This will be a free update to PC and all three major consoles with new content inspired by Dead Cells. We have the details of those additions below, but it also came with the news that more features will be coming to Curse Of The Dead Gods down the road.
What kind of Dead Cells-themed content can players expect? A new Curse, the Curse of the Headless, will let players move faster while receiving more damage, with a visual twist emblematic of Dead Cells' main character. Three new weapons inspired by Dead Cells will be added: the Sword of Conjunctivius, the Broadsword of the Knight and the Crossbow of the Condemned. Each is fashioned after its equivalent from Dead Cells. Finally, a new Challenge Room players can find during their runs will feature Dead Cells' Cursed Chest: you'll have to win its challenge to earn rare weapons for your run, including a cursed one.
