Darkest Dungeon the rogue like RPG, which garnered critical acclaim on the PC market will now be releasing on the PS4 and Vita this month.
Darkest Dungeon releases on 27 September 2016 for the PS4 and PS Vita.
Darkest Dungeon has the player manage a roster of heroes to explore dungeons below a gothic mansion the player has inherited. Played out in a mix of real-time movement and turn-based combat, a core feature of Darkest Dungeon is the stress level of each hero that increases with further exploration and combat; a character sustaining a high stress level may gain afflictions that will hamper, or possibly enhance, their performance as an explorer. This concept was drawn into the game by the developer based on film characters that suffer from the traumas of combat stress such as from Aliens or Band of Brothers.
At the outset of Darkest Dungeon, the player learns that they have inherited an estate from a relative who, while seeking fame and fortune by excavating the dungeons and catacombs beneath their manor, has unearthed portals to dark dimensions and released a number of horrific and evil creatures onto the world. Cowardly, the relative took his own life rather than deal with his mistake. As the current owner of the estate and the surrounding lands, the player must recruit a roster of adventurers and mount expeditions to cleanse the estate of its vile inhabitants.
I tried out Darkest Dungeon on the PC, and was absolutely smitten by it, so I will suggest everyone who I can to get this game, atleast on the Vita.
