The Everyone is Here! FREE update for Dead Cells adds weapons and skins from your favorite indie gems – and it arrives today

From Press Release:

Bordeaux, France (Nov. 22, 2021) – Evil Empire and Motion Twin announced today that Dead Cells’ “Everyone is Here” update is now live across PC and consoles. And by everyone, we kind of mean it – characters from Hollow Knight, Blasphemous, Hyper Light Drifter, Guacamelee!, Skul: The Hero Slayer and Curse of the Dead Gods are now playable in this free update across PC today with consoles to follow shortly later this year. Additionally, there is a weapon or skill from each of the aforementioned games that can be found in ‘lore rooms’ which will randomly appear.

The “Everyone is Here” update introduces a book at the start of the game that tasks players with completing a new challenge. Each challenge completed will grant players a character from one of the games.

New weapons and skills are also collectable in newly introduced ‘lore rooms’. The weapons have been designed and implemented to pay tribute to its original game, but with the classic Dead Cells touch that fans have come to know and love.

Additionally, today’s update coincides with a new bundle on Steam that includes Dead Cells, Curse of the Dead Gods, Guacamelee 2 and Skul. The bundle is currently 20 percent off, and Dead Cells is featured solo on Steam at a 40 percent discount.

The list of weapons and skills are below:

  • Hollow Knight – Pure Nail (Can attack upward and downward. Attacking downward while airborne causes you to bounce on your enemies, dealing critical damage.)
  • Blasphemous – Face Flask (Crush a flask on your forehead, dealing low damage to yourself and transforming 35 percent of your missing health into recovery.)
  • Hyper Light Drifter – Gun & Sword (The gun marks its targets while also dealing damage. The sword deals critical damage to the marked targets, increasing with the number of gun marks on the target. Sword hits also recharge the gun’s ammo, which doesn’t recharge passively.)
  • Guacamelee! – Pollo Power (Turn into a chicken for a few seconds, firing several explosive eggs around you because of course.)
  • Skul: The Hero Slayer – Bone (Smash enemies with a bone club. Hitting with the second attack enables a whirlwind attack that deals critical damage.)
  • Curse of the Dead Gods – Machete & Pistol (Slash twice with a machete. The third attack uses the pistol to bump and inflict critical damage to nearby enemies. Holding the attack button charges a slow and powerful ranged attack.)

The update is free for everyone. The entire list of updates can be found here:
