Darkest Dungeon 2

Developer Red Hook Studios has released the final early access update for Darkest Dungeon 2. The update, titled Redemption Road, brings changes to the game’s map traversal system, along with the addition of pets to the game.

While traversing the map, the player’s stagecoach now has more streamlined controls. The stagecoach is also now vulnerable to various hazards, and players can find armor and wheels tokens that can be used up in the course of a journey.

With these changes, Darkest Dungeon 2 now makes it more important for players to scout ahead and pick their next paths to the objectives more carefully.

Aside from changes to traversal, Darkest Dungeon 2 now also has 10 pets to unlock. Pets are more than just cosmetic additions to the game, as each pet provides what the studio describes as “expedition-defining effects”.

The Redemption Road update also brings other gameplay changes and balance adjustments, including community-requested features like changes to the Valley, and a redesign of how loathing works.

Darkest Dungeon 2 is currently available as an early access title on Epic Games Store. It is slated to exit early access on May 8. The game is also slated for a console release, the development of which will start after the PC version is out of early access.
