In a Few Weeks, Dead Cells is Getting a Bunch of Free DLC

By Laura Kate Dale on at

If you're a fan of fast paced 2D action, complex enemy attack patterns, and an ever-changing world layout, Dead Cells is one of the best games to have released in the past few years. Players collect weapons, dodge and weave past enemies, collect souls to purchase permanent upgrades, and try to fight their way through a branching series of boss fights, all with a "just one more go" pacing underpinning the action.

If you've already completed Dead Cells and need an excuse to come back to it, a new update landing in a couple of weeks should give you all the reason you need.

On 28th March 2019, free DLC is being added to all versions of Dead Cells. Titled "Rise of the Giants", the DLC adds a new area to the game, The Cavern, for anyone who has beat the game's final boss. The Cavern features 10 new enemy types, as well as vicious lava-filled terrain. Additionally, on hard mode or above, these new enemies may occasionally appear in earlier levels within the game.

There's also a secret hidden level being added to the game. We know very little about it, other than it will be incredibly tough.

The DLC adds 10 new weapons, too, and 10 new skills to help players have a better chance against these new challenges. Considering one of the new weapons is called the Giant Killer, and the DLC is called Rise of the Giants, no prizes for guessing what type of creature that new boss will probably be.

Dead Cells is already a great game, and more free content for it sounds like a good deal to me.
