Motion Twin and Evil Empire have announced that the new Dead Cells DLC, The Bad Seed, arrives on February 11 on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for $4.99.

The new DLC for the heavily lauded Dead Cells game, The Bad Seed, takes players through all-new biomes, grants them incredible new weapons, sticks them in front of ultimate baddies and adds an awfully gross blood-sucking beast.

This is the first paid extension to the game after sixteen major free updates, content additions, and overhauls since Dead Cells hit Steam Early Access in 2017, and there are still a butt-load of things we’re planning to add to the game,” said Joan Blachere, creative director at Evil Empire.

Once the DLC is released, players will be introduced to new path choices in the early game, ensuring that all players, no matter their level, will be able to experience crushing new ways to die.

There are two new biomes inhabited by their own distinctive bestiary, The Arboretum, a lush paradise to deceivingly adorable creatures, and The Swamp, where an overgrown arboreal settlement inhabited by ambushing blow gunners and spear wielders is players’ only escape from the gargantuan purple ticks that reign uncontested on the ground.

Triumphing over the numerous perils means players will be rewarded with a conceptually unique armory, including the first double slot weapon as well as a very dedicated and loyal mushroom companion.
