The making of the Undead Cyclops boss from Castle Crashers

Sure the game has been out since September of last year, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy a behind the scenes look at Castle Crashers! This 19 minute long video shows the entire process Dan Paladin went ...

Castle Crashers: King's Pack DLC announced for tomorrow! photo
Castle Crashers: King's Pack DLC announced for tomorrow!
by Jim Sterling

If you're willing to forgive and forget the whole "I waited half a year for a God damn patch" thing, then you'll be thrilled to know that The Behemoth is unleashing its first DLC pack for Castle Crashers, the King's Pack.

Costing 160 Microsoft Points and releasing Wednesday, January 14, the King's Pack includes the following:

  • Two playable characters -- The King and an Open Faced Gray Knight.
  • The King's Heal Spell, which heals everybody in the party.
  • Three new weapons, one of which is the Gold Sword.
  • A new animal orb named Pelter.

I'm not sure if I'll be getting it myself, at least anytime soon, since I stopped playing CC long before it was patched (the fact that the bug finally did wipe all my data in the end hasn't helped). However, for those encouraged to keep it up, this is sure to be great news.

Perhaps once the Necromancer makes his playable appearance, we can talk.

Castle Crashers patch is coming TONIGHT! YAY! photo
Castle Crashers patch is coming TONIGHT! YAY!
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

That’s right boy and girls; Microsoft has finally approved the Castle Crashers patch. The title update will be live in the next few hours at 2AM Pacific and should address all issues with online play, game saves and all of the other little exploits. The Behemoth will have a detailed post on the Dev Blog sometime on Wednesday detailing all the specifics.

It’s been a long hard bumpy road for the Castle Crashers team. The game out in August to rave reviews but then people started to have a ton of problems with the it. Patches were promised and it has taken nearly four months for the patch to finally be approved. 

Personally, I didn’t care too much about the issues with the game. I have yet to play online with anyone, but I enjoyed the experience and got its worth after playing through the game a few times. Now I have a reason to go back and play the game finally with you all on Friday Night Fights. Of course, I understand all the anger over the game and have to wonder if it’s too little, too late.

[Thanks, Buck F1tches]
