The Lovecraft-inspired game called ‘The Last Case of Benedict Fox,’ which is like a mix of Metroid and Castlevania games, got a big update. The developer Plot Twist and the publisher Rogue Games did this update.
Even though this update doesn’t give Xbox Game Pass players new content to play with in the game, it changes a lot of things to make the game more interesting.
The Last Case of Benedict Fox first showed up at the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase in June last year. Later, they showed a video that gave us a little look at the game.
It showed things like the game’s map, how you can make your character better, the exciting action parts, and some of the story. In this game, you get to be a detective named Benedict Fox, and you have to deal with scary stuff from space and solve mysteries in a spooky house.
Earlier this year, fans got really excited when they found out when the new game called “The Last Case of Benedict Fox” was coming out. They even got to see a long, 16-minute trailer about it.
The game was released on April 27, 2023, and most people liked it, but some had complaints about how slow the controls were. Now, the game has been updated to fix those problems.
Players can do things like change the buttons on their controllers and set up the controls the way they like. The camera in the game is easier to use, and the controls respond better.
They also made the fighting and animation in the game better, and it’s easier to hit and aim at things. This makes the game more fun to play because everything happens faster.
They made the enemies in the game match how fast the player can move now. If you want the game to be easier, there’s a mode where they put markers on your map to help you. They also made the menu and map in the game better, so you can keep track of your progress more easily.
They replaced a puzzle in the game with a piano to make it easier to see and use. And they fixed a bunch of problems in the game, like making sure it doesn’t crash and making the sounds better. All of these changes might make this game one of the best indie games you can play on Xbox Game Pass.
The developers who made “The Last Case of Benedict Fox” have worked really hard to make it better. They got ideas from the stories of H.P. Lovecraft to make the game more interesting. They want to make sure the game is very good and feels real when you play it.
They have been listening to what players say about the game and fixing any problems quickly. This shows that they really care about making sure players can have a great time in the spooky world of the game, with all its scary things from space. They want to make the game even more fun and exciting to play.
