Here’s How to Get Started Playing The Tides of the Foscari DLC
Make sure you have the DLC installed before you boot up the game. Once you’ve got the game loaded up, simply navigate to the play button and choose your character. Once your character is sorted, scroll through the maps to the bottom to find the new Lake Foscari special map. This is the DLC map that you’ll be playing on to unlock all of the new goodies outlined below.
How to Unlock The New Characters and Weapons in Tides of the Foscari
Each of the characters introduced in the Tides of the Foscari DLC for Vampire Survivors has a requirement that will need to be fulfilled before you can unlock and start using them.
You’ll want to begin by finding the first new character, Eleanor, who’s trapped inside a coffin north west of your starting location in the Lakes of Foscari. First, make your way north. When you hit a river, look for a way to get across and that should lead you right to the coffin location to obtain Eleanor.
Here’s how to obtain the rest:
Defeat a total of 6000 rotting ghouls across your runs
Unite SpellString, SpellStream, and SpellStrike
Using Eleanor, break the Seal of the Banished
Defeat 100,000 enemies in total during a single run using Genevieve Gruyère
Break the Seal of the Abyss as Maruto Cuts
Defeat a total of 6,000 Sammies across your runs
Evolve the Eskizzibur
Lets not forget the new weapons! There are 8 new weapons to unlock and use to shred the hell out of some monsters. Here’s how you unlock those:
Survive 15 minutes with Eleanor Uziron
Get SpellString to level 6
Get SpellStream to level 6
