Dead Cells Fatal Falls DLC is here with a brilliant new animated trailer

The latest Dead Cells DLC, titled Fatal Falls, is available now on all platforms.

This is all well and good, but honestly the anime-style trailer up top totally steals the show. The Bobby Prod-produced "latest chapter in the animated trailer series" follows a Beheaded on a mission to avenge the death of his slug friend, and "a clingy wannabe friend whose only wish is to hang out with the Beheaded." It's weird, charming, and it deserves its own full-length series.

Anyway, Fatal Falls is the second Dead Cells DLC pack, following The Bad Seed from last year. Whereas The Bad Seed focused on early-game content, Fatal Falls is all about expanding the mid-game. As such, it adds The Fractured Shrines and The Underlying Shores biomes, eight new enemies, seven new weapons, and a new boss, The Scarecrow, which is based on the old Royal Gardener.

If you've had your eye on Dead Cells for a while, or maybe want to buy it on another platform, Steam is running a sale that takes 50% off the base game and 49% off The Fatal Seed Bundle, which includes all the DLC. The Complete (For Now) Bundle includes all DLC as well as the soundtrack, and that's 52% off right now as well.
