“Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is.”
–Albert Camus

Ruin has come to our family… and the terrible task of restoring your estate to its former glory falls to you. It brings us great pleasure to finally announce the upcoming release date for Darkest Dungeon for both PS4 and PS Vita: September 27, 2016!

Darkest Dungeon is a challenging gothic turn-based dungeon crawler about the psychological stresses of adventuring. It draws heaps of inspiration from classic tabletop RPG experiences. Heroes are human, and Darkest Dungeon will push them to their very breaking points. It’s only under great duress that true heroes are born. Success isn’t guaranteed and many adventurers are likely to die along the way. However, with equal parts planning, strategy, and ruthlessness, you will conquer the horrors below!

Since we last gave an update on Playstation.Blog, we’ve added even more content to the game that will be included for release. The Stagecoach is brimming with new hero classes (15 in all!) who will find themselves at the Hamlet for redemption, glory, or fortune. More than 40 different Town Events add variety to your campaign… including a chance encounter with the nefarious Vvulf and his Bandit Raiders, who seek to destroy the Hamlet!

On September 27, we finally get to share years of hard work and passion with players on PlayStation.

The game will be $24.99 or the local equivalent, and will feature both cross-buy and cross-save support! Buy once, and share your Estate between your PS4 and your PS Vita.

PS Plus members can also expect a 20% discount off of the game.

Be sure to keep your eye on Playstation Store, and prepare yourselves, because there can be only madness… in the Darkest Dungeon!

      We are excited too! Playing it with a controller on the couch has been a real treat! Seeing it on the VITA has also been super exciting.

    • Almost never buy games until the first sale, but thanks to the Dev getting the Vita out at the same time, and with Crossbuy, I will buy this Day One. Good Job Guys!

  • HomessaHomem

    I NEED THIS IN MY VITA!

  • Thermopyle2

    Great to finally see a release announcement on this. I’m surprised (happily so) that it’s hitting Vita at the same time.

      It’s great to finally have the date out there! We’ve been working our butts off to hit a simultaneous release because its worth it for the players!

  • Nice! I have been waiting for DD to hit the Sony consoles. Cross-buy and save for the win!!

  • Sangrinolia

    FINALLY! Can’t wait to play on the PlayStation Vita!

  • I’ve been anticipating this game for a while and just want to applaud you guys for releasing your game on vita at the same time as the ps4 version.

    Delayed release of vita versions of indies is the bane of my gaming existence.

    Thanks again!!!

  • I’ve been waiting for this game for so long… but $24.99 for a game that’s already old, even with the 20% is too much. It should be $20 at most! With at least 20% for plus members. Having to wait this long for it, but that’s not for the consumers to decide the price I guess.. Still almost 2 months away.. but I’ll wait longer till it’s on sale for under $15.

    • pixelberserker

      Dude, this game is gold, 20,40,60 it worths.

    • 25 dollars is worth it, this game has lots of replay value and tons of additional content.
      for reference, abzu just came out its only 2 hours long and costs 20 dollars on PSN, this game is like 60+ hours long and costs 25.

    • Mad--Butcher

      Look, I agree with Kid_Loser, but I assure you the game is fantastic and worth every penny.

    • kyosuke9999

      With 20% off, it is $20! I wouldn’t let $5 stand between you and an awesome game.

  • Wow this has been on my radar for a while, will be playing this when it comes out. :)

  • Thank you for bringing it to the Vita. So happy to be able to get non PC player friends to finally play this

  • Ohhh nice. I have been waiting on this one for some time. Cant wait to check it out

  • AssaultMonkey150

    Later than I would have liked but will put aside some time for this even in the busy fall season

  • Looks like a cell phone game to me

    • If this actually were a mobile game, it would definitely increase the caliber of what’s supposed to be considered a mobile game.

    • pixelberserker

      Then i have to buy a cell phone, becuase this game is better than a lot of “AAA games” out there.

    • Dumb comment is dumb. :)

  • Nice! Been eyeing this on PC… that Vita release will get me to finally pull the trigger.

  • Physical release for Ps4?

  • Cross-save, cross-buy and 20% off for Plus users. Bravo! You really know what you’re doing guys. Day 1 buy from me.

  • Dragonchasers

    Great to have a release date. I’ve been tempted by the PC version so many times but have been holding out to enjoy it on my PS4. Can’t wait!

  • ThE_FalleN_HeleL

    Played this at PSX last year and had a blast! Glad to see the release date. Even with no physical, I’ll preorder as soon as it goes up. Thanks guys! Good job on the cross buy

      Thanks for playing at PSX! The controls feel so much better now, having people play it at PSX gave us a lot of great feedback.

  • So hyped for this. Thanks for making the wait worth it!

  • THANK YOU for the Vita Crossbuy. Can’t wait to get this.

  • Ronobono321

    Nice! I have been so hyped for this on Vita.

  • SWEEEEEEET!

    Really looking forward to this one. Love the cross-buy too.
    A couple questions;
    1) Has the font and small details (stats etc) been adjusted for viewing clearly without strain from the couch? (this is always the biggest failing of PC indy games that come to consoles. Even when others say they take it in to consideration, they really don’t go far enough.)
    2) Will there be updates and support going forward? Games like this really have limitless potential for growth. New areas, new enemies, etc.

      Fonts have been a major focus for us during the port. The PS4 was easier than we anticipated, we have bumped it up and tweaked contrast a bit to make things legible. Legibility is a primary objective for everyone because, just like you, we also get bummed when things are hard to read on our nice large TVs! VITA is a bit trickier but we plan on making sure that the VITA port is the best it can be and we plan on supporting the platform to the best of our ability.

      We have some cool ideas brewing for additional content, but nothing to confirm just yet!

  • NI_YA_SHA_BI

    Thank you for bring the game to VITA. You guys definitely deserve my money, day-one purchase.

  • Super pumped about this game. I have watched hours of it on twitch. The art style, writing, and Wayne June voice overs are perfect. Can’t wait. Pre ordering as soon as possible. Excellent work!

  • vanillamoose

    Thanks for the Vita support (Viva la Vita)! I’ll definitely be purchasing the Darkest Dungeon come September.

  • Can’t wait! Have been following the game since early release. Will it come with a Platinum trophy tho?

    • Please don’t let the inclusion of something inconsequential determine your purchase decision.

    • Platinum trophies matter.

    • I don’t let it sway my descison to buy. But is a added bonus if it does. Gives me something extra to try for.

  • Fantastic! However, I literally just bought it for my Mac on Steam after getting impatient for the PS4 release. :( I’d much rather play on the console. Is there any cross-buy/save between computer versions and PS4 versions? Cheers, and loving it so far.

  • I’ve had my eye on this game since the kickstarter campaign. Super excited to finally get my hands on it!

  • randomness184

    Awesome!

  • about time. good job!

  • I can’t believe this is coming to PS4. Very excited, will be buying this on the day its released to play it.

  • I’ve been eyeing this one for a long time, and I Love how many fellow Vita owners are chiming in with comments. Thank you for cross-buy, cross-save and simultaneous launch. #VitaIsLife

  • Does it have a platinum trophy?

    • John Lindvay
      John Lindvay

      Yes it will have a platinum Trophy!

    • kyosuke9999

      Glad to hear this. More developers should realize that something as simple as a full trophy set and a platinum really goes a long way.

  • YES! AWESOME! This is an immediate day 1 buy , thank you for supporting cross buy :D

  • being waiting for this a long time. Day 0 my friends!

  • Crossbuy and cross save with a plus discount at launch? What can we do for you to repay this generosity? (Besides buy it day 1 and tell all our friends… done and done…)

  • Bought this back around Xmas for 9.99 I believe. It was worth it at that price. 24.99? I’d wait for a sale…!

  • Zapp_VanDale

    Great to see it comin to PS4 and PS Vita. Hope the Text wont be to small on the Handheld. My eyes are a bit old ;)

    • Too bad Sony gave up on the Vita, I for one would drop good money on a Vita XL if there was such an option.

  • Yeah who cares about the best portable option on the market, lets wait for a sub-par VR option instead. /s

  • P.S. Funny choice of titles to post about VR in the comment section. #not really related

  • Hi, will there be subtitle translations in other languages or is it only in english ?

  • CitizenKang42

    Thank you for putting this out on cross-buy; I would probably have bought it for just the Vita, since it’s going to be a perfect game for my commutes, but getting the PS4 version to boot makes it all the sweeter!

  • thedarkdomino

    Do you have any plans for an android release?

  • HussamFelimban

    Game looks great! Will the Vita version be compatible with the PSTV?

  • Aww nuts, was hoping it would be out sooner. Very happy to hear about the new features and especially the discount, but damn that timing – you guys are going to be putting this out there literally right before Final Fantasy XV launches… my playthrough stream will have to wait quite a while :/

  • kyosuke9999

    This is very exciting news, I’ve been following your twitter for the last month waiting for this announcement to drop! I purchased the game for my macbook and have been playing a lot, but this thing belongs on my big screen and on my vita. I will be purchasing Day 1. Thanks for supporting the vita and for providing cross buy.

    If you don’t know about this game, go watch a trailer. The art style and atmosphere are incredible- it has a dark, HP Lovecraft feel, beautiful music and a narrator that really adds to the experience with well written commentary. The game just oozes personality, and in a world of hand-holding offers a true challenge to the player. I can’t wait!

  • When will this be available for Pre Order on the US Site? I see it is up on the European site.

  • Looks awesome!
