Darkest Dungeon II Now on Steam and Epic Games Store

It's finally out! Red Hook Studios

Darkest Dungeon II is finally out of early access with the full version now available on Steam and Epic Games Store. This release follows more than four years of development by Red Hook Studios. The game is priced at $39.99 with a limited-time bundle offered for 25% off. The bundle includes not only Darkest Dungeon II but also Darkest Dungeon.

Darkest Dungeon II has players form a party, equip their stagecoach, and set off across the decaying landscape on a quest to prevent an apocalypse caused by their own failures. It's the sequel Darkest Dungeon and features new 3D visuals in a unique style. There's also the new run-based road trip structure along with the improved version of the innovative turn-based combat system. Players can access a dozen playable heroes as well, each having their own five-chapter backstories.

Game features include:

  • Five Campaigns ("Confessions"), each with their own horrifying boss and pervasive mechanics.
  • A roster of 12 heroes, including the recently revealed fan-favorite: The Flagellant.
  • All but the mercenary Bounty Hunter feature five-part backstories with interactive chapters, each of which confers a persistent skill unlock.
  • Four major regions to traverse and explore in addition to the Valley, the dangerous but rewarding Sluice, and unique Mountains per Confession.
  • Extensive metagame progression hub ("The Altar of Hope") with strategic and cosmetic unlocks.
  • Over 60 Steam and EGS achievements.
  • 10 different companion pets, each with different run-defining properties.
  • Optional thematic difficulty modifiers in the form of Radiant and Infernal Flame equippable items, for those who want less or more challenge.

In a statement, Red Hook Studios Co-Founders Chris Bourassa and Tyler Sigman revealed that the game doesn't follow "conventional sequeling" but instead delivers a fresh but familiar experience to challenge both returning and new players. They went on to say that they grew their studio to deliver the vision they have for the game, and worked across the early access to build and polish the experience.
