Dead Cells is still going strong after all these years – I can scarcely believe it was in Early Access all the way back in 2017, and now in 2021 it is still dropping some seriously wicked DLC.
It’s next update is aptly titled Everyone Is Here, bringing a slew of familiar faces and weapons to the rockin’ roguelike. Now you can take a whole new battle to the King, by leveraging goodies from Hollow Knight, Blasphemous, Hyper Light Drifter, Guacamelee, Skul & Curse of the Dead Gods.
You can check out the announcement trailer for the DLC below:
Weapons, abilities and even radical outfits to get a new cosmetic groove on – it’s a plethora of intense Indie goodness.
The borrowed weapons have some seriously cool quirks, sure to really switch up your gameplay experience from run to run:
- Hyper Light Drifter: The Hyper Light Gun marks its targets while also dealing damage. The Sword deals critical damage to the marked targets, increasing with the number of gun marks on the target. Sword hits also recharge the gun’s ammo, which doesn’t recharge passively.
- Guacamelee: Use your Pollo Power to turn into a chicken for a few seconds, firing several explosive eggs around you.
- Skul: The Hero Slayer: Smash enemies with a bone club! Hitting with the second attack enables a whirlwind attack that deals critical damage.
- Hollow Knight: Wield The Pure Nail! This baby can attack both upward and downward – doing a downward attack will allow you to BOUNCE on your enemies, dealing critical damage.
- Blasphemous: Crush the Face Flask on your forehead, dealing low damage to yourself and transforming 35 percent of your missing health into recovery.
- Curse of the Dead Gods: Slash twice with a machete. The third attack uses the pistol to bump and inflict critical damage to nearby enemies. Holding the attack button charges a slow and powerful ranged attack.
In true Dead Cells fashion, these goodies are all integrated into the game world so you can reward your exploration – Lore Rooms exist within the biomes to be discovered and in turn influence your run:
And as usual, this incredible update is entirely free – further cementing just how awesome both Dead Cells and it’s developer Motion Twin truly are.
The Everyone Is Here update is available right now for PC copies of Dead Cells, with console versions expecting it “Very Soon”.
