Darkest Dungeon released out of Steam's Early Access program on PC earlier this year, and now those on PlayStation platforms won't have to wait much longer to play the psychological dungeon crawler, either. The turn-based roguelike hits the PS4 and Vita on September 27.
The console and handheld versions of Darkest Dungeon were delayed back in April so developer Red Hook Games could ensure the game ran "like butter and plays well with a controller." On top of that, Red Hook added a bunch of new content to the PC version, which will be available for PS4 and Vita at launch. There are now 15 hero classes to recruit from in the main town hub, in addition to over 40 unique Town Events that occur in between dungeons.
Darkest Dungeon will cost $25 when it hits PlayStation platforms, and you can get it for $20 after a 20 percent discount if you subscribe to PlayStation Plus. It supports cross-buy and cross-save functionality, so if you buy it on PS4, you can also play it on Vita and vice-versa.
Darkest Dungeon received a score of 9 in GameSpot's review. Critic Daniel Starkey concluded, "It's an extraordinary cycle that bears a special teacher--rewarding your cleverness and punishing your foolishness. It transfixes and binds you to this grand journey, dotted with failures and successes. And because you endured, because you thought your way through it, the final victory against the unimaginable evil you face at the bottom of the Darkest Dungeon is personally valuable."
