Darkest Dungeon Hits PS4 and PS Vita 9/27 with Rare New Trinkets

“The world changes, we do not, therein lies the irony that kills us.”
-Anne Rice

Darkest Dungeon launches on PS4 and PS Vita September 27 with cross buy and cross save features for all.

We’re extremely excited to share the game with the PlayStation community, and have snuck in a few bonuses to help make the console version of Darkest Dungeon something special.

Darkest Dungeon Hits PS4 and PS Vita 9/27 with Rare New Trinkets

Objects of power are vital to player success, and in Darkest Dungeon we call them trinkets. Trinkets come in many forms — from conventional stones, herbs, necklaces, and bracers on up to holy scrolls, nefarious potions, bunches of garlic, and occult symbols teaming with ethereal energies.

Their potencies vary, but as a rule they mean to empower your characters. Like everything in Darkest Dungeon, however, each comes with a cost. While a trinket may increase the damaging potency against protean evils, it may also increase the susceptibility to maladies that wait in the cold darkness.

  • 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.

To celebrate the launch, we’re offering a 20% PlayStation Plus discount for two weeks, for both PS4 and PS Vita!

We’re looking forward to hearing the tales of triumph and defeat from our new players! We have a wonderful community of players on our subreddit, and our website. Also, please feel free to reach out to us on social media with any and all comments.

On September 27, remember to pack a shovel and keep your torch bright! There are horrors below…

  • Glad to see this finally hitting consoles. Will it be $24.99 like the Steam version or a different price?

    How did the Vita version turn out? Did you have to downscale much from PC/PS4?

  • Hey guys, have been waiting for this! Congrats on it coming to Vita/PS4. I’m wondering- is the Musketeer class in these versions too by chance? I’m guessing not since you didn’t indicate so, but still asking just in case. :)

  • Thanks for the Vita love <3

  • PlayStation TV Support?

  • Is this title going to be cross play or do I have to buy it twice if I want it for PS4 and vita?

  • FINALLY! I’ve played a little on PC, but was waiting the PlayStation Vita version!

  • I bought it on my Mac. I’ll be buying it again for Vita. I’ll be taking my despair to go, please!

  • I’ve put 145 hours into the Steam version of this game, but I’ve still not beaten it. Would love to finish it on my PS4. Oh well.

    In any case, GREAT game.

  • Yessss can’t wait to play this on vita! thanks for bringing it over!!

  • A friend of mine told me its a must buy, he’s played it a lot on Steam. Glad I waited for the PS4 version.

  • Hm, it’s still not up in the PS Store.

    I played this on my Mac, absolutely loved it, but didn’t finish it – I intend to give it another go on my PS4.

    Any chance we could get a theme or some avatars for this?

  • Also: the narration on this game is second to none. It’s amazing.

    “He’ll be laughing still… at the end.”

  • Easily the most anticipated game of the year. My only fear is that the font and UI has been developed for PC. Hopefully they’ve taken the time to play it with a controller on a tv, sitting at a distance and not only 2 ft in front of their computer screens. Also, price???

    • This is something we’ve worked really hard on ensuring that it was legible on both devices. The PS4 version looks great even on my smaller 32″

  • Awesome! I’ve been looking forward to this game for a while now :)

  • Day 1 purchase; this was one of my favorite PC games of the past year. Thank you for supporting cross-buy and cross-play!! Can’t wait to play this one on the go on Vita

  • i would preorder already but i cant! ill buy it day 1 instead lol

  • @ John Lindvay

    Platin Trophy?

  • Darkest Dungeon, I’ve been waiting for you…You and I belong together. I’m going to caress your every curve. I’m going to dominate you. I’m going to destroy you. You are mine, and you will never forget my name.

  • Cross buy? VITA? what Dark sorcery is this, that is making my money fly towards the screen?

  • YES!!! About time!!!!

  • Can we preorder the game now?

    • Pre-order was only available for European PSN. Don’t worry all North American PS+ members will have 20% off for the first two weeks.

  • How much will it cost? So I can make sure I have enough for Day 1.

    • It’s 24.99 on Steam. That’s probably the PSN price as well. With the 20% of for PS+ member, it would be $19.99. That’s if it’s the price of Steam tho.

    • @AncLEoniX
      Thanks for the reply AncLEoniX.

      Will be sure to have at least $25 in my wallet after this(hopefully) Flash Sale weekend.

  • This is all that I wanted for many months. Thanks!

  • Just wondering, If I Pre ordered It before It was discounted, I still paid the full price?

  • This made me update my PS-Vita to latest firmware. Seems like the perfect game to play on Vita to me.

  • Anne Rice quite, nice. They’re remaking Interview with a Vampire.

    I completely spaced this coming out on the 27th. Been looking forward to Xcom 2 so long I just forgot! Day one buy though! Been waiting a while for this and it is a dang masterpiece! Good thing I’m on vacation after next week. WOOT!

  • This is a good game, it is also a PSV platform, too surprising, so that it can be portable.

  • Keep the Vita alive!

  • Hi!!! i had actually been Hype for this game for a long, LONG time ( and not, i am not the kind that gets hyped and then disappointed, i always control my Hype)

    But i have a question, will players that are used to play difficult games gonna be able to have some kind of control in Darkest Dudgeon? or no matter what it will eat you alive and thrash you hard? I really look forward to buying it and playing it but i am a little wary cause some ppl say it is way too hard. Like, you get so destroyed you literally feel hopeless.(Which sounds Cool!!!)

    Is there a learning curve? or is it more like, “send them down boys! call me back when 1 or a half of one of the group is back!”

    I also love how original the game is, the setting and the art of the game, so congratulations for launching on PS4!!!

    Oh, will this game have a platinum trophy or not? not a buy factor, just want to know.

  • I’m super excited for this to come out tomorrow. I’ve played the crap out of this on Steam, so have been very glad to hear about its launch on console. Curious to see how the controls translate over.

  • Hi. Played this game on the PC. No asian psn release yet? The game is not available on Asian PS Store

  • Bought this game day one, have been enjoying it quite a bit. My only wish was that the font and icons were just slightly bigger on the screen, particularly for the Vita version. I practically have to squint to see the currency icons around the edges of the screen when I go back to town.
