Curse of the Dead Gods arrived on Nintendo Switch eShop earlier this year, and it’s a pretty good roguelite that’s certainly worth considering. It also seems that the combined efforts of developer Passtech Games and publisher Focus Home Interactive will keep the game rolling for a while yet, as a free DLC tie-in with Dead Cells has been announced.
Dead Cells, of course, has been a massive hit and has delivered a mix of free and paid updates and DLC over the past few years. In terms of the tie-in for Curse of the Dead Gods, the ‘Curse of the Dead Cells’ update will arrive for free on 14th April. There’ll be a new curse and two-handed weapon style, and the press release says the following about specific Dead Cells-themed content.
A new Curse, the Curse of the Headless, will let players move faster while receiving more damage, with a visual twist emblematic of Dead Cells’ main character. Three new weapons inspired by Dead Cells will be added: the Sword of Conjunctivius, the Broadsword of the Knight and the Crossbow of the Condemned. Each is fashioned after its equivalent from Dead Cells. Finally, a new Challenge Room players can find during their runs will feature Dead Cells’ Cursed Chest: you’ll have to win its challenge to earn rare weapons for your run, including a cursed one.
