Dead Cells has received a new update, adding in several new accessibility options to open up the game to more people.
The free Breaking Barriers update adds in a new accessibility menu, from which players can change the font size and type, customise background colours, remove blood, customise controls, and loads more.
Additionally, a new Assist Mode has been added to the game, with its own menu. From here, players can choose to have multiple, or even infinite, lives in a single run of the game. You can also toggle on auto-hit, which automatically targets nearby enemies with your primary melee weapon. The whole map can be instantly revealed for players who struggle with special awareness, and damage from traps and enemies can be adjusted.
“The intent of this update is to allow players who struggle to, or cannot play, Dead Cells to be able to experience the game as we intended. We had feedback during beta testing that some people who don’t ‘need’ Assist Mode will use it regardless and the result is that they won’t play Dead Cells as a challenging roguelike,” said an Evil Empire spokesperson. “We’ve put multiple messages regarding this in-game, but in the end it’s up to the player how they want to enjoy the game. However, we will not disable achievements for players who use these options. We are not going to make it possible for people to play the game and then take achievements away from them.”
You can see plenty of these new options in action in the Breaking Barriers developer log video, as well as the full patch notes, down below.
