Rankless Upgrades



Knowledge

  • 180 souls - Item descriptions now reveal more detail about what they do. This includes Relics in your inventory which have more fleshed-out descriptions, and future purchases from Epimetheus too.

Gift

Map Reveal

  • 15,000 souls - Shows all* rooms in the game, including unexplored areas (greyed out).

Note: There is actually a bonus dev area that is NOT shown by this map — though it ismarked on mine in the GUIODE — so if you have the Titan's Ego upgrade and see an Epimetheus statue off to the east of the Catacombs, that's why. It isn't a bug.
