Dead Cells is getting a new update in the form of the eponymous Boss Rush, which adds in exactly that mode, but also a whole bunch more. There are new skins and mutations to unlock, along with a new weapon to master and skill to utilise, and best of all, it's all free and coming to consoles later this month.

The show's star here is, of course, the Boss Rush Mode itself, which is a separate mode in which you will be pitted against a series of ever-escalating boss encounters. You must overcome each to reach the next tier. Modifiers will be added in the later stages, and the rushes themselves will consist of bosses you have at least met in the standard mode (you don't need to have beaten them).

Developer Motion Twin has put out a VLOG, which looks at the update and the work that went into creating it in more depth, and you can check it out for yourself below.
