Endless Mode Trailer:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Curitiba, Brazil – October 1st, 2015 – Update 7: Endless Mode is now available for FREE for all players, forever! Relic Hunters Zero developer Mark Venturelli has been working on Endless Mode since before the main release. The new feature is a specially challenging way to play created for the more enduring and daring hunters. It allows players to hunt for relics and shoot space ducks forever! Level after level enemies and challenges continue to spawn procedurally so the hunting never stops.
The new stackable challenges and weapon upgrade system add incremental difficulty to the loop. It's almost as if there was a whole new game inside of RHZ! There´s so much new stuff we've made a quick list for you:

We've already said this, but it's never enough to stress: Relic Hunters Zero still is and will continue to be completely free, no ads, no micro-transactions or any kind of monetization shenanigans whatsoever.
If you haven't checked it out yet, Relic Hunters Zero is a fast paced shooter about fighting evil space ducks and turtles. While you explore the world in search for buried relics you will be shooting loads of enemies in their space faces! It plays fast, feels really smooth, and even has a co-op mode, to play with your friends, like locally, on a couch, as if it's the 90's again! Keep digging and unlock new weapons and characters in order to defeat the Ducan Commander! Enjoy the glories of infinitely spawning space ducks and keep smashing their alien faces forever!
