Motion Twin and Evil Empire announce the arrival of the new Dead Cells DLC, Fatal Falls, on January 26 at a price of € 4.99 on PC and consoles. Fatal Falls is the 22nd major update to the award-winning action game Dead Cells, and only the second paid content since the game’s arrival in Early Access in 2017. Dead Cells is a multi-award winning rogue-lite action-platformer Metroidvania and critically acclaimed set that takes place in a mysterious, indomitable castle steeped in dark secrets, random items, and hordes of devious and dangerous enemies. The game is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC.
Fatal Falls DLC introduces a host of new content for fans including two new biomes, a massive new boss, and a bunch of new items and weapons. The gameplay trailer lifts the veil on the two new environments, The Shattered Temples and the Eternal Shores, as well as the new boss, the Scarecrow, which early fans may recognize is the Royal Gardener. who suffers from malaise.
The two new biomes are parallel to the Gué des Mumes, the Clock Tower and the Keeper of Time with the ambition to spice up the heart of your runs a little. In addition to these new paths, players can hope to encounter a deadly pet sword (because why not) and mildly psychotic enemies like the Nearsighted Raven, Clumsy Swordsman, Compulsive Gravedigger, and many more. Devious creatures (for a total of eight) whose Scarecrow is the epiphany (keep an eye out for exploding mushrooms when you meet him).
What would an update be without new weapons? The New Sword of Fatal Falls (were you told she could fly?) is designed to offer a real alternative to the Grand Duke and the Mushroom Companion for players who favour Brutality. Scythes, probably the most iconic weapons in existence, are also making an appearance: they are attracted to enemies and will follow you more or less on your travels. Seven new weapons are available in total: Lightning Rods, Ferryman’s Lantern, Scarecrow Sickles, Iron Staff, Serpent Fangs, Serenade and Cocoon. Each will be useful to you in its own way in the different areas of the two new biomes. And because power is nothing without style, 10 new outfits have also been added for the occasion.
