After an extended stay in Early Access, a Darkest Dungeon 2 release date has finally been revealed. Fans of the first Darkest Dungeon loved the gothic atmosphere and managing the emotions of their party, hence the excitement for its sequel.
Despite a release date being confirmed, this won’t be the final version of Darkest Dungeon 2. The developers at Red Hook made sure to announce that this is the 1.0 version of the game, meaning that more updates are coming. While that’s not the most ideal parameter for a release, it’s better than nothing.
Overall, with the roguelike genre growing in recent years, it’s easy to see why fans are excited about the Darkest Dungeon 2 release date. Though they might have to wait for more updates, the fact its developers are confident enough to release the game does ensure some quality.
When is the Darkest Dungeon 2 release date?
According to Red Hook, the Darkest Dungeon 2 release date will be on May 8th for PC.
While it was stressed that this is the 1.0 version of the game, Red Hook has promised to update the title as much as possible while it's still in Early Access.
While the emphasis on 1.0 sounds disappointing, the number of updates has ensured a good game. Many fans who have tried it on Early Access have had positive things to say about the sequel, comparing it to popular roguelikes like Slay the Spire.
In addition to the Darkest Dungeon 2 release date, Red Hook also announced a gameplay stream for February 8. Players will get to see how these new characters play and what perils they might face before May 8th comes along.
