It has been a long year since Darkest Dungeon 2 was announced, but developer Red Hook Studios is ready to talk about the game and the plans in mind.
The first bit of news is that the game is going 3D. “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 2 is packed with fresh monsters, bosses, and challenges.”
It isn’t the most detail, but knowing that more is on the way next year and that things are going 3D is pretty exciting. Judging by the trailer, things are just as gloomy as before.
This quote does make it sound pretty ambitious in scope: “Our combat system is making a return, but we’re giving it a significant tune-up—mechanically, and in terms of presentation. Most significantly, however, we are working with a completely different metagame structure. Darkest Dungeon 2 is a game about enduring a gruelling journey, not cleaning up your backyard.”
The game can be added to your wishlist on the Epic Games Store.
