Developer Dodge Roll Games’ brilliant bullet-hell dungeon-crawler Enter the Gungeon will finally receive its massive – and long-awaited – free Advanced Gungeons & Draguns expansion next week, on July 19th.
According to Dodge Roll, Advanced Gungeons & Draguns – which will be the game’s second major update since its launch on PC and PS4 back in 2015 – introduces hundreds of new rooms to its procedural layout pool, alongside dozens of new weapons, items, enemies, and ammo types. That’s accompanied by “hundreds of new, wild synergies”, more generous drop rates, the ability to slide over tables and coffins (!) and “lots more”.

The expansion was originally intended to release in “fall” last year, and Dodge Roll offered a few more details at the time of its announcement. “The focus of the update,” it explained, “is on community requested changes, quality of life and convenience features, hundreds of new and substantially more powerful synergies, a bunch of new guns and items, and getting revenge on the Gungeon’s most hated resident, our new boss. Of course there will also be new rooms, NPCs, secrets, and a new mini-boss.”
“If you tried Gungeon in the past and found it too hard, too stingy, or too slow,” the developer added, “this update will be the version for you. If you liked it just the way it was, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered as well.” Dodge Roll also says that it sees Advanced Gungeons & Draguns as the “complete” version of Enter the Gungeon, and that it includes “nearly everything that we had in our original and insanely over-scoped plan for the game”.
Advanced Gungeons & Draguns will be free and is expected to launch on all platforms – that’s Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC – on July 19th “pending console approvals”
