Evil Empire and Motion Twin today are dropping a new update for Dead Cells which caters to players looking to push themselves even further. Strap in, because we’re getting a Boss Rush mode.
This essentially adds a new layer of challenge by daring players to fight bosses one after another, in a grueling gauntlet of doom. Once players install this update, they’ll be able to enter a brand-new area to face off against the big, bad bosses. Worry not, for you’ll only fight against bosses you’ve already met.
Said bosses will be randomly selected from three different tiers, increasing in difficulty from the first to the third. Modifiers have also been introduced, giving bosses all kinds of buffs, modifications, and summoned minions.

The dev team is also adding new legendary affixes to expand on the huge line-up introduced in the last update. This includes a katana that lets players deflect bullets, Pollo Power: Miracle of Life–an ability that gives players eggs that hatch into enemy-slaying chicks, and many more.
Dead Cells’ Boss Rush mode arrives on PC on Oct. 5 via Steam, and consoles in late October.
