Darkest Dungeon 2

Red Hook Studios has announced a sequel is in the works for Darkest Dungeon, 2016’s gothic turn-based roguelike. The teaser for this announcement was posted to Darkest Dungeon’s official Twitter account.

Darkest Dungeon 2 is set to take players into The Howling End, a chilly and mountainous region. Through the teaser, the narrator reads, “In the howling darkness of the end, men will become monsters—but hope will ride with those courageous enough to carry the flame.” Fans will recognize the narrator as the first game’s iconic character, Ancestor.

At the end of the 37-second video, silhouettes for six existing classes are shown: Grave Robber, Hellion, Highwayman, Leper, Man-at-Arms, and Plague Doctor. They watch the torch burn, possibly suggesting that these characters will be reappearing in the sequel.

PC Gamer had an exclusive talk with Tyler Sigman and Chris Bourassa of Red Hook Studios regarding Darkest Dungeon 2. An Early Access release was discussed during this interview, to which they gave the following response:

“It’s no secret that we are big fans of the Early Access model, but we also are advocates for only doing Early Access if it makes sense for the specific game. Although there are some massive differences in structure between DD1 and DD2, the sequel is still very appropriate for an Early Access type approach.”

A release date and list of supported platforms have yet to be shared.
