Witchfire's Big 'Ghost Galleon' Update Adds New Classes, Enemies, Weapons, And More

Witchfire’s big “Ghost Galleon” update is now live and brings with it new classes, enemies, weapons, spells, and more. The team behind Witchfire, The Astronauts, says today’s update is the “first major” patch for the game, which is why it contains so much additional content. 

Alongside new classes, enemies, weapons, and spells, the Ghost Galleon update also includes new events to take part in, a shop vendor offering novel items, and more features for players to explore. This update, like the game itself, is available right now on PC on the Epic Games Store. 

To go with today’s news, The Astronauts have released a new Witchfire trailer showcasing what you can expect: 

“Alongside the new features available in today’s patch, The Astronauts team has implemented careful redesigns of Witchfire’s level progression and Calamity systems, based on Early Access feedback,” a press release reads. “Players will begin the game with souls-style classes, granting boosts to certain stats and unique gear. Classes include Slayer, Berserker, Hunter, Shadow, Saint, and Pentinent – the final class is for Witchfire veterans seeking an extra challenge.” 

The Astronauts says a new feature called Gnosis will allow players to slightly over-level without a corresponding uptick in enemy difficulty. The team says Gnosis represents the players’ knowledge of dark magic and that as this occult knowledge expands, “players gain power and uncover hidden paths and events in the game.” The Ghost Galleon update also adds the Calamity Meter to the HUD, which shows players the steps they take to make Calamities more likely. 

Here are some screenshots from the Ghost Galleon update:
