Recently, we previewed an exciting update for Elder Sign: Omens that features a host of new gameplay elements and technical enhancements, plus the option to add an engaging new campaign to your experience. Today, we’re pleased to announce that the version 1.1 update for Elder Sign: Omens is now available for your iPhone, iPad, Mac OS X, and Android device! Whether you’re an existing fan or a newcomer to the app, there’s never been a better time to take on cosmic abominations.

Visit the App Store, Mac App Store, or Android Market to get Elder Sign: Omens, then download the update through your digital device!

What does version 1.1 include?

At no cost, the version 1.1 update introduces exciting never-before-seen options, including an all-new campaign against Yig, the Father of Serpents, as well as access to new monsters, adventures, and more.

However, for players who want to add an even greater challenge, a newly available in-app purchase, “The Call of Cthulhu,” will take your investigators to the Pacific Rim. There, they’ll face off against the ultimate entity of cosmic malevolence, Cthulhu himself!

The free v1.1 update brings:

  • An exciting Yig campaign
  • Five new Yig monsters and four Yig adventures
  • An unlockable investigator (after defeating Azathoth)
  • Performance improvements and other technical fixes

The in-app purchase offers:

  • "The Call of Cthulhu," a new campaign
  • Over 30 new adventures, four new Investigators, and 12 new monsters
  • New inventory items, a new map, and new game mechanics
  • An unlockable investigator (after defeating Cthulhu)

New Yig-themed adventures like Becoming Other pit your investigators against the minions of the father of serpents. Click to enlarge.

Face the Father of Serpents

Yig, an ancient serpentine deity that seeks only to poison the world with his malice, has sent his minions slithering into the shadowed corners of the Arkham museum. Can you muster the courage to uncover his foul plot?

Along with fixes for minor technical issues and a reduced memory requirement for increased performance, the free update to version 1.1 will feature an all-new Yig campaign. This venomous foe presents a less challenging alternative to Azathoth.

Face off against Yig while mixing in five new custom Yig monsters and four new serpent-themed adventures! Version 1.1 will also include, at no cost, a new unlockable Investigator as your reward for defeating Azathoth!

Embark on a horrifying voyage

Looking for an even greater challenge? Version 1.1 brings the option to download Elder Sign: Omens’ first ever in-app purchase, “The Call of Cthulhu.” This new campaign presents an engaging and challenging two-part narrative, along with new adventures, items, Investigators, monsters, and game mechanics!

Beginning in the familiar setting of Arkham’s foremost museum, your team must search for clues surrounding an ominous pattern of break-ins that plague their troubled New England city. Something is compelling inhuman intruders to steal ancient relics from the museum’s mysterious exhibits, and only by determining their true motives (a feat abstractly represented by the collection of seven Elder Signs), can you move on to the game’s second stage. But can you learn the truth before your enemies complete their terrible objective?

Should your team survive the campaign’s first grueling chapter, their search will lead them to the South Pacific, the fabled location of the lost city of R'lyeh. From the deck of the merchant steamer Ultima Thule and armed only with an antediluvian amulet of unknown origins, you must quickly search for R’lyeh’s true location... so that you might prevent the coming of Cthulhu and the utter destruction of humanity.

Can you maintain your sanity long enough to protect mankind from these unspeakable horrors? Visit the App Store, Mac App Store, or Android Market to download Elder Sign: Omens, or update your app through your digital device!

Elder Sign is a fast-paced, cooperative dice game of supernatural intrigue for one to eight players by Richard Launius and Kevin Wilson, the designers of Arkham Horror.
