As promised, The Queen & The Sea, a brand new paid DLC pack for Dead Cells, is now live on Nintendo Switch and other platforms.
Revealed alongside a teaser trailer towards the end of last year, The Queen & The Sea is the game’s biggest chunk of DLC yet, concluding the events and narrative found within the first two DLCs, The Bad Seed and Fatal Falls. It’s said to present “formidable new challenges with two new biomes, new enemies and one badass new boss.” Ooer.
A new animated trailer for the new content is now available (see above), and we have the full rundown of what you can expect to enjoy when buying it right here:
The Queen and the Sea DLC finishes the path that started with The Bad Seed and Fatal Falls, in which after dying all over again trying to save the island from the Malaise, the Beheaded is now seeking for a way out of the island – a way out which he seems to have found in the last DLC, but it’s heavily guarded. The Queen & The Sea DLC takes players through two brand new Biomes: The Infested Shipwreck and The Lighthouse.
The run is parallel to the High Peak Castle and Throne Room levels, introducing players to a variety of new challenges. The first Biome, The Infested Shipwreck, winds you through a rotten shipwreck where you will be hunted by unforgiving eldritch horrors lurking (like they do) in the spooky and haunted old vessel. The second Biome, The Lighthouse, showcases a brand new challenge of vertical exploration not yet seen in Dead Cells.
Players will find themselves in a soaring tower in which players will scramble upward as fast as they can to outrun rising flames while simultaneously fending off highly skilled warriors who want nothing more than to end your run. And because we can’t introduce new Biomes without also introducing a powerful new Boss waiting for you, please meet The Queen, an all-new and unexpectedly elegant character unlike any other boss seen before in the game. The Queen adapts by changing her tactics depending on the players’ combat strategy. Parrying your attacks, sending your projectiles back at you, slicing your own grenades in two and killing your beloved pets are just some of the challenges players will face, and we haven’t even gotten to the part where she slices the whole screen into pieces. Or the entirely new ending.
A variety of deals for the base game and its DLC packs have hit digital stores in celebration of The Queen & The Sea’s release, so make sure to visit your local eShop to get the most up to date prices for your region.
