Massive Monster and Devolver Digital launched Cult of the Lamb on Aug. 11. Players take on the role of an innocent lamb who escapes the sacrificial altar thanks to a mysterious and onimous being. In exchange for salvation, the lamb must now build a following of worshippers and cleanse the world of non-believers.

Battling through the game's many enemies can sometimes be a challenge, especially if you haven't got many abilities to choose from. Luckily, there are ways to improve your chances. Here's what you need to know.

How to Unlock New Abilities in Cult of the Lamb

Most of the ways you improve both yourself and your cult is through the Temple. Performing sermons and earning enough Faith will allow you to upgrade your abilities via the Crown.

Opening up the Crown menu when stood at the altar will reveal a web of upgrades and paths to work through. Some nodes unlock new weapons to appear on your runs, others unlock new curses and abilities. There are also a few that will upgrade your base stats, setting you up for greater success each run.

Players can also obtain Tarot Cards during their runs which add additional abilities for the duration of the level, though you never know which ones you're going to be offered. You might stumble upon additonal Tarot Cards out in the world, which will be added to the pool of possible cards you could get on your runs.
