Dead Cells The Queen & The Sea DLC gameplay
Dead Cells gained brand new DLC this week in the form of The Queen & The Sea, and we now have gameplay. Fans can check out 15 minutes of footage.
If you’re curious as to what the Dead Cells The Queen & The Sea DLC has to offer, read up on the following overview:
The Queen & The Sea DLC takes place within two brand new Biomes: The Infested Shipwreck and The Lighthouse. Parallel to the High Peak Castle and Throne Room levels, the new Biomes introduce players to a rotten shipwreck where you will be hunted by eldritch horrors (of course) through the bowels of this spooky and haunted old vessel. The second Biome, The Lighthouse, introduces vertical exploration of 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. This final Biome is as epic and refreshing as it is challenging.
And because we can’t introduce new Biomes without also introducing a horrific new Boss, an all-new and unexpectedly elegant character makes its debut at the top of The Lighthouse. Introducing The Queen. And so that you are greeted afresh and without expectation, we’re not going to say anything more about her until after launch. You’re welcome.
To combat the new enemies and challenges you’ll encounter, The Queen & The Sea introduces a new evolving pet to add to your arsenal and nine deadly new weapons. Your new pet, the Leghugger, is an evolving, summonable creature who feeds by attacking your enemies until it slowly transforms into its stronger adult state which is … well, kind of awesome, we think. Among the new weapons in the DLC is a Hand Hook that throws enemies into walls, The Abyssal Trident, which is a hidden treasure in the depth of the shipwreck attainable by a secret side quest, and The Queen’s Rapier, a powerful weapon that slices through reality. Plus, tons of new outfits and secrets to unlock. And yes, you can now throw a living shark at mobs in Dead Cells.
