Dead Cells has been out on Steam in early access for a while now, but an official release date has finally been announced. The game will be officially out on August 7, 2018, which is only a month from now. With the announcement also came a new game trailer that shows off what the game has to offer.
The Metroidvania style hack-and-slash sidescrolling roguelite will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Mac, and even Linux. The game is available for pre-order on all platforms except for the Nintendo Switch (pre-orders will start on July 18), and pre-ordering the game will give you a 20% discount.
Motion Twin, the developer behind the highly anticipated game, will even release a physical version of the game that you will be able to pick up if you’re still into physical copies. The soundtrack for the game will also be released as a slick looking vinyl. The developers have already confirmed that after the game’s release they will still be working on creating new content, bug fixes, and creating great modding support.
The game is a brutal roguelite game as we see developed by a lot of indie studios. The game will also have permanent upgrades and a perma-death feature. Furthermore, the game contains a total of 13 levels, 4 bosses, 80 weapons and powers, and 4 special skills. The game is absolutely packed with content and if that wasn’t enough it even has a daily run mode. In this mode, you perform a certain run and then will be ranked on a leaderboard to see how you compared with other people around the world.
If you’re interested in picking up this game, make sure you don’t wait too long as the pre-order discount obviously ends when the game is officially released.
