4th character for Slay the Spire has release date on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to developer Mega Crit Games. Coming to Free along with other fixes and balance changes. Which is already, technically available on Steam. The same goes if you own the game via Humble Store too.
Access the 4th character
Slay the Spire‘s 4th character is available in the “beta – branch”. So to be able to play The Watcher in this beta. You will need to have beaten the game at least once. Before with the previously introduced character, The Defect.
Also, if you haven’t done that. You can also easily move your save data over from the folders.
Yes, we currently support Linux and the 4th character will be no change in that regard. Day 1.
Beating the game and having the Defect unlocked will unlock the 4th character. Therefore, if you already meet these requirements. You will have access to The Watcher character as soon as you start the game.
Slay the Spire – Official Launch Trailer
You can also use your saves from the main branch. Doing so before you embark using The Watcher (4th character).
Likewise, it’s a good idea to back up your saves from that main branch. Simply open the game properties and under the LOCAL FILES tab select BROWSE LOCAL FILES. Create a copy of your preferences folder. Then rename it betaPreferences (case sensitive).
Therefore, if you run into issues. Ask the nice folks at the Slay the Spire Discord server.
This previous update not only comes with the 4th character. But also brings about new relics, new potions, and balance changes. There are also other random goodies during the test period. And that Fire Breathing card was reworked. With the release date of January 14th. I’m also interested to see the turn around for the Linux content.
IF you want access to the 4th character for Slay the Spire get started now. Available for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Check it out on Humble Store, Steam and coming to GOG (after the full release). Priced at $24.99 USD.
