Enter the Gungeon, the rogue like/lite shooter that’s also one of our favourite games of the year, is set to receive an upgrade in the form of the Supply Drop Update.
This news is not a major surprise as one of the devs stated on Twitter that an update was on the cards.
Then, earlier this week, the official Twitter account of developers Dodge Roll Games posted the tweet below. The character shown in the gif is not one included in the base game, so it would have to be an addition in the form of DLC or an expansion of some kind. We now know that it will be included in an update.

Below is the official release concerning the update that we’ve left unaltered because anything we’d add would subtract from it:
The Gungeon – The Gungeon masters of Dodge Roll Games and the profit enthusiasts of Devolver Digital have announced Enter the Gungeon’s Supply Drop Update, a shotgun blast of delicious Gungeon goodness right into your content hole.
The Enter the Gungeon’s Supply Drop Update will add over a hundred new rooms to the Gungeon that include new weapons, enemies, companions, bosses, and shrines for even the most seasoned Gungeoneer. Players will come across new guns like the Bullet Gun, a gun shaped like a bullet that shoots guns and those guns shoot bullets, and new companions like Ser Junkan who gains strength and power as you carry more and more literal junk with you through the Gungeon. Elite gunslingers will also be able to tackle unique pasts for both Robot and Bullet and an all-new boss – the Mine Flayer!
“Our research showed that the Enter the Gungeon community wanted three things – ever-lasting life, rock hard abs, and more content for Enter the Gungeon,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “Great news nerds, we delivered on two of the three.”
Enter the Gungeon released earlier this year to both critical acclaim and commercial success, selling over 600,000 copies in less than six months. The development team at Dodge Roll plans for another major update after the Supply Drop Update and a full-blown expansion early next year.
We can’t wait for this update and recently, after 65 hours of playtime, we unlocked one of the secret characters mentioned above – The Bullet.
