The Endless Multiverse 2.0
The Endless Multiverse 2.0 completely reinvigorates DemonCrawl's current endgame. Dimensional Portals no longer require you to sacrifice items or stats to proceed. Instead, they will automatically reset your inventory and stats to starting values. The Metagate will acquire a new "Portal Mod" with each dimension. These special mods will impact the difficulty of the following dimension in interesting ways.

Other Endless Multiverse Features

  • New stranger: Guide - Exclusive to the Metagate. He will help you whitelist certain items or stats when you enter the Dimensional Portal. Unlike most strangers, you may only pay each Guide once.
  • New legendary items: Memento - Found only in Endless Multiverse Item Shops, each Memento presents a mini-quests of sorts; if you can meet its conditions, you will receive a buff at the start of the next dimension. There is a Memento based around the mechanics of each Mastery.
  • New landmark: Vault - The Vault allows you to deposit a specific item that will persist between dimensions. You can retrieve this item from the next Vault you encounter, however you must leave another item in its place.
