The Fatal Falls DLC will introduce a lot of new content for fans like the two new mid-game biomes, a new boss, and a lot of new weapons and items. The trailer showcases these new biomes called The Fractured Shrines and The Undying Shores with the new boss called The Scarecrow. Fans may recognize this as the Royal Gardener but has become corrupted with Malaise.
The new biomes are similar to the Stilt Village, Clock Tower and Time Keeper areas and are intended as alternate paths to make the mid-game runs interesting. These new paths will introduce a chance encounter of a homicidal pet sword and slightly psychotic enemies like the Myopic Crow, the Clumsy Swordsman, the Compulsive Gravedigger and more. It will then culminate with the final boss The Scarecrow.
The new maniacal sword is designed to bring Brutality players a real counterpart to the Great Owl and Mushroom Boi. Scythes have been added too. There are seven new weapons in total: Lightning Rods, Ferryman’s Lantern, Scarecrow’s Sickles, Iron Staff, Snake Fans, Seranade, and Cocoon. Each one will help players in different areas of the two new biomes. There are also 10 new outfits to check out.
Update 21, the Malaise Update, has changed the way the late game mechanics work. The Malaise Update will be released on consoles in February. It is currently available on PC.
Dead Cells is now available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
