Darkest Dungeon II Extends Its Exploration to Xbox

Developer and publisher Red Hook Studios announced that it will be releasing its turn-based roguelike Darkest Dungeon II on Xbox Series X|S. The title is set to launch on the console, alongside the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch versions, on July 15, 2024. The Standard Edition will be available on the Microsoft Store for $39.99/38,99€/£33.74, while the Oblivion Edition that includes the game and The Binding Blade DLC will be priced at $44,99/44,99€/£38,49. In addition, the free content update previously announced for PC will release later this year on all platforms.

A follow-up to 2016 turn-based roguelike Darkest Dungeon, Darkest Dungeon II sees players tasked with guiding a stagecoach expedition across a decaying landscape to try and avert the apocalypse. The game features a refined version of the previous game’s combat with a new Token System. Each failed run grants resources that can be used on upgrades for future attempts. The game also includes an affinity system between party members, and players can learn more about their heroes’ backstories.

Darkest Dungeon II is available on PC (via Steam, GOG.com, and Epic Games Store), with the game and its DLC being currently discounted on Steam. Those looking to read more about the title can check out Ryan Costa’s review of its PC release.

Fascinated by the screens since I saw them, video games are a sorcery I quickly become obsessed with. This passion culminated with the discovery of the RPGs. At that time, they were likely the sole titles where story and world building mattered as much as gameplay. Now, I am writing about them, especially my favorite ones: the JRPGs!
