Independent Canadian studio Red Hook in the official microblog Darkest Dungeon has named the exact launch date for Early Access, Darkest Dungeon II.
Recall that Darkest Dungeon II was introduced back in February 2019 and until recently was expected to be released in Early Access during the third quarter (period from July to September) of this year.
As it became known, early access Darkest Dungeon II starts on October 26 this year exclusively on PC (Epic Games Store). The developers urge you to add the game to your wishlist – it has no price yet.
At the start of Darkest Dungeon II, there will be nine character classes (one of them new) and the first of five acts. Instead of a 40-hour campaign, the sequel will offer 5-hour runs with an overall progression and storyline.
It is also reported that Darkest Dungeon II will release outside of the Epic Games Store after the end of the Early Access period. How long it will last, Red Hook Studios has not yet said.
