A combination of two great roguelike games makes an interesting outcome. Focus Home Interactive and Passtech Games just announced their partnership with Motion Twin and Evil Empire to create ‘Curse of the Dead Cells’, a crossover update featuring smash-hit indie roguelikes Curse of the Dead Gods and Dead Cells.
The Curse of the Dead Cells Update comes at no additional cost to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 14.
Players will wield iconic weapons, discover a new curse, and deal with the Cursed Chest all inspired by Dead Cells in Curse of the Dead Gods!
What kind of Dead Cells-themed content can players expect? 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.
All these features have been carefully designed to take inspiration from Dead Cells while fitting in Curse of the Dead Gods’ style and gameplay.
The Curse of the Dead Cells update will be available on April 14 on all platforms. Curse of the Dead Gods is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
