Darkest Dungeon 2 is the sequel to one of the darkest and most oppressive video games I’ve ever played. The original game doesn’t seem to care much whether you succeed or fail. Instead, it forces you to meet its challenge or go home. While we still don’t know too much about the sequel, today the team at Red Hook Studios announced its coming to early access via the Epic Game Store sometime next year. Give the gritty teaser a watch below.

Again, this teaser doesn’t give us more info than the early access release date. That said, the short trailer does, at the very least, give us even more of those darkly gorgeous Darkest Dungeon 2 visuals. And really, I’m not sure if fans of the original need to be convinced that the sequel is going to be great. The community already loved the first one; they just need to do even more of that.

Plus, it’s not like Red Hook isn’t busy. Heck, they just launched a Kickstarter for the board game version of Darkest Dungeon. As of this writing, that game has already cleared $1 million with two weeks to go. I doubt it hits Frosthaven heights, but that’s a massive success for Red Hook and their partners at Mythic Games.

Either way, we don’t have to wait too much longer to see what Red Hook has cooking for Darkest Dungeon 2. The early access comes to PC via the Epic Game Store in 2021. Until then, play the original if you haven’t. I highly recommend it.
