Critically Acclaimed PS5 Game Is Now Free for Some Users

A highly acclaimed PS4 game made its way to PS5 this week. Similar to the PS4 version, the PS5 version of the game is priced at $24.99. However, players who already own the PS4 version can upgrade to the PS5 version for free. The developer of the game stated that the PS5 version is an enhanced edition that leverages features such as haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, audio feedback, and improved lighting to elevate the gaming experience to the next level.

The game in question is Dead Cells, which became available on PS5 yesterday. While the game has yet to be released on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, this marks its first appearance on the next-gen consoles. It's worth noting that Dead Cells isn't particularly demanding in terms of technical specifications, but its gameplay and overall quality make it an excellent choice for players.

Released in 2018 by developer Motion Twin, Dead Cells is a roguelike-Metroidvania game that has received critical acclaim, with Metacritic scores ranging from 87 to 91. It is often regarded as one of the standout games of that year, alongside titles like God of War, Marvel's Spider-Man, and Red Dead Redemption 2.

In Dead Cells, players assume the role of a failed alchemic experiment, embarking on a journey to uncover the mysteries of a sprawling and ever-changing cursed island. Despite being immortal, your character is crippled, relying on possessing other bodies to navigate, explore, and engage in combat. However, the bodies you inhabit are not invincible, and each time they are destroyed, you must return to the dungeon to possess a new one and restart your adventure. This cycle of death and rebirth forms the core gameplay loop of Dead Cells.

Immerse yourself in the world of Dead Cells, a captivating Roguevania experience that blends an interconnected world, diverging paths, and unlockable abilities with the ever-present tension of permadeath. There are no checkpoints to rely on—your success hinges on defeating the final boss in one continuous endeavor, or else starting anew. However, each run grants you the opportunity to retain certain progress, such as unlocked pathways, access to new levels, mutations, abilities, and weapons. Engage in combat that is both challenging and balanced, with responsive controls and formidable adversaries. And when things get dicey, rely on the adrenaline-fueled emergency panic roll to escape danger, ensuring a visceral and satisfying action-packed adventure.
