The first paid DLC for rogue-lite action-platformer Dead Cells will launch on February 11, the newly released gameplay trailer above reveals.
Set for release on PC and consoles priced at $4.99, The Bad Seed features two extra levels with new weapons, enemies, mechanics and a boss.
Developer Motion Twin says: “The two new levels and their monsters are alternatives to The Courtyard/Toxic Sewers and The Ramparts/Ossuary/Ancient Sewers, with the boss designed to be on par with The Concierge, so hopefully it’ll spice up your early game runs once you’ve played through the core game.”

- The Swamp: A noxious environment ruled by a band of tree dwelling mutans with pointy sticks, sneaky dart shooting frogmen and a bunch of deadly bloodsuckers.
- The Heart of the Swamp: Domain of mama tick, if you’ve seen StarShip Troopers, you get the idea…
