indie hit escape from vampires Expanding with a new mode called Adventures. Coming soon to all platforms, there will also be a mini-story mode that will be free for all players.

escape from vampires was a breakout hit in 2022, earning multiple awards for its minimalist action gameplay that has already inspired a new genre. Since then, developer Poncal has continued to support the game with new content. Adventures may be its most ambitious update yet, adding an entirely new mode.

In the FAQ, Poncal describes Adventures as a mini-story mode where players control specific characters through missions that have their own objectives and victory conditions. The gameplay appears to be very similar to the usual take on Vampire Survivors, but with custom rules for each mission, lore, and unique progression hooks. It will also feature an ascension system, which will add more rewards on subsequent playthroughs. All story missions are playable in co-op.

Adventures is set to launch soon on Steam, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android and will be a free update. Ponkle says that some of the adventure missions are linked to the base game’s DLC, so players will have to pick them up if they want to play them all. The mode will launch with two free missions and one DLC adventure.

Of course, the biggest question is whether or not the update will include vampires, who don’t appear in it despite the game’s titles. Poncal confirms what you can expect to see in Adventures: “At least as many as the main game, if not more.”
