Developers Motion Twin and Evil Empire have shared an animated launch trailer for Dead Cells latest DLC.
The new animated launch trailer shows off the new “Fatal Falls” downloadable content, which is now available for both Windows PC and consoles, for $4.99 / €4.99.
Here’s the new trailer:
Here’s a rundown on the new content:
The Fatal Falls DLC introduces a significant amount of new content for fans including two new mid-game biomes, a killer new boss and a slew of new weapons and items. The two new biomes are parallels to the ‘Stilt Village’, ‘Clock Tower’ and ‘Time Keeper’ areas and are intended as alternate paths to spice up your mid-game runs.
Along the new paths fans can expect to encounter a cute but deadly pet sword and deranged enemies like the Myopic Crow, the Clumsy Swordsman, the Compulsive Gravedigger and a lot more (eight total) culminating with the final boss, The Scarecrow.
And what’s an update without new weapons? Fatal Falls’ new maniacal sword (did we mention it flies?) is designed to bring Brutality players a real counterpart to the Great Owl and Mushroom Boi. Sickles, undoubtedly one of the more iconic weapons in existence, have also been added – they are attracted to enemies and will follow you around a bit. Seven new weapons in total have arrived: Lightning Rods, Ferryman’s Lantern, Scarecrow’s Sickles, Iron Staff, Snake Fangs, Serenade and Cocoon. Each one will help you in different areas of the two new biomes. And because we want you to feel good AND look good, a total of 10 new outfits have also been added to the update.
Fatal Falls marks the second paid DLC drop for the 2018 GOTY winning Dead Cells. The developers have kept a steady flow of free content on tap for its loyal community across all platforms for the past 30 months. The first paid DLC, The Bad Seed dropped last year for the same price of $4.99. Previous recent updates have included bringing six new mobs, massive systematic updates and the much-requested backpack, several new biomes, dozens of distinct (and mostly deranged) new enemies and a variety of badass weaponry to help you not die as much. Update 21, the Malaise Update, changed the way the late game mechanics work entirely. The Malaise Update will hit consoles in February; it is currently available on PC.
Dead Cells is available on Windows PC, Linux, Mac (all via GamersGate, GOG, and Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Android, and iOS. If you missed it, you can find our review here (we recommend it!)
