Make a quick buck: The Break the Bank update is available now for Dead Cells on Apple Arcade!

The chest has been open: The latest Dead Cells free update is available now on Apple Arcade with the Break the Bank, Breaking Barriers and Enter the Panchaku balancing update...

The Break the Bank free update introduces a new way of using the gold you bravely earned through your run : you can now invest it to unlock new weapons and mutations.

However, everything comes with a price and you’ll have to risk your savings to get strong yet tricky effects! Enter the bank to take a loan out for gold and face off against your enemies to pay it back before the end. But be careful: they are after your money and have the claws to get it! Will you be blessed by the Midas touch and manage to pull off your heist?

But that’s not all: Dead Cells now suits a wider range of needs with the Breaking Barriers accessibility update! All types of players can now edit the games’s graphics and features to enjoy Dead Cells on a whole new level.

Last but not least, Enter the Panchaku adds several balancing updates with damage buffs and nifty new weapon interactions: you’ll be able to deal more damage with your trusted Gilded Yumi, or stun enemies with the bullets you parried with the Cudgel. The Queen and the Sea handhook afficionados will also pull their attacks way faster!”
