The Roguelike Journey of the Damned has started in Early Access


Darkest Dungeon 2 has started Early Access on PC. The dark game from Red Hook Studios is available for 23.99 euros (exclusive) in the Epic Games Store. German texts are offered (beta version). The voice output is only in English. Wayne June is back on board as the narrator.

The second part relies more on roguelike elements. This time the group from “Heroes” is on the way with a controllable carriage to avert the apocalypse. Each expedition is supposed to last less than five hours, with new hero skills, items and carriage upgrades unlocking as progression elements that will be available on the next trip. On the way, the heroes develop personal likes and dislikes, which can lead to synergies in combat. And of course there are also tensions and arguments in the team. Between the fights, the heroes can relax from the tension in the village tavern. The combat system is based heavily on the predecessor, but has been improved and expanded. The graphic style doesn’t need to shy away from the comparison to its predecessor, only this time everything is much sharper and clearer. The outlines of the figures are also no longer so dominant.

Red Hook Studios estimate that the Early Access phase will last at least a year or more (depending on player feedback). The current content of the game is described as follows:

“We estimate that Darkest Dungeon II currently has about two thirds or more of the planned final game content. The structure of the game is roguelike and already fully playable: You can complete expeditions, increase your level and unlock items. The game currently has a “final boss”, nine hero classes, dozen of enemies and more than 250 items. We plan to add four more final bosses as well as additional characters, enemies and items. These numbers are not necessarily final. As this is an early access Game, it naturally contains more errors than a finished game. “
