Red Hook Studios has announced Darkest Dungeon 2, a sequel to the hit title, Darkest Dungeon.
In an interview with PC Gamer, Red Hook Studios revealed some of the features coming to the game as well as an announcement trailer. According to the developers, Darkest Dungeon 2 will see the combat system return but with a significant tune-up in terms of mechanics and presentation.
The game will also feature a completely different metagame structure, the game will be about “enduring a gruelling journey, not cleaning up your backyard.”
“In Darkest Dungeon 2, we’re giving players a glimpse of the supernatural apocalypse twisting and distorting the world beyond the estate… and that’s all we’re going to say about that for now,” the developer said.
The interview also reveals that the studio has grown since the development of Darkest Dungeon and now has 14 staff with plans to add more in the coming months.
In terms of launch, it seems Darkest Dungeon 2 will be hitting Early Access first, much like its predecessor.
