We are officially on Dead Cells' 23rd update, which is incredible, but what's more incredible is that they're still adding actual (free!!) content to the game ahead of its fourth birthday on the 10th May.
The latest update is named "Whack-A-Mole", presumably because it involves getting a melanoma screening. What's that? It doesn't? Well, you should get one anyway! Prevention is the best cure!
Three new weapons have been added to the game: The Oven Axe, The Toothpick, and The Tombstone. All three are Big, but the latter is an actual tombstone that "kills your enemies dead" and leaves your mark on their graves.
There are also three new mutations, all of which were suggested by community members: No Mercy, which insta-kills enemies under 15% health; Point Blank, which scales up damage done at close range with ranged weapons; and Barbed Tips, which deals extra damage to foes with multiple arrows in them.
Other changes include a new diet called Omnivorous, and a new difficulty curve.
For all the patch notes, balance changes, fixes, and more, check out the Dead Cells blog! Mmm, patch notes.
Enjoy your Dead Cells-filled weekends, folks!
I've put around 320 hours into Dead Cells, but I'm afraid I've hit my limit. I'll download the update and poke around in it... but I got Hades on sale last week, and I've gotta go put 320 hours into that now.
I'm just sad I never made it to 3BC
We all know the character Is all head....
@Desrever I'm in the exact same boat (although with a lot less time logged). I love Dead Cells, but I really want to start exploring Hades. I'll definitely go back to DC sooner or later, but I need to give it a bit of a break.
Even so, just reading about this update makes me want to fire it up right now.
250 hours in, and I am hopelessly stuck on 4BC. I think that I have given up. 😢
@Desrever I'm normally good at rouge likes, but I just suck at dead cells, think you can give a guy like me a guide?
@Snatcher Honestly, best overall advice I can think of is that there's a rune you can find from beating an elite in the Ramparts area that unlocks 'Custom Mode'.
You can select which weapons from each category show up in your runs. As long as you have at least 20 items selected, you can progress in the game and unlock everything as normal, and only focus on getting stronger versions of your favorite weapons as you go through.
@Desrever Hmm Ok thanks I might start the game up again.
Holy crap. I didn’t even try beating 2. 😭
Custom mode is/was a ruin? It just showed up for me on an update.
I love Dead cells, just found Hades ok
Thank you to the devs for the devs ... should the AAA studios do the same
