Corrupted Update 15 releases for Dead Cells on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Thank to Motion Twin and Evil Empire. Announcing yet another Big Update for Dead Cells. This is now live through Humble Store, Steam, hopefully GOG soon.

The Corrupted Update releases for Dead Cells. The update is now live on Linux, Mac and Windows PC.

The Corrupted Update adds a new optional mini biome, mirroring Prison Depths. This also offers shorter challenges. While featuring one cursed chest at the beginning.
Additionally, the Corrupted Update introduces Scroll Fragments. These can be combined to make a whole triple scroll. Experienced players should also appreciate the Recycling Tubes. A new meta upgrade that is unlockable. But only when beating the Hand of the King for the first time. So this is Dead Cells initial unlockable difficulty, BC1.

Specifically for players battling in the higher difficulties. Recycling Tubes replace the starting gear with four sets of five random items. So melee, range, shield and two skills. And players can also choose which one to start with.
The Corrupted Update is designed to smooth out the difficulty. At least for the first level for advanced players. Giving you a bit of momentum and getting back to kicking butt right out of the gate.

The Corrupted Update is waiting

Other additions to the game include the Explorer’s Instinct. A new rune which reveals the whole map and points of interest. A complete rebalancing of the biomes and paths. Plus three new Tactics mutations: Crows Feet, Tactical Retreat and Networking. Crow’s Feet allows you to place up to nine Crow’s Feet on the ground. This both damages and slows enemies. The Corrupted Update brings the Tactical Retreat. This gives you the ability to slow nearby enemies. Preventing them from inflicting malaise by dodging them just in time. And also Networking links all enemies that have a projectile lodged in them. Sharing damage taken by one with all linked baddies.

With a ton of quality of life additions from the community wishlist. All the details can be found here:
