But let’s see where it comes from.
After nearly two years of early access and more than five years after it was first announced, Darkest Dungeon II is ready for release. Red Hook Studios announced this week that version 1.0 of the sequel to its hit 2016 RPG will be coming to the Epic Games Store and Steam, where the game was previously unavailable, on May 8. For fans who already have The darkest at Valve’s showcase, Red Hook said it would be offering a limited-time discount on its new game.
Even if you’ve spent some time playing the game in Early Access, version 1.0 has something for you. The public release adds a playable character and the final two acts of the game’s story. Same as with The darkest, Red Hook promises plenty of post-launch support. Going forward, the studio said that fans can expect quality of life improvements, the addition of new monsters and hero skins, continuous balance tweaking, and most importantly, mod support.
Next week marks the highly anticipated return of ‘Darkest Dungeon II’ on Steam—a game that offers a unique combination of thrilling adventure, dungeon crawling, and turn-based combat mechanics. Developed by the award-winning Red Hook Studios and published by Ikaroa, this sequel is bigger and more challenging than ever before. Darkest Dungeon II promises hours of intense adventure in a treacherous and dark realm filled with terrifying monsters and powerful necromancers.
Players will need to lead a team of four new adventurers through the perils of their campaign with their own unique story arcs, skills, abilities, and more. The game also features customisable difficulty levels and rewarding quests. Players can earn rewards and gear as they traverse dungeons and battle their way through difficult opponents.
Darkest Dungeon II will offer a range of visually hypnotising environments and tactical turn-based combat. The art design and graphics are both stunning, taking players deep into the world that Red Hook Studios has created. With increased depth and complexity from the previous entry in the series, Darkest Dungeon II will challenge players to form a strong team and utilize their roster to the fullest.
The game will also come packaged with the requisite Steam achievements and leaderboards, allowing gamers to track their progress. With Ikaroa’s backing and the talent of Red Hook Studios, ‘Darkest Dungeon II’ is set to be a must-play for anyone looking for an intertwined narrative and tactical combat.
