Developers Motion Twin and Evil Empire announced a major new expansion pack, “Dead Cell”, “Queen” and “Ocean” will be launched on January 6. The DLC clearly “ends the road we started with bad seeds and deadly games many years ago. [the previous major DLC offerings]. The ending of the trilogy requires some special modifications, and we believe we have added a lot to this DLC. “
This is a late game content that provides an alternative to the “normal” ending path, and features rotting shipwrecks and lighthouse biomes, the latter looks particularly interesting. A big inspiration for Dead Cells is the Metroid series, which recently released Metroid Fear on Switch: In this entry, Sams is hunted by a seemingly unstoppable enemy in the game and has to flee from it.
The Burning Beacon brings this concept into “Dead Cell” and brings a double blow to the player. When you enter the lighthouse, it will immediately begin to burn, and you must scale it when the flames rise. At the same time, a new kind of enemy called the Queen’s Guardian will chase you mercilessly (pictured below), and you must avoid and delay as much as possible when you get up.
The cherry on the cake is the addition of a new final boss, of course the queen, she brings a new ending to the game, and suggests that you can finally escape the island of the game. Like all previous DLC Queen and the Sea, a bunch of cosmetics, various new enemy types, and then new weapons have been added.
Yes, you can get a shark, you can throw it away, it will bite the enemy on the road, and then you can pick it up and throw it away again, or use it as a big stick. The DLC also added a trident and a pirate hooker, but honestly, they are a bit concealed by the weaponized Great White, you can use it to eat enemies or mash them into a paste.
“Queen and the Ocean” will be released on January 6, 2022, and will be priced at 4.49 GBP/4.99 USD. This is the Steam page.
