Update: Motion Twin has confirmed that the next Dead Cells DLC will arrive on January 6th, 2022.
The game's next paid DLC, called 'The Queen & The Sea', is set to arrive on Switch and other platforms early next year. Motion Twin and Evil Empire have shared a teaser trailer to get the hype rolling, which you can check out for yourself up above.
Today’s new teaser trailer reveals a sneak peek of Dead Cells: The Queen & The Sea, including two new biomes with a twist: one won't be the standard-issue Dead Cells level that you’re used to... and if you make it through this new kind of challenge, there will be a totally new epic ending to the game waiting for you unless you can't defeat the all-new alternative final boss: the Queen.
To combat the new challenges presented in the new biomes, players can expect a lot more goodies in the next update and more details will be revealed soon.
The Queen & The Sea will offer an ending to the route started in the two previous DLCs, The Bad Seed and Fatal Falls. It'll be priced at $4.99 and is said to be "the most generous content update yet" for the game.
The announcement coincides with the news that Dead Cells has now shifted a mighty six million copies worldwide. If you haven't checked it out yet, feel free to read our review to learn all about it.
