While 2020 has been crappy for just about everyone, it’s actually been a fantastic year for Pascal’s Wager from Tipsworks Studio and Giant Games. After debuting as on of the showpiece titles during last year’s iPhone 11 event, Pascal’s Wager launched this past January and offered a bonafide “Souls-like” experience on mobile. We really enjoyed the game in our review, and the following month after its release the developers laid out their 2020 road map for future Pascal’s Wager content. This has included a new Casual Mode option, a New Game+ mode, the paid Into the Dark Mist DLC, an additional boss fight update for that same DLC, a release on Android, and a second paid expansion called The Tides of Oblivion back in August which you can see in the trailer below.
Well the hits keep on coming for Pascal’s Wager as today the developers have announced a new Winter 2020 update coming soon for free which will add a new Boss Challenge Mode to the game. This mode will allow you to face off against any of the bosses you’ve previously encountered in the base game in timed encounters for bragging rights on a global leaderboard. In addition, it has been revealed that Pascal’s Wager has crossed the one million units sold mark across both iOS and Android, which is downright remarkable for a premium paid title on mobile. Yes, 2020 has truly been garbage in most aspects, but it’s definitely been a banner year for Pascal’s Wager and it sounds like there will continue to be more and more new content coming in the future.
