Motion Twin have announced the release date of the Fatal Falls DLC for roguelite Metroidvania Dead Cells.
As previously reported, the game tasks you to control a smoldering blob-like creature, who in turn controls the corpse of a recently beheaded prisoner. Pick from a variety of weapons, thwart deadly foes, uncover secrets, and tailor your stats appropriately each run through the non-linear and randomly generated prison.
As stated in the press release, the DLC introduces two new mid-game biomes (The Fractured Shrines and The Undying Shores), a new boss (The Scarecrow, a Malaised Royal Gardener), and seven new weapons, eight enemies, and ten new outfits.
Players will find aid in a talking flying sword, the new scythe class weapons (which orbit you and home in on enemies), Lightning Rods, Ferryman’s Lantern, Scarecrow’s Sickles, Iron Staff, Snake Fangs, Serenade and Cocoon. However, they must face off against Myopic Crows, Clumsy Swordsmen, and Compulsive Gravediggers.
