This was my first full playthrough of Darkest Dungeon 2’s first balancing patch and was played during the Epic Games Store early access.
This patch made the game much more difficult, especially when it came to stress. It also buffed Chapter One’s final boss substantially.
GET THE GAME
At the time I am posting this Darkest Dungeon 2 is still in early access and is only available through the Epic Game Store (which I have no affiliation with).
ABOUT Darkest Dungeon 2
Gather your courage and ride out into the chaos of a world undone.
Darkest Dungeon II is a roguelike road trip of the damned. Form a party, equip your stagecoach, and set off across a decaying landscape in a last gasp attempt to avert the apocalypse. The greatest dangers you face, however, may come from within…
Roguelike Runs; Even Failure Moves You Forward
Each expedition is less than 5 hours, and progress you make opens up new hero abilities, items, and stagecoach upgrades that can be used on your next journey.
The Affinity System
As travels progress, heroes bond with each other or grate on each others’ nerves, leading to desperately needed combat synergies or journey-ending dysfunction. Manage their stress and interaction to keep the team together until the bitter end.
Face Your Failures
Uncover and experience the tragic origin stories of each hero and unlock their full potential.
From the burning Sprawl to the diseased Foetor, the road will challenge your strategies and your endurance.
Rest your weary, shell-shocked heroes at the Inn, where you can manage their stress and relationships with a variety of
diversions and delights.
Uncover and experience the tragic origin stories of the heroes.
A stylish and dynamic evolution of Darkest Dungeon’s signature art style.
