Dark and Light’s World Size Doubles with ‘Shard of Faith’ Expansion

The first expansion for Dark and Light, the fantasy survival RPG from Snail Games is available today on Steam. Set in The Dark Plane above Archos, a massive new map awaits adventurers. This expansion is free of charge for existing Dark and Light owners, and newcomers can join the fight for a special limited time sale price of 14.99. As an expedition force marches towards Ganareth’s Shard, players are invited to take up arms against the darkness and save Gaia and her satellite from the encroaching corruption and abyss. An incredibly powerful foe awaits, and it’s up to you to quell the legions of the damned and bring balance back to the world.

“Being in Steam Early Access has always been about realizing the full vision for Dark and Light’s rich, fantasy world through trying different ways to optimize the core experience and introduction of magical and challenging new content,” said Ian Shen, Executive Producer, Snail Games. “Shard of Faith, is a definitive chapter in our game, and development story, as it expands the lore and it brings us a big step closer to Dark and Light being ready for full release with improvements that will roll out ultimately across the full play experience. We appreciate all the players who are on this journey with us and we’re unlocking this content free of charge as a big thank you for their ongoing investment and belief in the game.”
