[Update]: Darkest Dungeon 2 will be leaving Early Access and launching onto Steam and Epic on May 8, 2023.

If you're in the mood for watching scores of noble heroes slowly get reduced to gibbering madmen, rejoice as Darkest Dungeon 2 is nearly upon us! Well, sort of. According to the latest announcement, the unfinished version of Darkest Dungeon 2 will be heading into Early Access on October 26, 2021 via the Epic Games Store.

The exact details are still few and far between, but you can expect to see a variety of improvements to the first game's themes and ideas, as well as a completely different progression system. Perhaps most interestingly of all, Darkest Dungeon 2 will be ditching the stylish 2D visuals that made the original so popular, and instead try its hand at recreating that same sort of magic in 3D!

How exactly all of this will look like in action, that you can get a little bit of a sneak peek at through one of the earliest teaser trailers:

Once Darkest Dungeon 2 goes live I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, I'm afraid all we can do is sit and wait patiently for more information.
