Now Playing: Darkest Dungeon: The Crimson Court - Launch Trailer

Darkest Dungeon is a grim roguelike that originally released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Vita in 2016. Critic Daniel Starkey called the game a "richly satisfying and wonderfully executed masterpiece" and awarded it a 9/10 in GameSpot's Darkest Dungeon review.

The Crimson Court is the first major expansion for the Darkest Dungeon. It previously released for existing versions and introduced a new parallel story campaign, new bosses, and more. The Shieldbreaker pack, meanwhile, added the eponymous hero class and other new content. Another expansion called The Color of Madness will also be released for all versions. Red Hook says it will share more details about that DLC "in the coming months."
