Dead Cells: The Bad Seed DLC Launches February 11th

Dead Cells

Motion Twin have announced the release date for Dead Cells DLC, The Bad Seed.

Originally announced back in December 2019, new information about the DLC has come to light, along with a gameplay trailer. The DLC will introduce two new levels, and a new boss acting as an alternative to The Concierge.

The new levels include The Arboretum, and The Swamp. The Arboretum is equivalent to The Courtyard and The Toxic Sewers stages, while The Swamp is an alternative to The Ramparts, The Ossuary, and the Ancient Sewers.

The trailer (which you can see below) also shows new enemies and new weapons.

You can find the full run-down on the DLC (via Steam) below:

Explore a relaxing Arboretum, wade through a noxious Swamp and take on a new boss in this new early game content designed to expand the Dead Cells universe and add variety to runs for people who want to support the development of the game.

So you’ll be able to play through:

  • The Arboretum: A relaxing and peaceful greenhouse inhabited by a peaceful clan of mushrooms, with an understandable desire to murder the Beheaded.
  • The Swamp: A noxious environment ruled by a band of tree dwelling mutants with pointy sticks, sneaky dart shooting frogmen and a bunch of deadly bloodsuckers.
  • The Heart of the Swamp: Domain of mama tick, if you’ve seen StarShip Troopers, you get the idea…

The two new levels and their monsters are alternatives to The Courtyard/Toxic Sewers and The Ramparts/Ossuary/Ancient Sewers, with the boss designed to be on par with The Concierge, so hopefully it’ll spice up your early game runs once you’ve played through the core game.

The Bad Seed launches February 11th for $4.99.

Dead Cells is now available for for Windows PC via (Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. In case you missed it, you can find our review for the base-game here (we highly recommend it!)
