HoloCure Update – How to Update and Patch Notes

By Glen Fox |


Wondering how to perform a HoloCure update? Well, you’re in the right place. That’s exactly what this guide aims to help with. Given that HoloCure isn’t available on Steam, or another traditional marketplace, and doesn’t have a launcher, it’s difficult to know how to update it. Fortunately, we’ve dug into this for you, and have detailed the steps you can take below to keep the game up-to-date.

Not sure what HoloCure is? Well, it’s a brand new game in the burgeoning Vampire Survivors subgenre. It takes place in the hololive YouTube franchise, and sees you play as one of the hit idols. You have to battle hordes of crazed fans, levelling up your character, collecting items, and uncovering one of the myriad secrets.

We’ve covered the sensation since launch, putting together a number of guides to help you get started. We’ve got a HoloCure collabs guide, HoloCure tier list, HoloCure weapons list, and HoloCure items list.

How to Perform a HoloCure Update

Performing a HoloCure update is a little different to updating regular games, given the game’s lack of a launcher, or presence on a traditional gaming platform. However, it can still be done.

Here are the steps you need to take to update HoloCure:

  • Visit the official HoloCure site
  • Scroll down to the bottom and download the latest HoloCure zip file
  • Unzip the files into your existing HoloCure file – this is a crucial step to ensure you don’t lose your save
  • Launch the EXE to play the updated game


  • Unzip the new version anywhere on your PC
  • Open the unzipped folder
  • Copy all of the files
  • Paste them into your original HoloCure folder and replace the original files


  • Install itch.io and let it do all of the work
