Playdigious is releasing a new DLC for Dead Cells later this month on 26th January for PC and consoles, but it’ll be a little while before the update appears on mobile.

The DLC is called Fatal Falls and it’s the 22nd major update to the award-winning roguelike platformer, bringing new areas, weapons and enemies to the game.

The two new biomes are called The Fractured Shrines and The Undying Shores, which are located mid-game and intended as alternate paths parallel to the Stilt Village, Clock Tower and Time Keeper areas. Besides new paths, they also house enemies such as the Myopic Crow, the Clumsy Swordsman, the Compulsive Gravedigger, culminating with the final boss, The Scarecrow.

Then there are the new weapons, of which the Fatal Falls DLC brings heaps of new toys to play with. Seven new weapons have been added in total: Lightning Rods, Ferryman’s Lantern, Scarecrow’s Sickles, Iron Staff, Snake Fangs, Serenade and Cocoon, with each one helping you in different areas of the two new biomes. Scythes are also a new addition, which are attracted to enemies and follow you around a bit. And finally, because serving killer looks is also important, ten new outfits are being added with the update.

Originally released on PC and consoles in 2018, Dead Cells arrived on iOS in 2019 and on Android just last year. Fatal Falls is the second paid DLC for the game, alongside a steady flow of free content to fill in the gaps between. The first DLC, The Bad Seed, released last year for $4.99 and Fatal Falls will release for the same price.

You can download Dead Cells now on the iOS App Store and Google Play for Android for £8.99. We’ll be sure to update you when the Fatal Falls DLC gets a mobile release date.
