After a stint in early access and a year of full release on PC, it’s almost time for the wonderfully grim Darkest Dungeon II to make its way to PlayStation. It’ll be landing on PS4 and PS5 (with cross-buy) on 15th July.

Darkest Dungeon II is a grim-dark roadtrip roguelike, tasking players with travelling as far as they can on a stagecoach. Along the way, they’ll come across various threats, points of interests and decisions to make, and as the player it’s your job to ensure your party survives.

That’s easier said than done, though. You don’t simply have to watch their HP in battles: you’ll have to monitor their mental wellbeing, too. You see, the world of Darkest Dungeon II is a terrible and woeful place to be, and it won’t take much for your party to succumb to madness.

Described by its developers as a “roguelike turn-based trip of the damned”, you’ll find yourself starting over in Darkest Dungeon II again and again. But with permanent upgrades to unlock and experience to gain each time you head out on the road, not all hope is lost. You’ll be setting out on a very tough journey, but each time things will get just that bit easier as you familiarise yourself with its intriguing but terrible world.

Unfortunately, there’s no word of an Xbox or Switch release just yet, but PlayStation owners won’t have to wait too much longer. Darkest Dungeon II — and its DLC pack ‘The Binding Blade’ — will be available on PS4 and PS5 from 15th July. Digital pre-orders are live from today, with a 15% discount offered for PS Plus members.
