Darkest Dungeon II is the continuation of the warmly welcomed RPG from 2016. Just like the first part of the series, the production was developed by the independent team at Red Hook Studios.

Plot

The main theme of the plot of Darkest Dungeon II is the apocalypse, we must ensure that our team of adventurers survives the hardships of a long, exhausting journey. The adventure leads the heroes through the ice-bound and snow-covered mountain peaks. Wayne June once again plays the role of the narrator of the story.

Mechanics

The Darkest Dungeon II game is based on the mechanics which were developed for the first installment of the cycle, although the creators did not fail to introduce a number of changes. The gameplay once again revolves around wandering through grim, dark locations and watching over the psychological condition of the protagonists, who react to the terrifying experiences of the journey by accumulating stress and various phobias; if we fail to control these symptoms, e.g. by giving the adventurers a moment of rest, they may fall into paranoia or even plunge into complete madness. This is why it is worth keeping an eye on them, especially given that the death of any of them is permanent.

Skrimishes against enemies, which take place in a turn-based mode, also play an important role here. In addition to the opponents, our team also has to face the threat of numerous traps and even internal disputes.

Technical aspects

The graphics of Darkest Dungeon II have been maintained in the gloomy, dark style known from the original.
