Dead Cells DLC Gets Hilarious New Trailer
Rise of the Giant is available, for free, right now.
French indie studio Motion Twin is celebrating the release of Dead Cells' new free DLC in a hilarious new trailer. Promoting the game's Rise of the Giant DLC, we see the protagonist effortlessly incinerated by the end of the one-minute trailer.
The trailer starts with the character walking into a cave before tumbling Emperor's New Groove-style into a pit overrun with monsters who seamlessly take all of the protagonist's weapons. As he flees, he climbs up the bones of a giant, who reanimates itself and cheekily burns our protagonist to a crisp with eye lasers. Seems the giant doesn't mess around. You can check out the trailer above.

In marking the Rise of Giant DLC's release, Motion Twin has announced that the critically-acclaimed indie title sold more than two million copies. The DLC is available everywhere (Nintendo Switch, PC, and PS4) except Xbox One because, as the team has discovered, there was "a last minute bug in the Certification process." Xbox players will see the update a bit later, Motion Twin explained.
Motion Twin also announced earlier this month that Dead Cells will make the jump from consoles and PC to mobile devices, with iOS releasing first and Android following shortly thereafter. There's no exact release date as of yet, but the title is expected to drop "soon."
In our Dead Cells review, we said that "Dead Cells is a phenomenal effort to blend together some very disparate genres into a tight, cohesive whole. It's one of the better examples of how to remix ideas without losing their individual strengths."
