Dead Cells: The Queen and the Sea DLC Now Available

The Queen and the Sea DLC

Motion Twin have released Dead Cells: The Queen and the Sea DLC, the latest expansion for their popular roguelite Metroidvania.

The Queen and the Sea DLC adds two new biomes to spice up Dead Cells‘ endgame content: Infested Shipwreck and Lighthouse. There’s also a new boss fight that leads to a new ending, new enemies, and 9 new nautical-themed weapons. You can find the animated launch trailer for the DLC below.

Dead Cells: The Queen and the Sea is available for $4.99.

You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:

Battle your way through a rotten shipwreck, scale a burning lighthouse and confront your deadliest foe yet. If you manage to make it through all that, maybe you’ll finally get off this god-forsaken island…

This late-game content gives you an alternative to the High Peak Castle, Derelict Distillery and Throne Room biomes.

Infested Shipwreck: Fight through the claustrophobic hallways of a sunken vessel, while multi-legged eldritch abominations hunt you from the shadows.

Lighthouse: Ascend this soaring tower while fending off the relentless attacks of the Queen’s Guardians and outrunning the hungry flames rising from below.

The Crown: Try to get off this cursed island by lighting the beacon at the lighthouse summit. However, your past won’t let you go without a fight…

This DLC also gives you the usual extras:
– 9 new weapons, including a throwable shark, a trident and a pirate hook hand (eyepatch not included)
– a not-so-cute pet
– loads of outfits
– new enemies to bash

Dead Cells is available on Windows PC, Linux, Mac (via GOG and Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Android, and iOS. If you missed it, you can find our review here (we recommend it!)
