Vampire Survivors continues to roll out new DLC in ever weirder, extra pleasant packages this month with Operation Weapons, a full-on crossover between the worlds of Vampire Survivors and long-running shoot-em-up slash bullet hell slash motion arcade collection Contra. 

“Are you a nasty sufficient Vampire Survivor to avoid wasting the President’s cousin’s sister’s canine from the traitor squadrons of Crimson Falcon?” asks the DLC description. Which I suppose is a reputable query to ask within the context of Vampire Survivors and in addition the skepticism-crushing enjoyment of current reboot Contra: Operation Galuga.

The DLC has one thing like 11 new characters and 22 new weapons, together with evolutions, together with three new pickups. And a few of them are ridiculous. There are airstrikes and spread-shot blasters and “almost-smart missiles.” One of many characters is a cyborg werewolf or man-dog or dog-soldier or one thing.

The brand new map is fairly dang cool, too, a horizontal trio of related ranges that has its personal hordes of enemies and executives to take down. Scrolling from left to right you’lll discover the jungles of Galuga, the ruins of Neo Metropolis, and a desolate alien zone. There’s additionally a problem stage that has you leap on a jetbike and burn down thes freeway in true Contra model.

What will definitely be an attraction for this one is that it features a massive stack of Contra tracks and covers to get pleasure from. For a few of you, that will not matter, however for others it’s going to unleash a tidal wave of nostalgia too highly effective to cease.

You will discover Vampire Survivors: Operation Weapons on Steam.

Both means, I am guessing Crimson Falcon does not have any vampires in it and we’ll must hold trying.
