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:
- 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.
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!

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.
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!
