When we brought Last Epoch to Kickstarter back in 2018, the Soul Cage was perhaps the single most well-received creature we showed off. Its concept art, found almost half way down our campaign page, was frequently the subject of conversations. This skeletal brute carrying a soul-filled prison has remained one of the most iconic enemies in the entire game, and we are excited to now be designing two related creatures to include in a future content patch.
The two-legged Soul Warden takes the ‘Soul Cage’ design language in a new direction; a smaller, upright creature bearing its own cage, this agent of the Immortal Empire has its path illuminated by faint lights. They are often encountered in the presence of Soul Carriers.
The Soul Carrier - referred to as a ‘Soul Cage’ on the above Design Sheet - serve a similar purpose to Soul Cages for the Immortal Empire, and will be the rarer of the two enemies.
- Soul Carrier
- Soul Warden
Got any ideas for new enemies in the ‘soul cage’ family? We’d love to hear 'em!
