Dead Cells

Dead Cells’ free Rise of the Giant DLC introduces a million new ways to die

Motion Twin is prepping to launch the masochism sim’s first expansion, featuring new levels, new enemies, new bosses, new weapons, new skills, and new opportunities to fuck everything up because I had to open that cursed treasure chest because this time it’s going to be different, I know it, even though it’s not actually going to be different because I’m the worst. I can’t wait, omg.

Already available on PC through an opt-in beta, Rise of the Giant is a mega-update for Dead Cells with a lot of new prospects for existential despair, according to this very extensive list. Although a public release date isn’t confirmed for the moment, the DLC will be free for everybody who owns the game on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. In the meantime, though, the team reveals some of the new content in this Red Bull promo – starting at about 06:45. Spoilers, obviously, but the video is also an intriguing exposition of the game’s development, from one of a thousand Steam Early Access indie wannabes to an instant cult-classic.
