Focus Home Interactive and Passtech Games are proud to present a partnership with Motion Twin and Evil Empire for “Curse of the Dead Cells”, a crossover update featuring smash-hit indie roguelikes Curse of the Dead Gods and Dead Cells. This massive update to Curse of the Dead Gods will add a new curse, three new weapons, and a new kind of Challenge Room, all inspired by Dead Cells. In addition, there will be a new two-handed weapon style, new curses, and much more.

The Curse of the Dead Cells Update comes at no additional cost to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on April 14. Official artwork and screenshots showcasing the upcoming Dead Cells-themed content are available today.

Wield iconic weapons, discover a new curse, and deal with the Cursed Chest all inspired by Dead Cells in Curse of the Dead Gods!


What kind of Dead Cells-themed content can players expect? A new Curse, the Curse of the Headless, will let players move faster while receiving more damage, with a visual twist emblematic of Dead Cells’ main character. Three new weapons inspired by Dead Cells will be added: the Sword of Conjunctivius, the Broadsword of the Knight  and the Crossbow of the Condemned. Each is fashioned after its equivalent from Dead Cells. Finally, a new Challenge Room players can find during their runs will feature Dead Cells’ Cursed Chest: you’ll have to win its challenge to earn rare weapons for your run, including a cursed one.

All these features have been carefully designed to take inspiration from Dead Cells while fitting in Curse of the Dead Gods’ style and gameplay.

Beside this Dead Cells-themed content, more features will be coming to Curse of the Dead Gods with this update, including a new two-handed weapon style and a new Curse! More information will be unveiled soon.

The Curse of the Dead Cells Update will be available on April 14 on all platforms. Curse of the Dead Gods is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. Take a look at the new screenshots today!
