Darkest Dungeon has been in Steam Early Access for some time now, and it's seen a number of updates thus far, but none have been quite as big as the update they released today, which includes a host of bug fixes, UI improvements, and gameplay rebalancing.
In addition to all of this, the developers have added a ton of new features, including two new hero classes, several bosses, loot, a new building, crit heals, and the ability to sell your junk. Additionally, characters who get too stressed can suffer from heart attacks–so that's one additional thing to worry about.
Here's what's in store:
New Hero Class! Man-At-Arms
New Hero Class! Arbalest
New Ruins Boss! Gibbering Prophet
New Warens Boss! Formless Flesh
New Weald Boss! Brigand Cannon
New Loot: The Ancestor’s Trinket set. Ultra-rare items once held by the Ancestor himself – be warned, some of these trinkets are only found in the pitch dark!
New Building! Ancestor's Statue: Click the statue to open the Ancestor's Memoirs – a record of all cutscenes and boss backstories!
Heart Attacks! Don’t let your heroes get too stressed. If your stress bar fills again past affliction…it’s over.
Sell your junk! In the Trinket Inventory, hold shift to see sell back value, shift+click to sell trinkets
Crit-heals! Heal, critically!
Tons of Party Names as created by Kickstarter and Humble backers!
