The Crimson Court, Darkest Dungeon’s first expansion, will be out on June 19 for PC. Red Hook’s addition to the main game is going to center on the lust for blood of vampires. Many creatures will be expecting us in the Courtyard, a whole new dungeon, but a new class is joining us in battle. Our town will go through new events, but it also presents a new way to upgrade it and get bonuses in exchange with the addition of Districts.
Sadly, our brave party members will not only have to worry about new diseases and an entire faction of enemies, but they’ll also have to face The Fanatic, a wandering boss. He’s obsessed with ending The Curse once and for all, thus starting to get sickened will increase the chances for him to appear and start chasing us down. If it were not enough, maps have been further expanded with new obstacles and dangers in every corner. Prisoner cells, locked doors and even progress saves indicate that we will be spending a lot of time in them. How we prepare before entering the Courtyard will be the key for success, or our own death wish.
This first expansion promises to add a significate amount of content to the already complex base game. As for the new class, the developers are yet to announce its full details, but we can rest assure that it won’t be a Vampire Hunter. Many users started to speculate about it in the Steam Forums, but Red Hook announced that there will be more details about the DLC (including the class) before the official release: “We’ve been pretty tight-lipped on details but we’ll be revealing more information in the coming weeks including screenshots, boss teases, and a comprehensive look at the new class” said the devs on their latest announcement.
Darkest Dungeon’s DLC will be out on June 19th for the price of $9.99 USD. While it doesn’t have a pre-order option, you can add it to your wishlist from the Steam Store Page. Console versions have not been confirmed yet due to a more extense process for publishing than on PC. You can find more details on the official site, and don’t forget to say hi to the developers on Twitter.
