Curse of the Dead Gods arrived on Nintendo Switch eShop earlier this year, and it's a pretty good roguelite that's certainly worth considering. It also seems that the combined efforts of developer Passtech Games and publisher Focus Home Interactive will keep the game rolling for a while yet, as a free DLC tie-in with Dead Cells has been announced.
Dead Cells, of course, has been a massive hit and has delivered a mix of free and paid updates and DLC over the past few years. In terms of the tie-in for Curse of the Dead Gods, the 'Curse of the Dead Cells' update will arrive for free on 14th April. There'll be a new curse and two-handed weapon style, and the press release says the following about specific Dead Cells-themed content.
A new Curse, the Curse of the Headless, will let players move faster while receiving more damage, with a visual twist emblematic of Dead Cells’ main character. Three new weapons inspired by Dead Cells will be added: the Sword of Conjunctivius, the Broadsword of the Knight and the Crossbow of the Condemned. Each is fashioned after its equivalent from Dead Cells. Finally, a new Challenge Room players can find during their runs will feature Dead Cells’ Cursed Chest: you’ll have to win its challenge to earn rare weapons for your run, including a cursed one.
Are you a fan of Curse of the Dead Gods, or are you interested in picking it up in the future?
Never heard of this game before. Would anybody say if it's worth it?
Put Dead cells and hades together and what you got? I amazing crossover, this makes me almost want to get the game.
@dont_simp_for_them one of the best recent roguelikes. youll love it if you enjoy roguelikes, and probably meh if you dont.
@pixelpatch Alright, I'll look into it. Thank you!
@dont_simp_for_them It has some similarities to Hades but it's a bit slower and more deliberate in how you attack & move, and parrying is a MUST if you want to advance in this game. As was referenced up above, if you like roguelikes, you'll probably dig the game. If not, I'd say avoid this, it's a roguelike for roguelike enthusiasts.
It seems like Dead Cells can get into almost any game. Which isn’t a complaint. I don’t usually like rougelikes, but I love dead cells. Keep the crossovers coming.
I just want a hades dead cells crossover
Yes, it’s worth it. I’m a big fan of Dead Cells and this is similar yet different enough to be its own thing. It’s one of the better roguelites I’ve played.
Oooh neat. I still have this game on my wishlist, and Dead Cells' crossover is sure to sweeten up the deal.
I'm likely waiting for a sale though, I'm too addicted to Monster Hunter Rise right now.
@dont_simp_for_them top notch rogue lite, amazing atmosphere and action
All this and my backlog still growing.
