Two of the highest-rated roguelikes are combining forces to bring you a crossover of death. Focus Home Interactive and Passtech Games have collaborated with the creators of Dead Cells, Motion Twin and Evil Empire, for Curse of the Dead Cells, the next DLC coming to Curse of the Dead Gods.
The DLC will add a new curse, three new weapons, and a new type of Challenge Room inspired by Dead Cells. The massive update will also introduce a new two-handed weapon style, new curses, and a whole lot more.
The Curse of the Dead Cells DLC is going to be a free update for Curse of the Dead Gods owners. And you won’t need to wait long to dive into the new devilish challenges. Curse of the Dead Cells will be available for PC on April 14.
Curse of the Dead Cells features
The Dead Cells-inspired curse is called Curse of the Headless. It lets you move faster, but you will receive more damage. The curse also makes the player’s head look like the main character from Dead Cells. You can see what it looks like in the feature image above.
The Sword of Conjunctivitius, the Broadsword of the Knight, and the Crossbow of the Condemned are the three weapons drawn from the Dead Cells arsenal. Each one resembles and feels similar to its counterpart in the 2D action-platformer.
As for the new Challenge Room, it will house a Cursed Chest. Dead Cells players should be familiar with this treasure container. If you can pass the challenge, you’ll earn rare weapons, including a cursed one, for your run.
A large portion of the content in the Curse of the Dead Gods update has been taken from Dead Cells. However, Focus Home and Passtech assure fans that the DLC has been carefully designed to suit the style and feel of Curse of the Dead Gods.
