When you think of extensive post-launch support, a few games like Terraria, No Man’s Sky, and more come to mind. Motion Twin’s Dead Cells is also worth mentioning, with free content updates even after launching five years ago. However, its next big patch, Update 35, “The End is Near”, will be its last.

“Update 35 for Dead Cells marks the end of our creative journey on the game. After an incredible 5-year collaboration in bringing additional content to Dead Cells’ live-ops, Evil Empire will be pursuing new adventures, and we can’t wait to see what they come up next.

“This comes after much reflection, especially following the awesome success of the ‘Return to Castlevania‘ DLC last year. Our commitment to avoiding the ‘more of the same’ trap and keeping Dead Cells fresh and original has led us to this point; as we’ve seen with other long-running series, it’s crucial not to overextend and risk diminishing the unique charm that makes Dead Cells special to us all.”

Of course, the developer will still fix any bugs and quality-of-life issues across all platforms. As for when Update 35 will launch, it’s not quite ready yet, with “all hands on deck trying to figure this out.” The update will add three new weapons, colorless Mutations, new enemies focused on inflicting curses that appear in different biomes depending on Boss Cell level, 40 new heads and more. There will be more details later, so stay tuned.

The franchise will have other content, like the upcoming Animated Series and the Board Game. Motion Twin also teases the protagonist, the Beheaded, appearing in “another world,” which could mean a collaboration with another title.

Dead Cells is available for PS4, PS5, iOS, Android, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. It crossed 10 million sales last year. Motion Twin is currently working on a brand new co-op title, Windblown, which comes to PC early access sometime this year.
