Redesigned role-playing system, new abilities and skills, rebalanced battle mechanics, stealth and non-lethal weapons, updated locations, additional side-quests, tons of new weapons and equipment, additional animations and effects and a lot more is waiting for you in the new content expansion for Encased.

Thanks to the spring patch number 2 we got amazing feedback from the players! It was as always concrete, passionate and at the same time motivating. That’s why in the third update we added long-awaited mechanics such as stealth and reworked the most important element — the role-playing system.

The purpose of the changes in the role-playing system is to expand the player's options while creating an in-game character. We want you to be able to distribute the attributes on your own and get serious combat advantages. Now the whole system works differently:
— Action Points no longer depend only on Agility, now both Luck and Agility increase them equally.
— Each branch of combat skills is now tied to two main attributes, rather than one, and has a number of additional attributes.
— Options for creating a character with the most personalized tactics were expanded. The player is free to choose his own path, rather than follow the only road left to him by a game-designer.

You waited for it, and we finally added: Stealth! Now the protagonist can go into stealth mode to avoid uncomfortable enemies or complete a quest in a new way. Stealth Mode reveals additional aspects of many abilities. It not only increases damage, but also the chance for additional action.

We know that for you, avid RPG players, the atmosphere is very important! We want the Encased world to feel realistic and alive. To get closer to this goal, we have updated many locations. Not only do they look different, now you will meet new NPCs that can give you additional quests, tell a joke or trade with the player. Your companions will also react to in-game events, other characters and generally behave in a very different way now.

Even though the third content patch is the last update for the early access of Encased, this is not the end. Right now the Dark Crystal Games team is coming to the finish line, beyond which is the full Encased release. In the third patch you will encounter new side-quests, but the main plot will remain a mystery until the release version. Now we will focus our attention on the story content and polishing of already existing mechanics. So get ready, adventurers. More Dome puzzles, wasteland adventures and battles with crazy enemies are waiting for you.
