Since the acclaimed roguelike’s release a couple of years ago, Motion Twin has continuously rolled out free updates, each replete with plenty of content for players to explore. The “Bestiary” update that arrived in April, for instance, added in half a dozen new enemies, a fresh batch of outfits, and two brand-new items.
Dead Cells serves as the perfect example of a runaway success. As of July of this year, the title had moved an impressive three million units across all platforms. And the indie hit from Motion Twin has since joined the slate of PS Now games, where it will remain available to subscribers for an unspecified period of time.
Dead Cells is available now on the PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Xbox One platforms.
