As part of its latest patch, Slay the Spire introduces its fourth playable character. The Watcher joins the lineup of characters fighting their way to the top of the spire.
The Watcher is available now in a free download on all platforms. Back in the beta testing phase for the Watcher, her unique mechanic were stances: The Watcher can enter, remain in, or exit her stances using different cards, producing advantages from each stance. As with every character in Slay the Spire, the Watcher arrives with her own unique Relics.
Elsewhere in patch v2.0, even more potions have been added to the Potion Lab. There's now a screen where you can view all the potions available, you can look up the rarities of new and existing potions, and these can all be found in the Compendium section of the main menu.
The patch notes detail that existing mods compatible with version 1.1 of Slay the Spire will need to be updated in order to work with the new version 2.0. If you need any help with updating existing mods, Mega Crit Games advise you to head over to the Slay the Spire Discord.
You can find the full list of additions to Slay the Spire over on the Steam Community page. Patch 2.0 actually introduces a ton of new Relics for each character, including 13 Relics for the Watcher, two Relics for Ironclad, one new Relic for Silent, and two new Relics for the Defect.
Slay the Spire impressed us when it exited its early access phase and found its way to the Nintendo Switch. Originally launching with the Ironclad, Silent, and Defect, the Watcher update seems to add a few good ways to change up your average run to the top of the spire.
