Dead Cells' Brutal Update adds tons of new content

Ready for a challenge?

Motion Twin's hard-as-nails sidescrolling roguelike Dead Cells arrived on Steam's Early Access programme back in May, and has now breached the bounds of GOG's Games in Development initiative. The "Brutal Update" doubles down on the game's character progression system, overhauling stats and skills in addition to adding new environments and encounters.

If we're done with the "Souls-like" descriptor right enough, a GOG press release describes Dead Cells as "the illegitimate child of a modern Roguelite and an old-school Metroidvania" which I quite like.

People who pick up the game on GoG, where it released today and now has a 25% discount, will have access to the new gubbins right off the bat. Interconnected levels and progressive unlocking of access to the island provide gamers with a real incentive to explore their surroundings.

Dead Cells is now available for PC through Steam and GOG. Roguelites are about constantly getting better, until what was an insurmountable obstacle becomes a walk in the park.

GOG also points out that Dead Cells is subject to a 25 percent discount for the next seven days, which means those interested can get it now for £10.48/$13.81 (full price £13.99/$18.42).
