Red Hook Studios has officially announced that their critically acclaimed turn-based RPG, Darkest Dungeon II, will launch on Xbox Series X|S on July 15, 2024. This release completes the console lineup for the game, which will also be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch. The Xbox version will include all current updates and downloadable content (DLC). Players can pre-order the game now from the Microsoft Store for $49.99 CAD with a 15% discount for early purchasers.

The Xbox release will also feature the DLC “The Binding Blade,” which will be available for purchase. Additionally, players can opt for the Oblivion bundle, which includes both the base game and the DLC. Key features of the DLC update include the addition of two new playable heroes, The Duelist and The Crusader, and a new roaming mini-boss, The Warlord. A significant new campaign mode, “Kingdoms,” is set to arrive later this year as a free update. This mode challenges players to race against time to defeat a monstrous threat before it destroys the Kingdom.

Darkest Dungeon II offers players a harrowing journey through five “Confessions” campaigns, each featuring unique bosses and challenging mechanics. Including The Duelist and The Crusader, the game now boasts a roster of 14 playable heroes. Other notable features include:

  • The extensive metagame progression hub.
  • “The Altar of Hope.”
  • Ten companion pets with unique abilities.
  • Optional difficulty modifiers are the Radiant and Infernal Flame items for those seeking different challenge levels.

The game will be available on Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 on July 15, 2024. The PC version is also currently part of the Steam Summer Sale, offering 40% off the main game and the original soundtrack and a 10% discount on The Binding Blade DLC.

About Darkest Dungeon II
Darkest Dungeon II is a rogue-lite, turn-based road trip of the damned. Players form a party, equip their stagecoach, and set off across a decaying landscape in a desperate quest to avert an apocalypse caused by their failures. The greatest dangers, however, may come from within the group itself.

The sequel to the critically acclaimed Darkest Dungeon features new 3D visuals, a run-based road trip structure, an enhanced turn-based combat system, 14 playable heroes, five regions, five end bosses, and a metagame hub (“The Altar of Hope”) with extensive, persistent upgrades. The game first entered Early Access on the Epic Games Store in October 2021 and has received regular updates and improvements based on player feedback. The first DLC, The Binding Blade, was released on December 11, 2023.
