Skul: The Hero Slayer Gets its Reformation Update just in Time for Xbox GamePass

Skul: The Hero Slayer, the smash hit rogue-lite 2D platformer published by NEOWIZ and developed by SouthPAW Games, joins the ranks of Xbox GamePass today, and to celebrate the little skelly with all the crazy heads is getting a brand spanking new update.

More of a “Balance” update for Skul’s many wieldable noggins, the Reformation update takes a sweeping pass at the balance of most of the game’s skulls, adjusting factors like damage, skill cooldown, and range. In addition to the big balance update, the update also includes improved visuals and hit delay for all skulls.

The full patch notes can be found on Skul’s Steam Page.

Skul is also now available as part of Xbox GamePass on Xbox consoles and Windows PC.

More About Skul: The Hero Slayer

'Skul: The Hero Slayer' is an action-platformer that boasts rogue-like features such as ever-changing and challenging maps. It will keep you on your toes, as you will never know what to expect. Skul is no ordinary skeleton. In addition to his formidable fighting skills, he can gain new and exciting abilities depending on which skull he's wearing. Use up to 2 skulls at a time, each of which has its own unique attack range, speed, and power. Choose combos that match your playing style and switch them in the heat of battle to bring your enemies to their knees. The power is in your hands!

The human race attacking the Demon King's castle is nothing new and has happened countless times before. What makes this time different though, is that the Adventurers decided to join forces with the Imperial Army and the 'Hero of Caerleon' to lead a full onslaught in hopes of wiping out the Demons once and for all. They attacked the Demon stronghold with overwhelming numbers and succeeded in its total destruction. All of the demons in the castle were taken prisoner except for one lone skeleton named 'Skul'.
