A New Update for Dead Cells Called Legacy Update is out

This is one hell of an update so let’s get our analysis on it

This update released by Motion Twin reintroduces all of the game’s old versions which brings back the glory days of Dead Cells for those feeling nostalgic. From their Steam Blog Post, Motion Twin said:

“The Legacy Update is something that we’ve been wanting to do for a long time. As we moved towards regular updates and iterations on the game, we were always bugged by the fact that we were drastically changing the experience that a lot of people had come to love (something that you all have vocaly reminded us of on occasion).

From here we always wondered whether it would be possible to dig up the old versions of the game and store them somewhere, so that interested players and future generations of developers could look back at how our little game developed and grew into the Action Game of the Year 2018.

So, now you can load up every major iteration of the game from the first build of Early Access right up to present, and we will of course make sure that we stock all of our future major updates in there too. This way, the nostalgic, the ragers and the “it was better before” crowd will always have the option of playing the version of the game that they loved.”

That’s all good, but how can we get our hands on these updates?

It’s Simple, just follow the following instruction:

1- Go to your Steam game library.
2- Right click on Dead Cells and click “properties”.
3- Select the tab “Betas”.
4- In the first dropdown box select the version you’d like to play.
5- Click close and wait for the upload to finish downloading.
6- Start playing.

The Legacy Update is currently only available on PC, but don’t worry console gamers, as Motion Twin said “the updates will come to all platforms ASAP.”

The last thing to mention is that the patch also does a few extra things, such as preventing Steam cloud hack or as mentioned by Motion Twin:

” I won’t go so far as to call it a “fix” but we’ve now made it so that there is regularly a backup of your saves to a folder that SteamCloud can’t get to and delete (which is how so many people have lost their saves up until now). So from here on it, you should, if you lose your save be able to find this backup folder and get it back… Emphasis on the should…”

And finally moving to the last updates offered in this HUGE patch:

New Weapons, Weapon reworks, New Mutations and finally a nice Christmas skin featuring (jolly fat drunk man).

Well that was one hell of an update and as a console gamer, I can’t wait to get my hands on this one when it’s released on the consoles later on.
