The following is a press release by Snail Games.

The World of Dark and Light Doubles in Size as Shard of Faith Expansion Launches on Steam!

LOS ANGELES, October 9, 2018 — Snail Games calls all adventurers to Dark and Light: Shard of Faith, the first expansion to the popular fantasy, survival RPG Dark and Light, available on Steam for PC. Set in The Dark Plane above Archos, a massive, brand new map area and storyline to explore, has opened up free of charge for existing Dark and Light players and new adventurers can join the crusade against the consuming darkness for a special, limited time 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. The enemy is strong and all-consuming, but with new powers of the ancient Faiths at your command, such as spells, runes, weaponry and other crafting items, you may quell the damned legions and bring the world back into balance.

“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.”
