Dead Cells has been one of the more memorable roguelite platformers in recent memory. It does a great job at attracting players with its approachable nature, but the farther along you get, the more you realize just how deep the progression system is and how high the skill ceiling is.

The new weapon should give players novel ways to approach the Souls-like combat. Having new skins is always great. They let you customize how you see fit. And then with the new enemy type, players have the pleasure of finding chinks in their armor.

This December patch may not be the biggest update that has come to Dead Cells, but at this point, anything is better than nothing. It hasn’t been too long since the game received new content either. Motion Twin seems keen on keeping the content flowing as to give their loyal fans continued excitement throughout the year.

Motion Twin has also announced a bigger update here in a couple of months. What it will entail is still a mystery, but at least the developer is giving fans something to keep them busy.

Who knows what they have up their sleeve? Either way, it’s just great to see this beloved game continue to shine. It deserves all the of the praise it’s getting even still in 2020.

If you’re new to Dead Cells, you can expect an incredibly beautiful and fast-paced platformer that really caters to the player’s skill level. Even if you don’t have a lot of experience with this genre, you can start out gradual and then really kick things up in the later portions of the game.
