New Dead Cells Update Adds Petting & Panchaku Weapon; More Updates Planned Throughout 2023, Boss Rush Planned For Fall 2022

The Evil Empire and Motion Twin studios have released Update #30 for their critically acclaimed action roguelike, Dead Cells on PC. Consoles will be receiving this new content in the near future.

The new Panchaku weapon has been added, essentially frying pan nunchaku. They are ideal for performing rapid combo strings and frequent critical hits. Additionally, 29 items comprising weapons, skills, and mutations, have undergone extensive rebalancing. Other significant implementations include a crossover with the roguelite Soul Knight, where the Magic Bow has now been added as a useable weapon.

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, is that all pets can now be petted.

You can view the full list of extensive patch notes via the official Dead Cells website, where the developer reveals that even more game updates are planned throughout 2023. A new Boss Rush mode is one of the highly desired features they wish to incorporate in Fall 2022.


The following quote is also worth fully sharing:

“While Evil Empire has continued to grow and has other projects in the works currently under wraps and Motion Twin is also head down on creating its next game, the team assured fans that even after 30 updates, Dead Cells is still considered “mid product lifecycle” which in dev-speak translates to the game remaining a priority internally and that some excellent new features are in the works.”

Dead Cells is an action roguelike where players enter various Biomes to defeat mobs of enemies. Many boss encounters will put the player’s skills to the test. It is currently available on many platforms, including Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox, iOS, Android, and PC via Microsoft Windows and Steam.
