Publisher Fellow Traveler and developer Jump Over the Age have announced that Citizen Sleeper will receive its first DLC update, titled ‘Flux‘ on July 28, 2022. Players will be able to download the DLC for free at no extra cost if they have already purchased the game.
The first episode, Flux, begins a storyline that will span across all three of the updatable DLC, with the second planned to launch in October and the third sometime in 2023. A statement from Gareth Damien Martin, the developer behind Jump Over the Age, announced on Tuesday that the DLC will bring new questlines, characters and interactions to players screens. These will expand on the storylines already established in Citizen Sleeper thus far.
For those who have not already played the game, Citizen Sleeper is a table-top RPG game in which players make decisions based on the roll of dice and the completion of certain actions. Players fight to keep their Sleeper (character) alive as it approaches “planned obsolescence” aboard an abandoned space station, Erlin’s Eye.
The new chapter, Flux, follows pressures in the Helion system which bring refugees to Erlin’s Eye. Among the refugees are one of the new characters, Eshe, who is the captain of the Climbing Briar. She is a “stubborn and driven spacer”, Fellow Traveller announced on their Discord Server. Further characters include Peake, the second member of the Climbing Briar.
Citizen Sleeper launched in May and is available to play on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. The new update launches July 28, 2022 on all platforms.
