Red Hook Studios, Darkest Dungeon
developers, have a brief message for Xbox One players: "Darkest Dungeon
[is] coming to Xbox One on February 28th." The game, which Red Hook describes in so many words as "a challenging gothic roguelike turn-based RPG about the psychological stresses of adventuring," has already launched and been critically lauded on PC, PS4/Vita, iPad and Nintendo Switch.Darkest Dungeon
was praised for a number of features, including its Affliction System, which made party members' emotions affect gameplay, its hand-drawn art, the presence of a variety of classes from which to choose, and the game's intriguing narrator. As a roguelike, it features turn-based combat, procedurally generated dungeons and permadeath.
The short and to-the-point post
on the official Darkest Dungeon
website promises more information is coming soon. Presumably, we'll hear more about what to expect in the Xbox One version, since two DLC expansions have been released for the game since its launch.
As Red Hook has made quite clear, Darkest Dungeon
will launch for Xbox One on February 28th.
