Developed by Red Hook Studios in 2016, Darkest Dungeon PC is a sensation with players. This dark turn-based roguelike RPG is favorable because of the awesome classes and challenging gothic aesthetic. Especially, the ‘stress’ system or affliction system helps Darkest Dungeon stands out among other RPG games. It brings special strategic feelings to gamers. You and your teammates could be distressed by a variety of psychological problems, which directly influences their performance in fights.

At first, Darkest Dungeon was launched on Steam Early Access, for PC. After nearly a year, it hit the PlayStation  (including PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita). Then, there was an iPad version in 2017 named Darkest Dungeon: Tablet Edition, and Xbox One, Nintendo Switch’s ports in 2018.

Even though the principal information about the game hasn’t been revealed yet, the studio spoke exclusively that, Darkest Dungeon 2 will first release the sequel on Steam Early Access, then consider publishing a complete release base on early players’ feedbacks.  The combat system represented on the first version is going to return too but will have a ‘tune-up’, so that this time, it will totally different in metagame structure.

The platform of Darkest Dungeon 2 was not officially mentioned, so we could consider PC as a safe bet. Still, fans of the game agreed that the mobile version would be the most suitable platform, as they have experienced it for a time. But then, in 2017, Darkest Dungeon iPad version arrived with concessions. The aspect proportion didn’t match iPad’s full screen as the result of assets that Red Hook Studio originally created. iPad players then had to cope with black edges on the screen. The same situation happened with the iPhone version; the UI features were not created to fit such undersized screens. Also, redoing them completely for the iPhone would cost too much. Hopefully these bugs will be addressed with the sequel. In near future, we are looking forward to having Darkest Dungeon 2 on mobile.
