Motion Twin is sticking to its promise of releasing Dead Cells this year. The game is now on track for an August release, and you can pick it up, too.

Dead Cells has been in Early Access for exactly a year now, and it’s become something of a sleeper hit as far as indies go. We learned a few months ago that the game will see a full release later this year. Now, developer Motion Twin is inclined to share that the game will release in August. Furthermore, the game’s price is expected to go up when it releases. It’s currently purchasable at $19.99 on Steam and GOG.com.

No exact release date has been announced for the game yet, which is smart given that E3 is right around the corner and the developer probably doesn’t want the game to clash with an unannounced major release.

Motion Twin has also announced a partnership with Merge Games. Together, the two will bring Dead Cells to retail stores, but only for the PS4 and Switch versions of the game. Apart from these platforms (and of course, PC), the game will also release digitally on Xbox One.

These aren’t the only announcements Motion Twin has for Dead Cells, however. The French studio has also announced a new update for the Early Access version of the game: the Baguette Update. It’s already live for all players. Here’s what it contains:

“The Baguette Update” brings a major rework to the core game, which includes a complete overhaul of the item upgrade system “The Forge”, legendary item drops, new ways to customize items, a revamped UI and the kind of polish you expect from a finished game.
