We've rather liked the look of Dead Cells since it was first shown off some time ago, and we now finally have a release date for the roguelike action game. You'll be making your way through procedurally generated dungeons from 7th August 2018.
The above trailer tells you all you need to know: as you battle your way across the game's various environments, you'll unlock persistent upgrades, find unique weapons, and face off against big bosses. It was one of our favourite games at EGX Rezzed 2018, and we think it'll be well worth a look when it launches next month.
Are you excited for Dead Cells on PS4? Prepare to die in the comments below.
I was sold at permanent upgrades.
Haha but seriously, it’s why I loved Rogue Legacy and didn’t like the binding of issac. I’m playing through Salt and Sanctuary right now and I love this style of game (to play alongside the God of Wars and Detroit’s of the gaming world)
Looks interesting, but I wish it didn't follow the whole pixelated trend. Simple graphics would have been fine. Just like I'd rather watch movies with sound and colours.
Why does this look so good?
Been keeping an eye out on this for ages now. Good news that there is not long to wait for the PS4 release.
@AFCC Fun fact the game uses 3D models with pixel shading
Vive la france.

@AFCC Definitely.its on to the championship.word up son.anyway this game looks great.definitely a 9 out of 10 from pushsquare word up son
mouth watering stuff
Looks good but I'm getting tired of pixelated style games I didn't grew up in the 8 bit to have nostalgia so it's getting boring getting the same cheap art style over and over again at least this one it's not fully pixelated and has 3DS models but you can tell it has pixelated inspiration
@Jriibz Ha right, on early access for, what, years now? Maybe this port is the reason for that. And as you say, so many positive reviews. I'll be buying it just in time for vacation, hehe...
@GKO900 To be fair I'm not sure if nostalgia plays a huge part in the decision by a lot of devs, the quality and levels that pixel art is capable of now vs even less 10 years ago is dramatic
@bbtothe I think it does by a certain extent if you go to Nintendolife they prefer pixel art style and also because it's cheaper and I agree some pixel games look good but I don't want everyone making just pixel games I feel like some of them are becoming too pricey for what they truly are and there are too many already but that's just me
Mentioned this game the other week on a forum thread, have had the PC early access version for some time now and can honestly say the game is brilliant. The combat is very fluid and satisfying with an almost rhythmic tempo to it and it has that 'just one more go' quality to it, with you always making some progress towards an upgrade or beating a boss/level with each run you make. Anyone who is dismissing it as another pixel art indie game is going to miss out here (and is probably being a little hypocritical when they stick in to their console the next game in some AAA franchise).
