Dead Cells Launches Digitally on PS5 This Month

June 26, 2023

Evil Empire and Motion Twin are ready to usher in a new age of Dead Cells, and what better way to do it than by bringing the hit 10 million-selling title to PlayStation 5. Dead Cells’ digital PlayStation 5 version launches on June 29 for 24,99$ and will be available for free for PS Plus Extra subscribers and as a free upgrade for PlayStation 4 owners of the game.


Exclusive to Dead Cells’ PlayStation 5 version are feedback features that allows adventurers to venture even deeper into their ongoing runs. Feel every enemy you take down with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers – for example: the DualSense controller pushes back if you try to use an item that’s on cooldown, providing a smart assist so you can switch up strategies to combat oncoming enemies. Additional lights and sound effects from the DualSense controller contribute to the atmosphere of Dead Cells and immerse you in entirely new ways.


Dead Cells’ digital PlayStation 5 version arrives ahead of the game’s physical retail launch on the platform, slated for August 11. Evil Empire and Motion Twin have partnered with Merge Games for a series of Signature edition physical launch versions of Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania, containing goodies such as a reversible retro cover, outer sleeve, gorgeous enamel pins, an art booklet and more. Both Standard and Signature edition versions of Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania will include all of the game’s DLC.
