What you need to know

  • Moonlighter is a Zelda-like dungeon crawler and shop simulator.
  • It got a new expansion called "Between Dimensions" on PC a while ago.
  • The expansion is coming to Xbox One soon.
  • You can purchase Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on Best Buy.

Moonlighter is a popular Zelda-like action game that blends dungeon crawling with running a shop. You have to go to various rooms, collect artifacts, put them up for sale at your store, and turn a profit. While most of the time you'll be selling what is essentially junk, sometimes you come across a truly priceless item that grants you a lot of cash.

Moonlighter has received a number of updates over the past year, but it's about to get a proper expansion on consoles. The expansion, called Between Dimensions, expands the main experience by letting you descend into an all-new interdimensional dungeon while filling current dungeons with new beasts. There are new weapons, armors, shop items, and rings, too.

Some of the major new features are listed below. A few updates like the terrorizing bird will be available to all owners, regardless of the fact that they own the expansion.

  • Over a dozen new enemies and mini-bosses.
  • Full set of weapons with a new short sword, a large sword, bow, gloves, and spear.
  • A new set of armor with a helmet, chest piece, and boots.
  • Trick weapons.
  • New rings.
  • Thieves will invade your shop.
  • A new client who's an indecisive customer.
  • A bothersome bird terrorizing your customers.

Moonlighter is part of Xbox Game Pass. The Between Dimensions expansion is expected to launch on May 29, the second anniversary of the game.
