The excellent, yet merciless roguelike, Curse of the Dead Gods has undoubtedly been holding your attention since its launch in February. Now though, there’s new free content inspired by Dead Cells that’s available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC. Are you ready to wield iconic weapons, discover a new curse, and deal with the Cursed Chest in the Curse of the Dead Cells update?
The folks over at Focus Home Interactive and Passtech Games have partnered with Dead Cells developers Motion Twin for a ‘Curse of the Dead Cells’ crossover update. This sees two smashing roguelikes colliding to provide Curse of the Dead Gods players with a decent amount of fresh Dead Cells themed content; all of which has been designed carefully to fit the style and gameplay you’ll already be familiar with.
You can expect to find a new Curse, the Curse of the Headless, which will enable faster movement while receiving more damage and bears a visual twist emblematic of Dead Cells’ main character. In regards to the new weapons, there’s the Sword of Conjunctivius, the Broadsword of the Knight, and the Crossbow of the Condemned. And finally, prepare for a new Challenge Room that features the Dead Cells’ Cursed Chest – you’ll need to win its challenge if you’re going to earn rare weapons during a run.
In addition to the content outlined above, the update also introduces a new two-handed weapon style and another new Curse. Be sure to check Curse of the Dead Cells out by firing up Curse of the Dead Gods and download the update at no extra cost. If you haven’t given Curse of the Dead Gods itself a go yet, then feel free to gain insight from our full review. Who knows, maybe it’ll convince you to pick it up over on the Xbox Store straight after reading it!
