What kind of content will be included with a DLC name like Wildermyth - Armors and Skins? That's right; this new addition to the Wildermyth base games will consist of new armors for each class, promising that there will be triple the options to don your heroes in new epic drapery. So have we something essential to an already brilliant game, or only fodder to keep players attached to the game?
Whenever popular games release cosmetic DLCs, you wonder if they're trying to scrape the bottom of the barrel to keep the game making money or even relevant. But alas, we haven't even seen what's included in the pack yet. We could see some armors and skins that change the whole dynamic of gameplay or bring a visual appearance unseen before in card games. Let's unpack Wildermyth - Armors and Skins to find out.
It's a First for Them
Anybody who dabbled in Wildermyth would have a hard time criticizing the game. It's a fantastic title that's won critical acclaim from players and critics alike. Naturally, that kind of success means developers must focus on keeping the experience relevant and retain its crown as one of the best indie RPGs on the market. So where it's hard to add to an already perfect aura of gameplay, you'll have to expand your offering with cosmetic DLC.
Wildermyth - Armors and Skins pack a whole new array of cosmetic content to make your heroes look flashy as they progress through their adventures. On the front of the armor, players unlock new types per class to add to the wardrobe. If changing your hero's look is your thing, there are over 40 new transformation skins to give your adventurers a glow-up.
So, the big question is, is Wildermyth - Armors and Skins worth it? Anybody who is still avidly playing the game could find some enjoyment from the massive addition of cosmetic value to the title. However, it should be noted that the DLC doesn't change the gameplay dynamic or expand the universe. For a first addition to the base game, you'd like a new adventure or something that builds the universe up more.
But having said that, it's clear that plenty of players will be snapping up Wildermyth - Armors and Skins to give their heroes a new appeal and, most importantly, to stay loyal to the game. The DLC is nothing groundbreaking but doesn't feel like a milking attempt.
New Costumes New Adventures
Wildermyth - Armors and Skins are doing the same thing other wildly popular titles do, just like Darkest Dungeon does with the DLC it offered. If done correctly, there's nothing wrong with that; it at least provides some value to players. Still, there's always a fine line you need to dance around to avoid burdening your game with endless unnecessary cosmetic content.
Let's hope that the next DLC set for Wildermyth contains new adventures, classes, heroes, or something that adds a new angle to gameplay. As a first expansion, we'll let them get away with only releasing cosmetic content, but this shouldn't become a regular thing.

- It doesn't change up an already perfect mechanics set
