Dead Cells: The Queen & The Sea DLC is coming 2022

Motion Twin announced another big paid DLC for Dead Cells. The DLC is called The Queen & The Sea and will add new biomes, a new end boss, and a new ending to the game. It is currently planned to launch sometime in 2022 for Nintendo Switch and other platforms.


  • New DLC coming Q1 2022 – wishlist it here and we’ll love you forever!
  • DLC will be $4.99 to fund continued Dead Cells development & Motion Twin project
  • It finishes the path started with The Bad Seed and Fatal Falls, giving a new ending to the game
  • Free updates will continue until the end of time, well for another year at the very least

The Queen & the Sea will be coming Q1 2022!

The route that we started so long ago with The Bad Seed and Fatal Falls will be neatly tied off with a slightly unconventional bow. The usual two new biomes will be there, but one of them is definitely not the standard-issue Dead Cells level that you know and love…

Of course there’s also a deadly boss waiting for you at the end of the road – no prizes for guessing who that is! Oh, and if you beat them you’ll be getting a whole new ending.

The two new biomes are called the Infested Shipwreck and the Lighthouse – these will be a parallel to the High Peak Castle and Throne Room levels. Yep, the Hand of the King won’t be the only final challenger anymore.

Before you jump on me I know the spoiler boss exists as well!

There’ll be new weapons & enemies to play with of course, and a new not-so-cuddly pet – we’ll be putting out more details on all that as we get closer to release day.

The DLC will be $4.99 or equivalent, just like the other two. Charging this helps to support Motion Twin during the development of their next project, as well as continuing free updates of Dead Cells.

After the DLC that is exactly what we’ll be doing – releasing more free stuff! And we’ll continue to do that for at least another year. There’s already a good chunk of content planned and being worked on right now with some fresh ideas in play, so you shouldn’t be getting bored with us anytime soon.

Oh Motion Twin how I love your approach to Dead Cells, back to 5 boss cells here we go.
