Darkest Dungeon 2 Revealed

Darkest Dungeon 2 is in the works, developer Red Hook Studios reveals in an interview with PC Gamer, where they say this Roguelike RPG sequel will debut as an Early Access release. The news is accompanied by a teaser trailer called "The Howling End." Here's what's known at this time:

The studio isn't announcing many details beyond the game's existence and the teaser above, but did speak to us exclusively, saying that although Darkest Dungeon's combat system will be returning in a recognizable but "tuned-up" form, the studio is focused on creating a "completely different" structure for its metagame. Darkest Dungeon 2 will initially release in Early Access.

The teaser video above features six familiar character classes—the Grave Robber, Leper, Man-at-Arms, Plague Doctor, Highwayman, and Hellion—standing before a mountain range, indicating that Darkest Dungeon 2's setting could take your party over dangerous, snowy passes. The video is voiced by Wayne June—Red Hook confirmed to me that the voice of Darkest Dungeon will make a return along with the rest of its original audio contributors: composer Stuart Chatwood and SFX-crafters Power Up.

Well shit. I love the sound and graphics of Darkest Dungeon, but holy shit talk about some annoying RNG gameplay.

I'll check out the sequel and see what they've done to cater to the non-hardcore crowd, hopefully there are some more enjoyable modes.

Agreed. I'm no stranger to punishment as a challenge methodology in games but this games grind was just too much. Even in a game called Darkest Dungeon, I want to be having some sort of fun and not ending every session wishing I had played something else.

Yeah. The grind a big issue, especially since the gameplay doesn't evolve a lot. Likewise, the gameplay felt like it was based around two steps forward, one step back. I've just defeated a boss, but two of my four most experienced toons are perma-dead. The rest have 8 different phobias that I can't afford to treat. Time to start the grind all over again.

Really great game. Yeah, the RNG can be very annoying, but that pretty much makes this game.
Also love how well it works with a controller (with a little tweaking), so you can play it on the couch or in bed.

About to give up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.

I hope this new one has VR. The first one could have really benefited from that.

The land in Minecraft is flat, Minecraft simulates the Earth, ergo the Earth is flat.

I really enjoyed the first one, at least once I modified that inventory files to increase stack sizes and slightly bump up the resell value on most items.

That went a long way toward reducing the grind and I was able to get immersed in the atmosphere and story. I ended up buying all the DLC but have too many other things in the queue to fire it up again.

So is the first Darkest Dungeon merely a dim dungeon now that there is a darker dungeon?
