The miniatures were painted by Seb Lavigne and are absolutely gorgeous; the level of craftsmanship that went into its production is incredible and you can easily glean that solely from the one screenshot posted above. More information on the boardgame from a new Gen Con video will be coming up soon, so watch out for that.
Red Hook Studios previously announced Darkest Dungeons is getting multiplayer DLC. Titled Butcher’s Circus, the upcoming DLC introduces PvP arena battles to the gothic roguelike turn-based RPG.
Seen in a tweet announcing the new Darkest Dungeons DLC, Butcher’s Circus will let you fight against your friends or enemies in no-holds-barred arena battles. Each team will pick a party and loadout, and climb the ranks as you attempt to take out the opposing team. You will also unlock banner components to customize your very own banner.
In other Darkest Dungeon related news, a sequel is currently in the works. Via the official Darkest Dungeon Twitter account, Red Hook Studios acknowledged that there has been a lot of silence surrounding Darkest Dungeon II. Over the past year, the studio has seemingly expanded its team to aid in the development of the sequel.
“[We’ve] been tight-lipped regarding Darkest Dungeon II, but rest assured, the team is working very hard, and the game is coming together,” said the message on Twitter. Further news on the game was then promised to come about “when the stars are right.”
If you want to brush up on your skills, Darkest Dungeon is available now for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, and PlayStation Vita. You can check out our review where Tomas Franzese said, “This game is not for everyone, but those who can handle the difficulty will love this game immensely.”
