The compliments to Dead Cells are wasted. Motion Twin’s roguelite Metroidvania has sold more than 6 million copies and has been supported over the past five years with dozens of free patches and DLCs, plus three paid expansions at a fraction of the cost. Now, however, the team has realized that despite being a “difficult but fair” video game, Dead Cells presents a challenge that is too high for some players, which is why the new update Breaking Barriers was released today.
Marketing Manager Matthew Houghton explained in a new VLOG that the Breaking Barriers update aims to destroy Dead Cells ‘ entry barriers, focusing on difficulty and accessibility. Starting today, players can select many new options from the game menu to make the adventure easier, completely customizing the damage received, the speed of the traps, and many other elements. In addition, the update allows you to customize subtitles and many other settings for visually impaired players. It introduces various aids that should make the experience complete even for people with various physical impediments.
Dead Cells: Breaking Barriers puts everyone on an equal footing and sets the stage for the next free and paid DLCs. The game will be supported for years, and new content will arrive before the end of 2022.
