Remember that the first Darkest Dungeon has established itself as one of the most complex RPGs ever created in recent years, gaining a large number of fans (thanks also to the gloomy and dark atmospheres that refer to those of the short stories by HP Lovecraft ).
In our review of the original title, by Gianluca Arena, we explained to you that «in a generation that abuses remasters, the similarity of the hardware of PS4 and Xbox One to personal computers, which allows us to enjoy niche products like this, which would otherwise have remained confined to the PC market, represents an opportunity to be exploited, especially when the games are of the quality, difficulty and depth of the latest Red Hook Studios effort. “
Darkest Dungeon 2 is expected in Early Access in 2021, currently only confirmed on PC.
