Dead Cells The Bad Seed DLC Gets Release Date And New Trailer

New DLC comes to Dead Cells on February 11.


Developer Motion Twin has announced that new DLC is coming to its rogue-lite Metroidvania game, Dead Cells. Titled The Bad Seed, Dead Cells players will be able to pick it up for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on February 11 for $5 USD.

The Bad Seed adds two new territories to explore, The Swamp and The Arboretum. Both are alternatives to the Courtyard/Toxic Sewers and The Ramparts/Ossuary/Ancient Sewers in the original game, with the new boss designed to be on par with The Concierge. This is intended to spice up early game runs for those who have played through the core game already. The DLC also adds new weapons (including a massive scythe), enemies, and artefacts. The 1.6 update will also be arriving on consoles at the same time.

Daniel Starkey praised Dead Cells in GameSpot's review, giving it 9/10 and saying, "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".
