Dead Cells update on Steam issues details about the coming release for Linux and mac. Since developer Motion Twin is eager to announce that Dead Cells will leave Early Access in August 2018.
“This Seventh Update is the first of a few smaller updates before the lore arrives at launch. And we are hard at work on the Mac and Linux versions! Don’t forget we’ll be pushing a big juicy FREE DLC post release.”
So yes, the latest update brings us one step closer to leaving beta. Also bringing the complete, polished Dead Cells experience to Linux and Mac.
“With the seventh update rolling out on Early Access. Dead Cells is very close to being content complete. The lore being the last piece of the puzzle we’re working on for launch day. Although version 1.0 definitely won’t be the end. As we’ve already promised one major free DLC to the community that made all of this possible.”
—Steve Filby, Producer at Motion Twin

About Dead Cells:
Dead Cells [official website] 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.
