Everything Burns update for Darkest Dungeon is out

Everything Burns update for Darkest Dungeon is here. It adds a considerable bunch of Town Events to The Hamlet as well as numerous enhancements and fixes to the entire game.

Darkest Dungeon, a turn-based two-dimensional RPG by the independent developer Red Hook Studios, has received the Everything Burns update, adding the long-awaited Town Events that consist of “bonus recruits, extra supplies, facility closures, and more”. The developers warn the players that “The Hamlet is not as safe as it once was”, although the frequency of the aforementioned events can be adjusted in-game, unless you’re playing in the New Game Plus mode for which they are mandatory. Apart from the above, Everything Burns brings a considerable amount of various enhancements and fixes to the game. You can read the full release notes here. The update is available in all storefronts—Steam, GOG, and Mac App Store—as of today.

It is also worth mentioning that today’s update completes the stretch goal list of the game’s Kickstarter campaign. The developers are now moving on to producing physical rewards.

Darkest Dungeon was released for PC on January 19, this year, to mostly favorable reviews by both players and critics. The game scored 8.5 out of 10 in our review and was awarded the Gamepressure Staff Choice badge. The PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita versions are scheduled to arrive this summer.
