points to upgrade Aegis and the exploration of levels, allowing us to acquire many useful items.
The add-on introduces 5 brand new weapons, thanks to which we can get rid of opponents in more ways. This is important because many enemies received new attacks and variants, making clashes with them more challenging and diverse. We also received a choice of several new cosmetic items for Aegis.
To access the content of the add-on, you must complete the "Bastille" level in the main thread. If you only have a save from the final phase of the game, there is an option to refuse to finish the game and roll back the action until the add-on content is available.
The DLC didn't introduce any changes to the audiovisual setting.
