Darkest Dungeon is a challenging gothic roguelike turn-based RPG about the psychological stresses of adventuring.

Recruit, train, and lead a team of flawed heroes through twisted forests, forgotten warrens, ruined crypts, and beyond. You'll battle not only unimaginable foes, but stress, famine, disease, and the ever-encroaching dark. Uncover strange mysteries, and pit the heroes against an array of fearsome monsters with an innovative strategic turn-based combat system.

Features:

  • The Affliction System – battle not only monsters, but stress! Contend with paranoia, masochism, fear, irrationality, and a host of gameplay-meaningful quirks!
  • Striking hand-drawn gothic crowquill art style
  • Innovative turn-based combat pits you against a host of diabolical monsters
  • Narration system to celebrate your successes...and failures
  • 16 (and counting!) playable hero classes, including Plague Doctor, Hellion, and even the Leper!
  • Camp to heal wounds or deliver inspiring speeches.
  • Rest your weary, shell-shocked characters in town at the Tavern or the Abbey to keep their stress in check.
  • Classic CRPG and roguelike features, including character permadeath, procedural dungeons, and incredible replay

Can you stem the tide of eldritch horrors erupting across your family’s ancestral estate?

Released 18 Jan 2018

DLC details
$11.49*

"THE BLOOD...I MUST HAVE THE BLOOD!"

Darkest Dungeon®: The Crimson Court is the first expansion for the award-winning grim and gothic RPG by Red Hook Studios. Crimson Court is a parallel campaign experienced alongside the main Darkest Dungeon content that will provide you with new challenges and variation at every difficulty level. The narrative grounding sheds some light on the Ancestor’s early days, and will be presented in the same style of cut-scenes you’ve seen elsewhere in the game.

The DLC is designed to be played alongside an existing campaign, or as a brand new one--your choice! The events and features will unlock over the course of play

Features:

  • A new hero class. "Awash in blood and delusion, they bear the burden of a thousand lifetimes."
  • A new dungeon region: The Courtyard
  • A full faction of new deadly foes
  • 5 new Bosses with some of the most complex and devious mechanics yet.
  • A new wandering boss: The Fanatic
  • Districts: 10 new buildings to upgrade your Hamlet
  • Massive, sprawling maps with locked doors, prisoner rooms, and progress saves
  • Lore-driven trinket sets for all heroes - with set bonuses!

Darkest Dungeon: The Shieldbreaker

Released 18 Jan 2018

DLC details
$4.95*

The Shieldbreaker is a powerful ally in the fight to reclaim the Estate and banish the evil that squats in the Darkest Dungeon. A highly-tactical and solid damage dealing hero, she truly excels when countering monsters with high protection and those who guard their allies. Her movement, speed, and targeted abilities make her a valuable ally for dismantling intractable monster groups. Though relatively low health, the Shieldbreaker is yet highly survivable in short bursts thanks to her Aegis scales.

Features:

  • New hero class: the Shieldbreaker
  • Shieldbreaker class-specific trinkets, including a lore set
  • 3 New Monsters - frightful illusions from the Shieldbreaker's origin, now slithering forward to infest the Estate
  • New Consumable Item - Aegis Scale, providing a last bastion of protection for when a hero truly needs it.
