Dead Cells is one of the very best roguelikes available on PlayStation 4, and the market appears to have recognised that. Developer Motion Twin has confirmed sales of the game have now surpassed five million across all platforms, with one-fifth of that impressive statistic sourced from the recent mobile port released in China. While smartphone devices are only just receiving The Bad Seed DLC, it's been available on PS4 for quite some time now. It's just one example of how the French studio has remained commit to updating Dead Cells since its initial 2018 launch.
Back then, we awarded the awesome roguelike a 9/10 rating in the Push Square review. After praising it profusely, we concluded: "A combination of astounding combat mechanics, an unfathomable amount of weapon variety, and a spectacular art style had us coming back for second helpings, while an array of enemies made sure we always had something new to dispose of. Dead Cells has delivered in every way imaginable, making it one of the PS4’s very best."
Since release, the title has been updated with two DLC packs, more weapons, and multiple patches to fix bugs and tweak things under the hood. Are you one of the five million players who have bought Dead Cells? Share your praise in the comments below.
Such a good game. The first rogue-like I've ever played and it's phenomenal. I'm still only on BC1 and don't ever anticipate I'm going to beat this game perfectly, but it just feels so good to play, and I always keep coming back to it.
I also just bought Hades a couple of days ago to try out another rogue-like game, and that is also excellent from what I've played so far! Strong recommendation for them both!
@BranJ0 yup I've been on BC1 since 2019. It was my third or 2nd most played game of 2019 in the wrap up video for that year.
Really looking forward to Hades.
Good game, I have this on ps4, switch, and pc lol. I hope we can get cross-save for at least ps4 and switch
Hoping to get it as a free ps plus title someday
I'm also OK with a huge ~70% discount
Still playing it on my ps4 pro.amazing game.word up son
Easily one of my top 5 games of last generation. Absolutely fantastic in every aspect (visuals, sounds, gameplay, replayability, ...) and the post-launch support is top-notch and well-balanced between free updates and fairly-priced extensions.
I adore this game. I bought it on Switch for the portability but anyone who hasn't bought it should get it on their console of choice. Amazing.
I played it to the end the first time, but then couldn't get through the 2nd time when it became even harder with less retries.
Wicked game..very replayable..
Awesome game, well polished with outstanding fighting mechanics. Although ever since I started playing Hades I couldn't get back to it, is no match for our Zagreus boy.
@CupidStunt I'm stuck at 2 boss souls. I managed to get to the end boss at that point, but never with enough life and flasks to survive that fight... but I keep trying!
Truly fantastic game. Played on PS4 and now mobile (no controller). Just a masterpiece of gaming. Can’t wait to see what these folks do next
