It’s one of the most acclaimed titles of recent years, but no matter how good Dead Cells already is, there’s always room for improvement. That’s what the Motion Twin and Evil Empire teams are hoping for with the release of the new The Queen and the Sea expansion for Dead Cells.
The latest update to hit Dead Cells, following on from the likes of The Bad Seed and Fatal Falls DLC drops, The Queen and the Sea will set players back a mere £4.19 in asking price, with anyone happy to throw down that cash getting access to a host of new ideas and features.
Bringing forth 9 new pieces of weaponry – including a throwable shark, a trident and a pirate hook – The Queen and the Seas certainly adds what players are wanting. Throw in a ton of new outfits, additional enemies to take down and a pet who is not as cute as it may seem, and you’ve got a host of things to enjoy.
But the real meat comes in the late-game content that The Queen and the Seas adds, allowing players to discover new areas and levels, working as alternatives to the usual High Peak Castle, Derelict Distillery and Throne Room biomes. These are the Infested Shipwreck, the Lighthouse and The Crown, with details of each as follows…
- Infested Shipwreck: Crawl through the claustrophobic corridors of crumbling wrecks, while seething eldritch abominations hunt you from the shadows.
- Lighthouse: Ascend this soaring tower while fending off the relentless attacks of the Servants and outrunning the hungry flames rising from below.
- The Crown: Try to get off this cursed island by lighting the beacon at the lighthouse summit. However, your past won’t let you go without a fight…
Should you have a copy of Dead Cells to hand already – and you should because it’s THAT good – then you’ll be able to pick up The Queen and the Seas from the digital store of your choosing. For us Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S players, it’s the Xbox Store which will need visiting.
Further though, if you’re looking for full bundles, you’re sorted there too. There’s the Dead Cells: DLC Bundle for £9.99 which throws all four DLC packs your way (perfect if you only have the base game), or there’s the Dead Cells: Road to the Sea Bundle for £27.49 – this includes the base game as well, letting you get in on the action you need.
