Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair update makes changes to the Impossible Lair
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair’s Impossible Lair is undergoing some changes in an upcoming update, developer Playtonic Games has announced.
According to the developer, these changes are being made “to offer players more options for taking on the Impossible Lair while still maintaining a sense of challenge and achievement.”
Following the update, a new version of the Impossible Lair will be available called the “Not So Impossible Lair.” This new version ends each section with a checkpoint that will save the player’s “Bee Shield score” and allow them to choose where to start. While the Impossible Lair version has no Bee Shield and no checkpoints.
In addition, an 8-bit soundtrack option is being introduced that covers every 2D level in the game. This update is scheduled to go live on all platforms on April 14th.
Playtonic also announced that the 64-bit Tonic will finally be added to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the original Yooka-Laylee before the end of April. The Tonic can be activated by talking to Vendi and also contains the Yooka 64 model from Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair, which will be added to the PC and Switch versions of the Tonic.
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
