Developer IronOak Games has announced that its wonderful board-game-esque RPG rogue-like For the King is getting another free content update, this time focussing on the seas of Fahrul, and it'll arrive on PC on November 21st.

Following on from the recent "(un)cooperative" Gold Rush expansion, For the Kings' next DLC update is called Into the Deep and brings a whole heap of nautically-themed additions, including, says IronOak, "incredible sea battles, fearsome enemies, awesome boats".

Into the Deep pits players against the nefarious Fishfolk, who intend to summon the mighty Kraken God into the world. To halt this impending apocalypse, adventurers must explore the ocean and its islands, finding and destroying powerful artefacts hidden within Water Temples.

According to IronOak Games, Into the Deep will include nine new enemy types, new enemy and friendly NPC encounters, new gun-class weapons (including the Blunderbuss, Musket, and Hand Cannon), new armour, outfits, and trinkets, plus four boat variants.

Into the Deep will be free to all owners of For the King (which costs 15.49 on Steam) when it releases on November 21st. Publisher Curve Digital is also bringing the game to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Switch some time next year.
