The long-awaited update ‘Rise of the Giants’ is live for the astoundingly awesome roguelite, Dead Cells. The game will *also* be on sale on Steam for 20 percent off starting later this morning-ish. (I’m on the east coast today for PAX and Steam tends to update mid-morning on the west coast.)
Rise of the Giant is aimed for both new and experienced players, but hosts a wealth of end-game content for the most experienced players who have beaten the game at least once – they can expect to face off against horrible, horrible death as it awaits in the form of perilous lava pools and caverns of violent new enemies, including a new boss and a hidden level.
Fans will also be treated to a new skinning system and more than 50 new character outfits to enjoy while they die repeatedly. The free update includes:
- 10 new enemy types
- 10 new weapons have been introduced, including the Giant Killer, the Boi Axe and the Thunder Shield, if you’re into that sort of thing.
- Three new skills have been included in the game
- And for the most advanced players: Rise of the Giant holds a new hidden level including an entirely new ending to your story
- And way, way more. The entire list of patch notes can be found here: https://dead-cells.com/patchnotes
