Dead Cells’ 26th update brings together the best and brightest of the indie action-adventure genre. The aptly named Every Is Here patch adds familiar faces from games like Hollow Knight and Guacamelee along with their respective weapons that can be used in-game.
The free update, available now on PC and on consoles later this year, lets players dress in the costumes of protagonists from Hollow Knight, Hyper Light Drifter, Blasphemous, Guacamelee !, Skul: The Hero Slayer and Curse of the Dead Gods . Better still, you’ll use each character’s weapons / abilities. You largely control how you will remember them, but have a Dead Cells twist. Motion Twin has the features and statistics for each weapon detailed below:
Hollow Knight – Reiner Nagel: Can attack up and down. If you attack in midair down, you will crash into your enemies and deal critical damage.
Blasphemous – Face Bottle: Smash a bottle on your forehead, do minor harm to yourself, and convert 35 percent of your lack of health into recovery.
Hyper Light Drifter – Weapon & Sword: The weapon marks its targets and deals damage at the same time. The sword deals critical damage to the marked targets, increasing with the number of shot counters on the target. Sword hits also charge the gun’s ammunition, which does not passively charge.
Guacamelee! – Pollo performance: Turn into a chicken for a few seconds and naturally fire multiple explosive eggs around you.
Skul: The Hero-Slayer – Bones: Smash enemies with a stick of bones. The hitting with the second attack activates a whirlwind attack that deals critical damage.
Curse of the Dead Gods – Machete & Pistol: Cut twice with a machete. The third attack uses the pistol to deal critical damage to nearby enemies. Holding the attack button loads a slow and strong ranged attack.
To access the new content, you will need to complete the challenges from a new book at the beginning of the game. A new character will be unlocked for each completed challenge. Weapons and skills can be found in Lore Rooms, a new area in the game.
