Dead Cells' Brutal Update adds tons of new content

Set within a sprawling, ever-changing castle packed with ghouls, ghosts, monsters and mutants, Dead Cells has no checkpoints and boasts the mantra: "Kill, die, learn, repeat". Though it's still in Early Access, Motion Twin's procedural platformer is a polished, punishing game that's hard to put down.

Chief among the Brutal Update's changes is the way that players level up.

Dead Cells is a whole new take on some gamer favourites - the illegitimate child of a modern Roguelite and an old-school Metroidvania.

Dead Cells comes to GOG.com within the Games in Development program, which means it's a playable game, but it's not finished just yet. Us poor Steam folk will need to wait until Tuesday to get our constantly dying and coming back to life again hands on the Brutal update. Brutality improves all weapon damage; Tactics boosts your character's active skills, Survival correlates to damage-reducing shields. The change, says Motion Twin, is created to make build choices more interesting, and make non-pure-strength builds more viable, "We're trying to give you a real sense of control and strategy when you choose the tier that you want to upgrade". It's being called the game's "biggest update yet" and it includes a new boss, new levels, new enemies, a new tier system, and various other improvements and features for you to explore.

There's a lot more beyond those top-level additions, however, and the full, lengthy patch notes can be found over on Motion Twin's website.
