New bonuses for Darkest Dungeon announced ahead of its launch on PS4 & Vita

Red Hook Studios revealed today that its hit game Darkest Dungeon (which currently sits at an 84 on Metacritic for PC) will be getting a few extra bonuses when it launches for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on September 27th.

Here are all the bonuses:

  • For all our PlayStation players we now start fresh estates with two trinkets: a Stone of Patience and a Stone of Endurance, as a small way of thanking our fans for their gratitude and support and patience as we developed the game.
  • We are also adding three new, extremely rare trinkets for players to find. “The Tempting Goblet” is one such rare trinket that can be found from the now-infamous skeletal courtiers, who have a habit of dousing heroes in acrid liquid of questionable origin. To imaginative players, the other two trinkets may foreshadow a looming threat not yet made manifest…
  • We’ve taken some time to embellish each of the four main dungeons — a new background has been added to the Ruins, Weald, Warrens, and Cove, adding more variety and character to each location.
  • We’ve also added a new Town Event: “A Day Long Awaited.” In celebration of the PlayStation launch, this event gives players a Stagecoach bursting with bonus recruits — word has spread of the riches to be found in the dungeons beneath the Estate! Been waiting desperately for that Jester? This event can help it happen.

At the moment it’s unclear whether or not these bonuses will come to the PC version. It has also been re-confirmed that the game will support both cross-buy and cross-save.

In addition, Red Hook Studios also announced that the game will be discounted 20 percent for PlayStation Plus members for two weeks after its launch.

A new launch trailer was also released, you can watch it below:

My Opinion:

I loved this game on PC, and I’m going to love it even more on PS4 with trophies. This is easily one of my most anticipated releases for the remainder of the year.

  1. Darkest Dungeon is so good. I’m glad console owners are getting a chance to play it. The game is surprisingly brutal to newcomers too. Those items should help newbies out nicely.
