Darkest Dungeon delayed into the summer for PS4 and Vita, adding Town Events

For the first month of my 2016, my life was all about diving into the darkness of underground chasms and my own inner psyche. A sudden and sentimental trip to the farm railroaded my dungeon crawling career, but for what it’s worth, Darkest Dungeon is still one of the best indie titles you’ll play this year.

Sadly, PlayStation owners will have to wait a little bit longer. Red Hook Studios has confirmed that its game has been pushed from its spring release date into the summer on both PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.

To make up for the delay, the development team also confirmed that the port would be getting the next update’s content at launch, which will be the inclusion of Town Events. These events will trigger occasionally when your team comes back from exploring a dungeon, adding variety, dialogue, and random rewards, and most likely penalties, to the different services around town.

The update is expected for the PC version later in June or May, meaning the PlayStation versions will not be released until later in the summer. Worth the wait, guys. Be sure to check Darkest Dungeon out when you get the chance.
