Motion Twin reveals plans to support Dead Cells with new content into 2023.
Dead Cells developer Motion Twin has released a new content roadmap for its hit rogue-lite action game. The announcement comes in response to some fans believing the game was reaching end-of-life status. Not so, says the developer in a Steam update:
“We’re taking a little breather from constant alpha/beta/update announcements to kill off the belief that, with the latest DLC ‘The Queen and the Sea’, we are at or near the end of Dead Cells’ lifetime. We can see how people ended up thinking this, but reports of our death have been greatly exaggerated…”
This summer will see the addition of new weapon and item tweaks, the long-awaited panchaku, and a new flame head outfit based on the game’s animated trailers.
Towards the end of the year, Dead Cells will get a new Boss Rush area, in which you can battle every boss you have met in the game.
Motion Twin teases another ‘under wraps’ update before the year is out and promises that 2023 will be the game’s biggest since launch.
Dead Cells was released in 2018 and, to our minds, was pretty much fully formed. The game has received numerous content updates since its launch and an impressive level of support that shows no signs of stopping. The Breaking Barriers update released last month added a host of accessibility options.
