Cat Quest II, the adorable cat-focused action RPG, received a free update today. In addition to a New Game+ mode, the update brings AI improvements when playing alone as well as a completion tracker. You can download it now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and Steam and restart your furry adventure.
The New Game+ mode throws you back into Felingard and the Lupus Empire with a higher difficulty. As with most such modes, you get to keep all of the gear, skills, and experience that you gathered during your first playthrough. The difficulty isn’t just increased slightly, though. Players can choose how difficult their second run is, adding up to 999 levels to all enemies.
If you’ve already beaten the game, there’s even more reason to revisit. The AI of your companion has been improved if you’re playing solo, along with some balance tweaks to the overall game. Of course, while the AI works better now, we still recommend taking a look at our solo players guide for Cat Quest II. In some cases, you may have to deal with battles solo while your companion does its own thing.
More exciting, though, is the completion tracker. Shown front and center on the inventory screen, you can now view your completion stats for dungeons, quests, and items as you play the game. That should make unlocking all of the golden chests a bit easier.
About Cat Quest II
Cat Quest II is a 2D open-world action RPG where you control a cat soldier. Continuing the story of the first game, the cats of Felingard and the dogs of the Lupus Empire are waging war on each other. However, instead of duking it out, Cat Quest II brings the kings of both empires together. Against their will, they set out on a journey together to reclaim their thrones. You can see some gameplay in the launch trailer below.
You can play as a cat or dog during your playthrough. Although meant to be a co-op experience, you can choose to tackle the quest solo, too. As we pointed out in our review, Cat Quest II is “charming, adorable, and delightful,” though it can sometimes feel repetitive. Regardless, there are a lot of secrets to uncover, so make sure to check out our guide and features hub page so you can get your journey started on the right foot.
If this is your first time hearing of the game, make sure to pick it up on Steam.
