 To celebrate the phenomenal success of Dead Cells, we are delighted to offer this refreshed retail version of the smash-hit, roguevania game. On the first anniversary of its launch and following its announcement as “Action Game of the Year”, beating games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Destiny 2: Forsaken and Far Cry 5 we have revamped the original game, adding a reversible cover featuring new artwork, an exclusive keyring and a new art booklet featuring the game’s instantly recognisable imagery. The cart contains version 1.0 of the game, subsequent free updates, including The Rise of the Giant DLC, will be automatically updated when your device is connected to the internet.

DEAD CELLS

Dead Cells puts you in control of a failed alchemic experiment trying to figure out what's happening on a sprawling, ever-changing and seemingly cursed Island. Tough but fair combat, responsive controls, challenging foes, permadeath and of course, the emergency panic roll to get you out of trouble, make for a demanding, visceral and cathartic action game.

Experience a Roguevania, mixing an interconnected world, branching paths and unlockable skills with the constant adrenaline-pumping threat of permadeath.  No checkpoints. You either vanquish the final boss in one go, or you try again. However, you keep some of your progress for successive runs; new paths you’ve unlocked, access to new levels, mutations, abilities and weapons.

Speaking of weapons, Dead Cells features a plethora of ways to slay your enemies. A large variety of swords, bows and of course spells, but also whips, grenades and turrets, each one with its own unique twist. Plus, mutations and scrolls allow you to build and customize your character differently with each and every run.

At the end of the day though, it’s YOUR skills as a player that matter most! Roguelites are about constantly sharpening your skills, until what was an insurmountable obstacle becomes a walk in the park. Patience, you’ll get better!… eventually.

Features

  • RogueVania: The progressive exploration of an interconnected world, with the replayability of a rogue-lite and the adrenaline pumping threat of permadeath.
  • 2D Souls-lite Action: Tough but fair combat, the iconic dodge roll, more than 90 weapons and spells with unique gameplay… The unforgiving action wed to the absence of any kind of safety net makes for an adrenaline pumping ride each and every run.
  • Nonlinear progression: Sewers, Ossuary or Ramparts? Once unlocked, special permanent abilities allow you to access new paths to reach your objective. Opt for the path that suits your current build, your play style, or just your mood.
  • Exploration: Secret rooms, hidden passages, charming landscapes. Take a moment to stroll the towers and breath in that fresh sea mist infused air...

      IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ORDERS SHIPPING TO CHINA

      We are experiencing significant delays to items being processed and delivered in China. Whilst items destined for China are leaving the UK on time, flight cancellations and the redirection of all incoming export items via Shanghai means there are considerable delays to items being processed and delivered in China. This has created a backlog with China Post, which will take some time to clear. We are monitoring the situation closely and we will provide updates as we get them. Please be aware that items destined for China are taking considerably longer to be delivered than usual.

       

      It takes approximately one week to ship all the orders. You should receive a shipping notification email once your order has been processed and dispatched. If you haven't heard from us within a week of the shipping date please reach out to us at support@mergegames.com.
