Developers Motion Twin and Evil Empire (a new studio formed by ex-Motion Twin staff) have announced the next batch of DLC for Dead Cells.
The new “The Bad Seed” downloadable content is launching across Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in Q1 of 2020, for $4.99.
The new DLC adds new weapons, new biomes, new monsters, and a new boss battle. Featured above, you can view the announcement trailer for the new content.
Here’s a rundown on the new content:
“The Bad Seed” downloadable content introduces new path choices in the early game ensuring that all players, no matter their level, will be able to enjoy it. Players will discover two new biomes inhabited by their own distinctive bestiary; “The Arboretum,” a lush paradise to deceivingly adorable creatures, and “The Swamp,” where an overgrown arboreal settlement inhabited by ambushing blow gunners and spear wielders is your only escape from the gargantuan purple ticks that reign uncontested on the ground.
Triumphing over the numerous perils, built by the Dead Cells developers with as much love as sadism, will be rewarded with a conceptually unique armory, including the first double slot weapon as well as a very dedicated and loyal mushroom companion. Of course, vengeance visited upon the monsters and challenging new biomes that once slowed you down is its own reward, but a few new weapons never hurt anybody.
While offered as additional paid content, “The Bad Seed” downloadable content is not intended to mark the end of the free post-launch content updates the developers have proven to be committed to over the years. Free content, balancing, and systemic updates are planned at the same steady rhythm and of the same quality as seen in 2019. Revenue from paid content such as “The Bad Seed” will allow the team to continue to expand Dead Cells‘ base game with and for the fans for a long time to come.
It’s worth pointing out that Evil Empire is working on a new intellectual property alongside post-launch content for Dead Cells with original developer Motion Twin.
Dead Cells is now available for for Windows PC via (Steam), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
