Third paid DLC for 2018 GOTY Dead Cells presents most complete version of Dead Cells yet - new animated trailer released & big savings for fans with new discounts
Motion Twin and Evil Empire announced that Dead Cells: The Queen & The Sea DLC is now live and deadly across all platforms today with a gorgeously animated new trailer that sets the stage for the biggest DLC yet. The Queen & The Sea brings an epic conclusion to the narrative introduced in the first two DLCs while presenting formidable new challenges with two new biomes, new enemies and one badass new boss.
Dead Cells sees a host of discounts this week for fans and newcomers to the game:
A whopping deal for newcomers has the game + all three DLCs priced at $21.49 for two weeks from launch
The Dead Cells base game is marked 50 percent off
A DLC bundle is priced at $9.99 for two weeks from launch
The Queen and the Sea DLC finishes the path that started with The Bad Seed and Fatal Falls, in which after dying all over again trying to save the island from the Malaise, the Beheaded is now seeking for a way out of the island - a way out which he seems to have found in the last DLC, but its heavily guarded. The Queen & The Sea DLC takes players through two brand new Biomes: The Infested Shipwreck and The Lighthouse.
The run is parallel to the High Peak Castle and Throne Room levels, introducing players to a variety of new challenges. The first Biome, The Infested Shipwreck, winds you through a rotten shipwreck where you will be hunted by unforgiving eldritch horrors lurking (like they do) in the spooky and haunted old vessel. The second Biome, The Lighthouse, showcases a brand new challenge of vertical exploration not yet seen in Dead Cells. Players will find themselves in a soaring tower in which players will scramble upward as fast as they can to outrun rising flames while simultaneously fending off highly skilled warriors who want nothing more than to end your run.
And because we can’t introduce new Biomes without also introducing a powerful new Boss waiting for you, please meet The Queen, an all-new and unexpectedly elegant character unlike any other boss seen before in the game. The Queen adapts by changing her tactics depending on the players’ combat strategy. Parrying your attacks, sending your projectiles back at you, slicing your own grenades in two and killing your beloved pets are just some of the challenges players will face, and we haven’t even gotten to the part where she slices the whole screen into pieces. Or the entirely new ending o.O
To combat the new enemies and challenges you’ll encounter, The Queen & The Sea introduces a new evolving pet to add to your arsenal and nine deadly new weapons. Your new pet, the Leghugger, is an evolving, summonable creature who feeds by attacking your enemies until it slowly transforms into its stronger adult state which is … well, kind of awesome, we think. Mostly terrifying. But also awesome. Among the new weapons in the DLC are a new Hand Hook that throws enemies into walls, The Abyssal Trident, which is a hidden treasure in the depth of the shipwreck attainable by a secret side quest, and The Queen’s Rapier: a powerful weapon that slices through reality. Plus, tons of new outfits and secrets to unlock. And yes, you can now throw a living shark at mobs in Dead Cells.
Winner and nominee for dozens of Game of the Year 2018 awards with six million units sold, Dead Cells is a critically-acclaimed roguelike metroidvania action platformer set within an unpredictable castle packed with dark secrets, game changing items and hordes of deadly beasts. Players face tough risk-reward decisions, building their loadout from an incredibly diverse arsenal of weapons and abilities in the hopes of dodging the castle’s omnipresent threat of permadeath. A steady series of post-launch updates addressing fan feedback has evolved Dead Cells, keeping its action-centric adventure as surprising as it is rewarding.
