Dead Cells: The Queen and the Sea DLC, the game's biggest update yet, is finally live, bringing with it tons of new content, and developer Motion Twin has released a lovely new animated trailer to celebrate.
Bringing an epic conclusion to the narrative that began in the previous two DLCs, The Bad Seed and Fatal Falls, The Queen and the Sea sees the Beheaded seeking away off of the island. The animated trailer gives us a quick glimpse at the two biomes that players will be facing - the Infested Shipwreck, and The Lighthouse.
The developer has confirmed that the run is parallel to the High Peak Castle and Throne Room levels, with the Infested Shipwreck offering a more traditional experience, complete with eldritch horrors to take on, while The Lighthouse is a new vertical style of level that requires you to move quickly upwards to outrun the climbing flames.
Finally, The Queen of the title will serve as the new boss fight in the game, and she'll even adapt and change her tactics based off of your combat strategy. Beat her, and players will be treated to an entirely new ending to the game. You won't be alone on your journey, however, with players able to get a new evolving pet, the Leghugger, as well as some cool new weapons.
You can check out the launch trailer down below. Dead Cells: The Queen and the Sea DLC is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
