Crimson Dragon gets multiplayer, new difficulty level in 4 GB patch

Crimson Dragon now has a multiplayer mode and an extra-hard difficulty level, courtesy of a 4 GB patch that was released this morning, Microsoft announced today on PlayXBLA.

The multiplayer offering includes competitive and three-player cooperative play, as well as an asynchronous mode in which players can go up against the dragons of offline friends. Crimson Dragon developer Grounding Inc. scaled back the game's difficulty prior to launch, but today's update includes a new level, "Insane," that ramps up the challenge.

At 4 GB, the title update is more than 58 percent the size of the full game itself, which weighs in at 6.88 GB. Crimson Dragon is the second Microsoft Studios-published Xbox One title to receive a sizable patch, with Capcom Vancouver having released a 13 GB update to Dead Rising 3 earlier this month.
