The release date for Darkest Dungeon 2’s early access is set for October

The original Darkest Dungeon was also borne of early access, having launched on Steam back in 2015.

Darkest Dungeon 2, the long-awaited sequel to developer Red Hook Games’ acclaimed gothic horror RPG, will be launching into early access via the Epic Games Store on 26th October.

The resulting pre-release refinements ultimately helped make an already fantastic game even better, and Darkest Dungeon’s punishing blend of dungeon crawling and visceral turn-based battling – in which your team of four misfits is at perpetual risk of unraveling in the face of multitudinous Lovecraftian horrors – released to significant critical acclaim.

As for Darkest Dungeon 2, Red Hook has remained relatively cagey about what to expect from its sequel since its announcement back in 2019. We do known it’ll offer players “a glimpse of the supernatural apocalypse twisting and distorting the world beyond the estate” of the first game, however, and that it’ll have its own “creative and thematic identity”, retaining some elements of the original but jettisoning others.

Fresh monsters, bosses, and challenges are promised, and combat will receive a “significant tune-up”, delivered within “a completely different metagame structure”. And the whole thing is being presented in stylised 3D this time around too.

The Darkest Dungeon games challenge players to assemble a team of heroes and charge into battle against fearsome monsters. That’s not your only enemy, though; you’ll have to deal with psychological effects that could be a detriment to your party. It can be a supremely challenging (and highly compelling) experience, so the news of a sequel isn’t much of a surprise to anyone who’s been following the game.

We haven’t heard much about the game in recent months other than the vague notion of a 2021 release date. Now, Red Hook Studios has finally confirmed that you’ll be able to dive into the world of Darkest Dungeon 2 late next month.
