Dark Souls-inspired action RPG Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is receiving a new, free update next month, bringing with it a whole host of new content including a giant armoured chicken boss. Yep.

As well as this giant chicken beast (which you can experience in all its glory in the GIF below), you can also expect to find additional game modes and two new weapons to try out. A recent press release contains all the details you need:

New Game+ will add three new challenges for the ultimate tests of skill. The Trial of Speed will grant Adam swiftness in exchange for losing invulnerability during dodge rolls, Trial of Consequence will make death permanent and Trial of the Sinner will combine both modifiers for the most challenging experience yet.

The haunting action RPG’s arsenal of bosses will expand with the addition of Cowardly Modic, the fowl-est boss yet, a giant deadly armored chicken. Defeat the brutal bird to unlock two weapon sets based on other bosses’ kits, twin swords and a sword and shield combo, to complement Adam’s already powerful arsenal.


We had mixed feelings on the game in our review last year, saying that "Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is a valiant attempt to cut away some action-RPG fat in order to get to the meat of its boss battles, but a lack of consistent quality makes this boss-rush concept a frustrating experience at times". Hopefully, this new content will go some way towards making it a more enjoyable experience overall.

The update is scheduled to go live on 19th February and will be free to all players.
