Get geared up and ready for battle. GungHo Online Entertainment has announced that Volta-X’s first free major content update is available now. Joining the new additional weapons, modes, and story missions will be an exciting collaboration with Playtonic’s dynamic chameleon and bat duo Yooka and Laylee from their titularly titled platformer Yooka-Laylee. Have a gander at all of the details thanks to a press release from GungHo:

 

Yooka will turn a new page on this tail — errr tale — by joining the Volta Crew in an original story mission, complete with his own unique abilities. “Slurp State” allows Yooka to take on any environmental effects in a room and imbue his next attacks with that effect. More details on the collaboration are coming soon.

As for the new update dropping today, the Headquarters hub is receiving an Edit Mode, which will allow players to move parts of their Base around. Improvements have also been made to Crew Assignments and selection. Players will receive new battle Emotes and a Volta taunt, and can now access multiple save slots if they want to battle their way through the game’s story again.

Four new weapons are being thrown into the mix to change up the game:

  • Light Punch delivers a low-damage, fast-cooldown attack that gives players the opportunity to strike over and over again. It can’t target flying objects, but it can overwhelm an opponent with a furious flurry of jabs.
  • Ballista does less damage, but this ancient, long-ranged weapon has an extremely short cooldown.
  • Shotgun sprays opponents with multiple projectiles at once, doing either high damage to one Volta part in close range or less damage to multiple parts from a distance.
  • Chainsaw inflicts damage upon making contact with an opponent’s part and damages the part three more times as it makes a deeper cut.

 

 

In celebration of the latest update, Volta-X will also be on sale for 50% off on the Nintendo eShop and Steam from Thursday, October 29th to Monday, November 2nd. If you are interested in Volta-X, grab the title now for $9.99 while there is still time!
