Version 1.0 introduces a new final boss encounter with a cinematic ending, post-credits story content, additional scenarios, plus new items, enemies, challenges, and, of course, secrets. The full game arrives after nearly a year in Early Access, which spanned five major content updates that added new levels, bosses, the “Othermine” true roguelike mode, and more.
UnderMine, the action-adventure roguelike brimming with secrets from developer Thorium Entertainment, digs up version 1.0 on Aug. 6 for Xbox One, Windows PC, Mac, and Linux. Enjoyed by nearly 120,000 players during Steam Early Access, UnderMine will be available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers day-and-date across both Xbox One and Windows 10 with a host of new content and improvements.
Grab a pickaxe and delve into a mysterious mine where danger and riches await. Explore a hostile environment deep within the earth as a lowly peasant seeking freedom and fortune. Press further into the cavernous depths until that worker meets an untimely end and then send in the next poor sod, who will pick up their predecessor’s gear and hope a better fate.
Make the best of each peasant’s lot in life, using whatever’s on hand to aid in their subterranean travels and discover powerful relics, potions, gold, and more that someone, someday, might use to forge the perfect run. Along the way, miners will be forced to make tough decisions about whether to pinch pennies or spend their savings, going all-in to purchase a key item or upgrade.
Bomb walls and blow up rocks to uncover hidden passages, loot, and new allies buried within the mine while fending off the creatures that call its tunnels home. Then, at the end of each level, square off with massive, room-filling bosses that require strategy and skill to slay.
UnderMine launches Aug. 6 via the Xbox Game Pass subscription service and for $19.99 on Xbox One, Windows PC, Mac, and Linux. It is currently available via Steam Early Access for $14.99. UnderMine supports English, French, German, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Russian language options.
