According to the game’s description on Epic Games Store:
The eagerly awaited follow-up to Red Hook’s smash hit gothic horror RPG! DDII will test your mettle and drive you to the brink of madness. Armor yourself with purpose and provision your party for the journey ahead. It will be arduous.

The original Darkest Dungeon first came to both PC and Mac back in January 2016. Since then, it became renowned for its punishing gameplay, inspiring many other dungeon crawlers to follow in its footsteps. Darkest Dungeon 2 will tweak its predecessor’s 2D art style for a 3D one. It will also bring back the game’s iconic narrator, Wayne June.
