Dead Cells' big free Rise of the Giant DLC update is heading to Switch next week

Dead Cells fans impatiently awaiting the arrival of the game’s massive free Rise of the Giant DLC on Switch, following its PC release in March, may now unclench: developer Motion Twin has confirmed via a post to the console’s News channel, that it’s coming next week, on 23rd May.

Rise of the Giant, for those that haven’t been staying abreast of Dead Cells developments, is a bit of a whopper, expanding on the dungeon-crawling rogue-like’s unflappably excellent core in a multitude of ways. Fire up the game after the free update and you’ll be treated to two new areas and bosses, ten new enemies, three new skills (including a flying pet), ten new weapons (such as the Giant Killer and Bo├» Axe), and a new Skinning system.

The latter enables players to spruce up the game’s flame-headed protagonist with a choice of 50 outfits, unlocked by acquiring blueprints from fallen foes and elsewhere.
