The first paid expansion for Black Salt Games’ Dredge is now available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch. In The Pale Reach, available at any time in a playthrough, players can venture to a new biome with icebergs and freezing waters. Of course, various horrors lurk under the surface. Check out the launch trailer below.
The story involves investigating the previous crew that ventured into the biome. You’ll meet some familiar characters (like the Photographer) and unlock four new equipment pieces, an icebreaker-style boat and ice blocks for preserving catches. There are also 11 fish and crab species, a menacing Narwhal to flee from and eight Achievements to earn.
The Pale Reach is estimated to add one to three hours of new content for $5.99. Dredge has another paid DLC, The Iron Rig, launching in 2024, so stay tuned for more details. The cosmic horror fishing game has sold over one million copies since launching in March and garnered critical acclaim. Check out our review here.
