Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical is getting a surprise DLC on 27 June 2024, with rocker Orpheus set to star in a brand new story. This “feature length” chapter will include six new original songs, including tunes from internet celeb Tom Cardy, as well as Montaigne and Simon Hall of Tripod, all backed by Austin Wintory’s composition.

Broadway performer Anthony Rapp (Rent) will reprise his role as Orpheus, and will be joined by Erika Ishii as Hermes, for a more comedy-focussed, “buddy” style adventure through the world of Stray Gods.

“Orpheus’ story is arguably finished – until Hermes brings him back to the world of the living. With their help, players will guide Orpheus through the depths of mortal decision making – who to date, what to hope for, what instrument to rock out on,” says the DLC’s description.

As announced, the DLC will be coming to PC first, and will arrive on consoles at a later date.

Based on the DLC’s teaser trailer, it will also lean into a new, more rock-focussed musical style, adding gothic flavour.
