Mundfish Studio has also added new features to the prominent DLC. Our favorite talking goose has seen massive improvements with the addition of better navigation and AI. The goose in Atomic Heart will also have a better ability to dodge attacks. In case you previously found the goose to be tame in contrast to real life, he will now chomp on legs if bothered a bit. The character will also be more talkative due to the newly added lines.

The crashes ensuing because of the DLC will be greatly lowered alongside the irksome freezes that would hinder the otherwise octane-inducing gameplay. Using the Technostasis ability was also causing crashes for some players. The new glove ability allows you to manipulate time and control the surroundings in a more dynamic way. As mentioned in the patch notes, the devs have also nipped those crashes in the bud.

Additionally, Atomic Heart end credits have been updated and now contain info about the Anhiliation Instinct DLC.

Embark on a journey through the new mind-bending Mendeleev Complex to discover the truth about NORA as P-3 is pulled back into Facility 3826. Survive vicious, shape-shifting new enemies in the Mendeleev Complex and its diverse area and take them down with two new cunning weapons and a new astounding Technostasis ability for your glove,” reads the DLC description on Steam.

The DLC will let us further explore the dystopian world of Atomic Heart, featuring the Mendeleev Complex and its surrounding swamps as a completely new area to discover. A new boss has also been added to the DLC. And it is among the most exhilarating challenges you can face in the game. After the inpouring of all the positive reception so far, Mundfish’s new entry may see even more DLCs in the future.

Atomic Heart launched to critical acclaim worldwide but came with its own share of controversies. The entry had a mini cartoon series that could be watched, and one of the sequences had a few racist innuendos that rubbed people the wrong way. The devs seemingly removed the inappropriate cartoon from the game and apologized for the accidental mishap.

The title came out on February 21 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S and Series X. The game surpassed five million players in just three weeks.
