The bank is now open! Dead Cells “Break the Bank” update is now available on all platforms. This patch also brings many quality-of-life changes and bug fixes, so read further to learn more.

New Biome

The Bank is an optional biome accessible via the flashy chest that pops up randomly during your run. Interacting with this chest will effectively replace the next biome in your path.

In addition, the bank contains one less scroll than the “best” biome that’s being replaced, but you are guaranteed a Cursed Chest in return. For instance, if the biome that was replaced has four scrolls, the bank will reward you with three scrolls plus a Cursed Chest.

This optional biome contains some platforming sequences that give pretty good rewards as well, so long as you have the patience and perseverance to take them on.
