A new Dead Cells content update, lovingly dubbed Update the 13th by developer Motion Twins, is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch (it was previously released for PC). The shiny content update primarily focuses on a multitude of balancing tweaks, bug fixes, and a variety of changes based on community feedback that Motion Twin received. The developer has been incredibly open to community feedback, incorporating a plethora of changes based on fans’ requests. They’ve also made minor graphical and musical changes throughout the game, making it just a bit prettier to look at and listen to.
You can check out the full patch notes for the 13th Dead Cells content update on the official website for the game. They’re really long, so make sure you have the time to read them before you click the link (I mostly just skipped past cause there are so many; sue me).

Rise of the Giant DLC
Recently, Motion Twin released the Rise of the Giant DLC on all platforms, including Nintendo Switch. This was a more significant update and added a few new game modes, spicy weapons, gnarly enemies, and even a whole boss to the already challenging game. If you missed out on the huge content update, you can check out the trailer for the latest DLC down below.
