New Darkest Dungeon Footage Reveals Boss Fight

With Darkest Dungeon due to launch soon, more in-depth gameplay videos showcasing its features have begun to appear. The latest of those is one recorded by PC Gamer’s EIC Evan Lahti, who spends most of the video battling one of the game’s bosses.

The video, which has his party fighting the “wizened hag”, shows how stress levels can affect your party and the ease at which you can be stuffed into a fat lady’s bubbling cauldron.

Having made its kickstarter goal in only one day, Darkest Dungeon is one of the most anticipated RPGs of the year and looks to be the kind of unforgiving dungeon crawler that fans have been wanting more of on the PC platform. With it’s appealing art style and emphasis on recreating the psychological terror one would experience while fighting hellish monstrosities, it reminds me of a 2D version of Paper Sorcerer.

Red Hook Studios’ Darkest Dungeon will be stuffing your cleric into its bubbling stew this upcoming February 3rd.

    OK, the stress mechanic is cool, but I sure hope we can do something to put it under a little bit more of control. See your whole party just lose it in the middle of a boos fight in a “rogue-like” will not be good at all.
