Evil Empire and Motion Twin are no strangers to releasing updates for Dead Cells, but today marks a very special occasion. The “Breaking Barriers” has just gone live, and it’s the very first that puts the focus completely on a variety of optional accessibility settings for players. Motion Twin worked closely with the Ablegamers organization and various legends from the Dead Cells community over the past months to design and test these new settings for people with disabilities, as well as the game’s new Assist Mode.

The new options in this update include mobility input adjustments such as hold to second jump/roll, customizable controls and more, along with visual options like UI size and transparency, font size/type, customizable background color filters, no-blood mode plus many more. Everything is collected in a specific accessibility menu to gather all these options in one place.

Assist Mode exists in its own menu and includes the following:

● Multiple lives – Each time you die you can resurrect from the beginning of the biome, in the same state that you started in. You can choose between 1, 3, 7 or infinite lives. This is targeted for players who have involuntary movements or activity, such as muscle spasms, to have another chance if their run is ruined by something that is out of their control.

● Auto-hit – Automatically target nearby enemies with your primary melee weapon. This will automatically attack with your primary weapon, allowing players to just manage their secondary weapon and skills, reducing the need for rapid inputs.

● Adjustable trap damage, enemy damage and enemy health in % increments, plus toggable options for slower parry window and trap speed. This is meant to allow specific, dare we say delicate, adjustment of the game’s challenge while leaving the rest of the game as it is.

● An option to instantly reveal the whole map for players who struggle with spatial awareness.

In addition, the “Breaking Barriers” update comes with eight new weapon reworks, and a reduction in early-game item cost to allow players to unlock new weapons more quickly alongside the crucial life & gold upgrades.

Finally, if you want a look at absolutely everything that’s included in this update, you can find the official patch notes here.
