Dead Cells artwork for the The Queen & the Sea DLC

[Update]: The Queen & the Sea expansion has now arrived and so far it's looking quite solid!

It's only been a short while since the Everyone is Here update brought with it a massive assortment of fun crossover items, cosmetics and weapons, and already we have more content coming! This time around we're not talking about a mere update, however, but rather a proper new expansion - The Queen & the Sea.

Much like the previous DLCs, The Queen & the Sea will bring with it two endgame biomes to explore: the Infested Shipwreck and the Lighthouse. These will run in parallel to the High Peak Castle and Throne Room levels, which also means that there will be a challenging boss waiting for you at the very end. So in order to make the experience as memorable as possible, beating the boss will also give you a brand new ending!

Naturally, there will also be fancy new weapons to acquire, as well as new enemies to clobber with said weapons. The details are few and far between, but what I can tell you is that one of the weapons will have you smash enemies over the head with an actual shark! And no, I'm not joking! Have a look:

While no exact release date has been given just yet, you can expect to see The Queen & the Sea in early 2022 at a $5 price tag. To learn a little bit more about it, as well as check out any future previews, you should hop on over to Steam.

Enjoy, and I'll leave you with the very brief teaser:
