Darkest Dungeon getting physical release on PS4 and Switch

‘Ancestral Edition’ features more dark and more dungeon

Publisher Merge Games and developers Red Hook Studios have announced that tough-as-nails strategy title Darkest Dungeon will be getting a physical release this Spring.

The turn-based battle title will be released on high street shelves for PS4 and Nintendo Switch as Darkest Dungeon: Ancestral Edition. This retail version of the 2016 title will include DLC expansions The Crimson Court and The Shieldbreaker.

“Many fans have been clamouring for a physical edition of the game”, said Red Hook Co-President, Tyler Sigman. “Merge Games was the right partner to help us get this done! We’re thrilled for people to have the option to buy a retail box…and we’re going to be keeping a few copies in our personal libraries, too!”

In other news, Red Hook Studios are continuing to work on a fix to an unfortunate bug that is rendering the Switch edition of The Crimson Court unbeatable. Said fix has been submitted to Nintendo and should be rolled out soon.

Darkest Dungeon: Ancestral Edition launches on PS4 and Nintendo Switch in March.
