Motion Twin and Evil Empire announced that Dead Cells’ next latest free update, Barrels o’ Fun, is now available on Steam with consoles to follow later this summer. The 20th update dishes out a deadly new level harkening back to happier days as players will encounter an industrial playground of doom complete with broken bottles, barrels (some which players can interact with), pipes venting steam, and other now-defunct remnants of a once-functioning distillery.
Comes with new enemies of some huge fellas who’ll throw some pretty big explosive barrels your way and new mimics hiding among the benign barrels in the corridors. They may not be the toughest of enemies on their own, but dang if they don’t have a devastating self-destruct which can end your run fairly efficiently. They’re also pretty fast so keep on your toes.
Fret not, you are armed with all-new weaponry to tackle these new foes, and since you’re about to get some barrels thrown at you, why not throw them right back? Introducing the Barrel Launcher – a bazooka-style weapon that fires bouncing, exploding barrels. You’re welcome.
