Demeo - Roots of Evil Update
It’s time to leave the dark and cramped underworlds for a while and head into the wilderness for Demeo’s Roots of Evil Update. Step into the shoes of Molthas, a bard who may look harmless at first glance—but don’t be fooled. He uses the Mortal Sonnets, a set of forbidden songs that are lethal if they're sung correctly. Your journey continues, as the Elven Spirits lead you to Drych Forest. Destroy whatever evil hides in its shadows, but beware: The Druids of Drych will do everything in their power to stop you. And there is plenty more in store for Demeo! Two brand new adventures will arrive in 2022, with details to be revealed at a later date.

Lastly, you can express your flair in multiplayer lobbies and in solo play by using customizable colors and “decals” to decorate the platforms you stand ons.
