Cult of the Lamb previews its first major content update, adding Penguin and Lion followers
Video game studio Massive Monster and publisher Devolver Digital shared a blog post on Steam for Cult of the Lamb. To celebrate the new year, the blog post revealed details about the first major content update for Cult of the Lamb, as well as new follower forms. Players can earn Follower Forms of the Penguin and Lion as Twitch Drops by watching participating streamers play the title through January 5, 2023.
Follower Forms are new skins you can give to your followers who convert in your quest to spread your cult. Along with the new follower forms, the major update is expected to include patches and improvements based on feedback. The Lamb is getting new moves in the update, including new Heavy Attacks. Players press and hold the attack button to use a heavy attack that can knock back many enemies in one hit. Each weapon has a variant of the heavy attack, with the heavy attack for the axe allowing the Lamb to throw the weapon at enemies and make them return to him like a boomerang. The Heavy Attack version for the dagger summons multiple daggers from the sky that fall in a line.

The blog post also promises that new features will be coming to the game as part of the major update. The new features will add depth, difficulty, and accessibility to the game, and the update will hopefully improve the quality of life of the title. The blog also teased that rematches with old foes will feature new features, suggesting something different is going on with the Barbatos foe. The developers didn’t share when fans can expect the release of the major update, but they claim that the game will receive patches at the beginning of the new year.
The Cult of Lamb is a roguelike game that follows the story of a possessed lamb who must gain a loyal following for his new god called The One Who Waits. The game was praised for its mix of cute character designs and horrific religious imagery and has sold around 1 million copies.
