Lash your gear to the stagecoach, fix your eyes on the horizon, and prepare to roll into Early Access in 2021!

Darkest Dungeon II is about hope, grit and determination. It reminds us that in times of crisis, we can’t wait for salvation, we have to find it ourselves – earn it, in spite of our weaknesses.

Our familiar companions band together for another journey into oblivion – this time in stylized 3d! In fact, this teaser was captured straight out of Unity, and uses the in-game character models and rendering techniques from the game itself. With a refined combat system and a whole new metagame, Darkest Dungeon II is packed with fresh monsters, bosses, and challenges.

The team at Red Hook is driving hard to the launch date, and we’ll be updating you with more details in the months to come. Follow our social media channels and the Epic Games Store Page to stay up to date.
