Eldritch Edition! Switch! Xbox One! Collector's box ship date! (!!!)

Posted by Thunder Lotus Games (Creator)

It's beginning to look a lot like Eldritch!

Behold! Sundered: Eldritch Edition!
Behold! Sundered: Eldritch Edition!

Hey everyone,

Holy cats, so much news to get through today! Did you catch the announcement? Sundered: Eldritch Edition is coming December 21st to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC/Mac/Linux, and PlayStation 4!

Queue the epic announcement trailer!

What's an Eldritch Edition?

Hey, that's a great question, and I'm super glad you asked that, Bill. Sundered: Eldritch Edition is the definitive edition of the game, containing all previous updates, along with the brand new Magnate of the Gong update! Needless to say, you all will be receiving this new content as a free update to your digital copies. Here’s what’s being added in this latest version: 

  • Local co-op: It’s dangerous to go alone, especially through Sundered’s ever-changing caverns. So we’ve added local co-op multiplayer support for up to 4 players! 
  • New areas and quest chain: We’ve added several unique new areas throughout the existing map. Complete a quest chain of special challenges in the new areas to unlock rewards and the path to a brand new boss! 
  • This handsome fellow:
Meet the Magnate of the Gong!
Meet the Magnate of the Gong!
  • And that’s just the big stuff! We’ve added a ton of smaller features and improvements under the hood! Full patch notes will be posted when it launches on December 21st.

We're so stoked to finally be able to share this new content with you! Let us know what you think in the comments!

Nintendo Switch and Xbox One, you say?

The legends were true! Remember the oft-repeated prayers to bring this baby to the the red and/or green team, which were systematically met with a "we'll see what the future holds"? Well, the future is now, and it holds two very positive answers! Sundered launches for the first time on Switch and Xbox One on December 21st.

Almost Christmassy... except for the Eldritch part.

Keep your eyes open between now and the 21st for contests that'll give you a chance to win yourself a download code for Switch or Xbox One!

In the meantime, if you're feeling like sending still more love and support our way, thank you - you're a lovely individual. It may interest you to know that Sundered: Eldritch Edition is available now for pre-order on Nintendo Switch!

We were also able to set up a promotion exclusively for the North American Nintendo eShop

  • If you do already own Jotun on Nintendo Switch, you get 25% off your Sundered pre-order! 


  • If you don't already own Jotun, after you pre-order Sundered on Switch, you'll see a nice 33% discount on Jotun!

Sweet, no? Apologies to our fans in the European region - this promo is only offered in North America.

Kickstarter-Exclusive Physical Collector's Box Ship Date!

We are totally not kidding this time. It's here: the Kickstarter-Exclusive Physical Collector's Box ship date is now confirmed! Circle the following date on your calendar:

Friday, December 21st, 2018.

Say now, that date sounds familiar! That's right, we're doing both the Sundered: Eldritch Edition digital release *and* shipping the collector's box on the very same Friday before Christmas!

And you know what that means! Ah yes, it's time yet again for me to remind you to double-check your shipping addresses. (groan.) 

Bear with me, folks - this is important. And not everyone is as responsible as you, Bill. 

So: If you're outside the U.S., please be sure to include your phone number (it's marked optional, but international shipping sometimes requires one). Even if you know your address hasn't changed, do yourself a favor and double-check what we have on file for you - an errant typo could end up keeping you from receiving your Collector's Box! 

Reminder - how to check your shipping address:  

  • Log in to Kickstarter; 
  • Go to the main Sundered campaign page; 
  • Click on "View pledge"; 
  • Click the "Survey" tab.
Click on "View Pledge" > "Survey"
Click on "View Pledge" > "Survey"

Let it be known that I'll be starting the admin process to lock in your addresses one week before shipping, on Friday, December 14th. Kickstarter will then send you a 48 hour warning, after which those addresses become set in stone. Whatever address is in there gets the Collector's Box delivered to it.

Stay tuned for final Collector's Box pics and content!

"Pics or it didn't happen!" 

I was hoping to have some actual pictures to share with you for today's announcement, but the lovely and talented folks getting these things printed need just a little more time. So if y'all don't mind waiting a little while longer, stay tuned for a follow-up post that will answer all your questions about The Box!

So what do you say, folks? Y'all excited to finally get the definitive Sundered edition in your hands (either digitally or physically)? Let us know how you feel in the comments!

Cheers, talk soon!

      While playing it, our XboxOne restarted unprompted +when it rebooted our save files were gone. Save 1 was 90% complete +save 2 was 40% but after restart we only had our original file at 50%. Our internet went out momentarily around then. Is there any way to help us get them back?

      Cool, thanks for the ongoing support, @Darren! :D

      Oh, yes, I know it was all sorted out (and fairly quickly, too), but as much as I'd like to enjoy playing games on my PC, I just don't. I'm definitely going to dive into the Switch release, though (but I might have to finish a few other games before I start playing this one).

    4. Thunder Lotus Games Creator on

      @Joel - This is indeed the final content update for the game.

      @Darren - Sorry that you had problems with the PC version! There were some issues at launch, but as far as crashes go, it's been smooth sailing for the average PC user since the first patch. Let us know if you dive back in!

    5. Darren Lipman

      I was hoping for a "switch code to Switch" update (since I haven't touched the PC version for more than 5 minutes in its earliest...and, but I understand that's not possible. Either way, I'm super excited to buy this on my Switch--thank you so much for putting in the extra effort to bring this game onto the Switch! There's already a great library of games on the system, and this puts it over the top. Can't wait to play it! And I eagerly await news of your next game as well!

      Is this the final content update for the game then?

    7. Brian

      I’m hella excited, Bill! Already have the PS4 key but I may need to grab on Switch too..

    8. Fire-Dragon-DoL on

      @Thunder Lotus Games thanks! That's amazing ;)

      @Shawn Heatherly: This is the fabled DLC!

      @Snake2715: That's correct - A Switch or Xbox One version of this game wasn't planned back when the campaign was live, and when we delivered digital codes back in July 2017. Sorry to say that Switch or Xbox One digital codes will not be offered as backer rewards for this campaign.

      Awesome news! I waited to even touch the game for this announcement. One question and I believe I know the answer already.. there was no offer for a switch digital code anywhere correct? I know when this games campaign was going on the switch likely wasn't even a thought but with those of us backers that backed at high enough tiers and had a digital code included as a reward we didn't get an option to change our code request to switch did we? I'm hoping I missed that option and it was still available but figured it's unlikely so wanted to clarify.

      I tried to click on survey but it doesn’t show up?

      Local co-op is a surprise, and a welcome one at that. Is this update the DLC that's been alluded to?

    14. Thunder Lotus Games Creator on

      @Fire-Dragon-DoL - It's full game local coop, and more difficult depending on the amount of players.

    15. Fire-Dragon-DoL on

      So, the local coop is amazing: I just had a newborn and justifying single-player game time is hard, but doing that with wife is totally allowed!

      Will I be able to play the full game with local coop or is it like a subset (some kind of vs-mode or such)?

      Also, is the game the same difficulty or do the monsters get more health and such?

      It's hard to find words to tell you things right now and being "respectful and considerate" when i read this :

      "We are totally not kidding this time. It's here: the Kickstarter-Exclusive Physical Collector's Box ship date is now confirmed! Circle the following date on your calendar:

      Friday, December 21st, 2018."

      you are choosing the worst moment across the world to ship your box. why why why whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?
      Please ship it at another time, i beg you! there's so many ways for this shipment to end badly.

    17. Thunder Lotus Games Creator on

      @Kevin - I'll check with our partners to see if any discount codes are possible, but that's not something I've heard of before. Do you know of any other campaigns that were able to offer it?

      I'm really excited for local co-op too! Any idea how much the xbox one game will be selling for? Will kickstarter backers get a discount code?

    19. Battle Boar Allbrotnar on

      Wow, I am so hyped for local co-op!
