Dead Cells: Rise of the Giant Coming To PC This Week, Gets Insane Animated Trailer

Console versions of the game to see free DLC at a later date

With the imminent release of Dead Cells’ upcoming new free DLC, Rise of the Giant, right around the corner, indie developer Motion Twin has released a fantastic animated trailer to kick things off.

Produced by French animation studio Bobby Prod, the “Dude, Where’s My Torch?” trailer stars the game’s nameless reanimated protagonist as he dodges death in a dank and dingy cave, only to come face to face with a giant skeleton – one of the two bosses featured in the Rise of the Giant DLC. It’s quirky, beautiful, and more than a little brutal; a perfect fit for the game that inspired it.

Watch the trailer for yourself below:

The Dead Cells: Rise of the Giant DLC releases on March 28th for PC. The console versions of the game will be receiving the update at an undetermined date. It includes a number of enhancements and additions such as 10 new enemy types and weapons, a new stage to conquer and three new skills to master.
