Dead Cells is giving out Rise of the Giant DLC for free this month and players will get the chance to battle in a new place called Cavern, which is only accessible once the game is beaten.
In Cavern, players will encounter new enemies, new bosses and the place is filled with traps, along with ten new enemy types. On a higher difficulty settings, these new enemies will appear at much earlier stages. Developer Motion Twin said that there’s a new hidden level which is only available once Cavern is cleared, and that level is really punishing and will push the best Dead Cell players to their limits. However, players will rewarded with a brand new ending if they are able to clear the hidden level.
Dead Cells’ Rise of the Giant DLC is coming to the game on March 28. For those who are new to Dead Cells, the game is a rogue-lite, metroidvania inspired, action-platformer. Players gets to explore a sprawling, ever-changing castle and battlling castle’s keepers in a 2D souls-lite combat. There’s no checkpoints. A sadistic game not for the weak-hearted, it’s kill, die, learn, repeat.
