The Bad Seed will arrive in Q1 2020 as first paid DLC for Dead Cells on all available platforms and priced $4.99 only. This premium model will allow dev team to continue producing more free content and major updates in future.

Currently, at least two years worth playable content are on planned roadmap of the studio that largely depends on its success. Regularly introducing new improvements like creatures and secret areas will only increase replayability of the game.

This brand-new DLC will feature two levels for The Prisoner protagonist to explore around, which are just alternative routes from early game. Some old enemies will return in Arboretum and Swamp biomes before enter a creepy boss fight.

Aside from new adversaries, players will get their hands on a giant scythe weapon to wield and a mushroom buddy to keep company. Despite being known for difficulty, devs are planning to make the DLC more accessible for everyone.

To wrap up holiday season of this year, developers are in work for another major update that they intended for long and while nothing about it is revealed yet, it is quite safe to assume that it would arrive before upcoming DLC next year.

Upon handing over development of Dead Cells to a new studio named Evil Empire earlier this year to continue post-launch support, Motion Twin has been working on two new prototype projects and will likely to reveal them very soon.
