Slay the Spire icons for the brand new fourth character

[Update #2]: Slay the Spire's fourth character The Watcher has now finally been released in full, and unsurprisingly, she's pretty fun to play around with!

[Update]: Slay the Spire's fourth character The Watcher is now playable in the Steam Beta.

After spending a considerable amount of time porting Slay the Spire to various platforms, the developers have recently announced that they are once again working on brand new content. More specifically, a free DLC containing a playable fourth character!

That's not where the good news ends, however, as the new character is a lot closer than you might imagine. According to the latest Steam update, the fourth character will be heading into beta testing on September 9th!

What exactly this character will be, nobody currently knows, but judging by the icons in the developer update, I do believe it's some sort of priest/monk hybrid. Even if that ends up being absolutely correct, I'm still fully expecting the developers to mix things up and create something that's just a little bit out of the ordinary. After all, The Defect was supposed to be Slay the Spire's take on the classic mage archetype, and he ended up being quite unique indeed!

Once more information becomes available, most likely when the fourth character arrives on September 9th, I'll let you know. Until then, you can read a little bit more about Slay the Spire's future over at Steam.
