The major Vampire Survivors version 1.8 update with Adventures went live earlier today on Steam and Xbox platforms, but will be out on mobile and Switch soon. This big free update brings in the Adventure Mode. Adventures are self-contained stories that remix content from the base game. This mode while free, isn’t available from the start. This Vampire Survivors Adventures guide will cover the adventures available right now, how to unlock the mode, and more. Poncle says the aim of this mode is to give you an excuse to replay Vampire Survivors when you’ve unlocked everything. I haven’t unlocked everything, but have gotten very close. Watch the Vampire Survivors Adventures trailer below:
How to unlock adventures in Vampire Survivors
To unlock adventures, you need to collect the Atlas Gate relic in Boss Rash at minute 7. To do this, pick a powerful character you’re comfortable with like Queen Sigma or Red Death, and survive until the seventh minute. Collect the relic from the middle of the arena. You can now either survive or quit the stage. This unlocks adventures or Adventure Mode in Vampire Survivors.
How to unlock Boss Rash mode in Vampire Survivors
If you’ve not unlocked Boss Rash yet, it is the third challenge stage. You can do this by unlocking hyper mode for all the normal stages, or using the cheat code: ‘peakgamedesign’ without quotes in the Forbidden Scrolls menu.
What adventures are available in Vampire Survivors
Right now, there are three adventures available: A Garlic Paradise, World of Light and Dark, and Legacy of the Moonspell. The first two are for all players, but the third one requires owning the DLC of the same name.
Vampire Survivors Adventure Mode achievements
Right now, there are no platform-specific achievements for adventures, but you can unlock base game achievements from within adventures and adventure mode.
Vampire Survivors Atlas Gate
Right now, there’s no achievement for the Atlas Gate, but a future patch will add some achievements including the Atlas Gate one.
When will Vampire Survivors get new adventures?
On the official FAQ page, poncle confirmed that the team is planning on new adventures alongside future free updates and paid DLCs.
