January - Boss Extreme Mode
Take on Seren and Black Mage on the newest difficulty mode, Extreme! These already-powerful bosses will have more HP to burn through and greater power in their attacks, but that's not all.

We hope you’re excited by this high-level view of the content and events arriving to GMS between January - March 2023. As always, our goal with these roadmaps is to provide information that players may be curious about and assist players with advanced preparation. Please keep in mind that there is more content on the way in addition to those listed above, so we advise players to refer to the Update Preview post and Patch Notes post for the finalized details for every game update. If plans change due to unforeseen circumstances, we will have a mid-update post to inform players of the changes to the proposed timeline. Have a happy holidays and we’ll see you in the new year with the next roadmap!
