The animated trailer gives fans a look at the deadly scale of the new boss players will face off against, and offers glimpses at new items, weapons and levels coming in the free update. For the most experienced players who have beaten the game at least once, horrible horrible death awaits in the form of perilous lava pools and caverns of violent new enemies - but fans will also be treated to a new skinning system and more than 50 new character outfits to enjoy while they die repeatedly.

 

The free update includes:

  • 10 new enemy types 
  • 10 new weapons have been introduced, including the Giant Killer, the Boi Axe and the Thunder Shield, if you’re into that sort of thing.
  • Three new skills have been included in the game 
  • And for the most advanced players: Rise of the Giant holds a new hidden level including an entirely new ending to your story
  • And way, way more. The entire list of patch notes can be found here: https://dead-cells.com/patchnotes

 

Dead Cells was released on Steam Early Access in 2017 and quickly found an audience due to its unique take on the roguelike genre and polished design. The title has since its launch earned dozens of accolades around the world from international critics and has been a stunning commercial success for Motion Twin.

 

Fans will be able to go hands on with Rise of the Giant at PAX East later this month in booth 16097.
