Team17 and Playtonic Games have today launched a brand new, free content update to the critically acclaimed Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair.
The new update features:
- The Impossible Lair
No ‘Bee Shield’, no checkpoints. The “Golden Try” tonic can now be earned through this version of the Lair, without the need to restart the save.
- The Not So Impossible Lair
Each section of the Lair now ends with a checkpoint. Checkpoints save your best “bee shield” score. You can select which checkpoint you start from, and your highest bee shield score will always be saved. E.g., you previously cleared a section with 10 bees remaining. You select the checkpoint and clear it with 12 bees remaining. Your bee progress stays saved, so you have more bees for later sections.
- 8-bit soundtrack
Players can now choose to hear the 2D level music in 8-bit chiptune, thanks to the work of Tatertottunes. This option can be found in the menu.
About Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is a brand-new 2.5D platformer from some of the key creative talent behind ‘Donkey Kong Country’. With their arch-nemesis Capital B up to no good, the buddy duo needs to spring into action once again to save the day. To thwart his evil plan of using a “Hivemind” device to enslave an entire kingdom of bees, our heroes need to take the fight to Capital B’s “Impossible” Lair. Things look tough, but with the help of Queen Phoebee and her Royal Beetallion , Yooka and Laylee might just have a chance!
