Unto The End – Ver. ??? (Passive Run Update)

  • Release date:March 30th 2021 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:


  • You can now make it home without killing a single opponent. You will need to run, steal, trade, use items, interact with the environment, help those in need, and leave some innocents to fend for themselves. 


  • Combat Speed > Assist now has 3 settings: 100%, 75%, 50%
  • You no longer take extra damage based on vulnerability. However, all opponents still do. 
    • Previously the father took extra damage when facing away, blocking-opposite, attacking, jumping, dodging, faking, ducking or off-balance. This often led to getting “one shot”.
  • You now have invincibility frames (iframes) when rolling around AND away from an attack. 
    • Previously you only had iframes when rolling around an attack.
  • When hit after biting on a fake, Krilt will be knocked off their feet, allowing you to follow up with an attack. 
    • Subsequently, landing a hit after a fake again does +1 damage.
    • Also includes general improvements to faking AI, react animations and general logic.
  • Smoothed out the difficulty ramp to make it more gradual, the first 4 required encounters are now easier.
  • AI tuned for opponent blocking and dodging.
  • Poise adjusted on opponents in some fights.
  • Wind up times for attacks adjusted on some opponents.
  • Once Woad have learned your shoulder attack, they will sometimes duck under it, causing you to fall over them.
  • The one unblockable attack is now blockable and it’s damage is reduced slightly.
  • Added 7 more frames to the shoulder check attack.
  • Tuned some opponent hit boxes.
  • Camera zooms in a bit more during 1v1 fights.


  • Herbs now heal a small amount of health, and STOP bleeding, rather than just slowing it. If you eat too many herbs you still puke. 


  • Arabic language issues corrected.
  • Reload crossfade after death is now twice as fast.
  • Several rooms in the opening area are brighter.
  • It’s now easier to navigate dark areas if you’ve lost your torch. 
    • The brightness and duration of the “light flash” (that appears when hitting rocky ground or a rock wall with your sword) has been increased by 50%.
  • Bleed to death duration doubled.
  • Foreground adjusted in various rooms with fights.
  • Chromatic Aberration removed.
  • Added 3 spear pickup locations, to teach spear usage before later fights.
  • Attacking the end wall automatically causes you to shoulder check it, even if you input a low or high attack.


  • Hitting the Trolls after they are dead no longer causes them to remain standing. 
  • Attack pattern loop for “cheesing” the last fight has been removed.
  • Floating spear, which sometimes appeared in the last fight, has been corrected.
  • Fixed a few issues with combat speed not turning off after a fight.
  • Fixed a few incremental scene loading issues caused by moving up and down on a ladder in between loading zones.
  • Fixed a few save issues which in rare cases would cause you to respawn without a torch or dagger.
  • Attacking the first Troll while he runs away no longer has him freeze.
  • Throwing a dagger at the Krilt Shaman while far away now correctly causes him to engage.
  • Walking to the wall, past the Woad that offers you the Old Key, no longer breaks the offering encounter. You can now correctly grab the key after it’s offered.
  • Eating a 3rd herb, which causes puking, no longer slows bleeding.
  • Fixed an issue where an early lift would crash down and then on reload reappear upon dropping down the hole it fell through.
  • Various other bug fixes.
  • Additional notes: none.
