Roguelike card game Slay the Spire has escaped Early Access—our review is coming soon—after a fairly brisk 14-month stint. An update accompanies the launch, as well as a trailer that you can watch above. 

The game’s launch means the weekly updates will stop, but Mega Crit Games has plans for more “content”, along with some PC-specific features that the developer didn’t have enough time to finish before the release date. 

If you don’t want to trawl through a year of patch notes, Mega Crit’s put together a list of highlights from all the updates since November 14, 2017, including a new character, the final act and Steam Workshop support. Check out the entire list below. 

  • A third Character 
  • The final act 
  • Ascensions 
  • Daily climb 
  • Custom mode 
  • Seeded runs
  • Beta card portraits
  • Twitch beta integration
  • Upgradable colourless cards
  • Fast mode
  • Save slots
  • Boss map icons
  • Steam leaderboards
  • Steam Workshop support
  • Steam trading cards
  • Run history
  • Card library tabs
  • Rich Presence support
  • Controller support
  • 32-bit builds
  • Official soundtrack

The 1.0 update is a small one, mostly bug fixes and minor UI tweaks, such as fixing rare crashes and removing beta popups. Check out the patch notes here
