  • Dead Cells Update Adding Tons of New Content Tomorrow

    Motion Twin, the studio behind Dead Cells, announced today that there will be a massive content update for the game that is slated to drop tomorrow, November 14. This update changes the tier system, adds in two new biomes to play through, UI changes, changes to boss locations, new items, and even the addition of new enemies.

    The full list of changes can be found on the patch notes page. The highlights of the update can be found below.

    First off, the old tier system (Strength/Skills/Health) has been replaced by a new system (Brutality/Tactic/Survival).
    Brutality (red): includes all weapons (except shields)
    Tactic (purple): includes all active skills
    Survival (green): includes all shields

    Some items (weapons or skills) are Dual colors, which means they can rely on two different stats, and use the highest value. You may also encounter random Colorless items: these ones will always use your best stat.

    Here are the effects of these new three stats when you augment them:
    Brutality (red): raise all red item damage, add +18% life
    Tactic (purple): raise all purple item damage, reduce all active cooldowns
    Survival (green): raise all green item damage, add +40% life

    How you choose to level up is now more important than ever.

    Other notable features include:
    Two new biomes: the infamous Clock Tower and the mysterious Slumbering Sanctuary. Both include new enemies and loot.
    The Watcher boss is now a mid-game boss, while the new Assassin boss becomes the final encounter. Note that the current game ending still isn't definitive: Motion Twin plans to add the real game nemesis in a later update.
    All Cursed treasures now drop Colorless items. Right now, it's the only way to get this kind of item.
    10 new items, including weapons, shields and active skills!
    Four new enemy types!

    Dead Cells is still in Early Access on Steam and GOG. The normal price is $16.99 (USD) but can be yours for 25% off at $12.74 (at least GOG currently has the sale price).
