Developer KOEI TECMO Games and Publisher EA have announced the release of WILD HEARTS’ latest game update, available now. This update introduces a new breed of Volatile Kemono—the Deathhaze Gloombeak, new special quests dubbed ‘Serial Hunts’, as well as a new Talisman Skill ‘Toxic Shock’ which the aforementioned monster drops.
Have a gander at the blog post with all the details below. The full patch notes can be found here (they’re long).
DEATHHAZE GLOOMBEAK CONTENT UPDATE – APRIL 20
Deathhaze Gloombeak, New Talisman Skill, Special Quest: Serial Hunt
There’s been so much happening in the world of WILD HEARTS™ recently. We deployed a PC crash hotfix and a Claw Blade & Bow Rebalance patch last week. Not to mention the Reddit AMA that happened in the middle of all this. So much to share and we haven’t even gotten to what’s in today’s content update!
Deathhaze Gloombeak soars into Akikure Canyon, along with a new title and a new talisman skill for those able to reach new heights as a hunter. Serial Hunts – a new kind of Special Quest – have also been added, and could very well be the most arduous challenge Azuma’s hunters have seen to date.
No need to be gloomy though, this update and everything in it is a free update to players that already own WILD HEARTS™, like always.

New Deeply Volatile Kemono – Deathhaze Gloombeak
A new breed of Volatile Kemono—Deathhaze Gloombeak—has appeared in Akikure Canyon. You must restore tranquility by expelling the beast and its grim toxins before they permeate every corner of the ravine.
For ousting the blighted fowl, hunters will receive the title Deathhaze Exorciser.
New Talisman Skill – Toxic Shock
After a successful hunt, Deathhaze Gloombeak may drop a talisman with a new skill – Toxic Shock.
Toxic Shock will increase damage to health from toxins when Kemono are in a poisoned state.
New Special Quest – Serial Hunts
On Serial Hunts, you’ll be forced to hunt a gauntlet of Kemono, each within a set period of time. While you’ll be able to quickly gather yourself in between hunts, hunters will be unable to draw from healing water wells.
Each time you successfully take down a target, your reward increases. However, if you fail at any stage of the hunt, you’ll receive no reward at all. Hunters may choose to end the hunt early to at least receive any promised rewards up to that point.
In addition to the rewards from each round, successfully taking down all targets in a single run will grant new Chat Stamps and Emotes.
Stay safe and stay sharp hunters!
