For four years the gruelling dungeon-crawler Darkest Dungeon has let players suffer alone. In May new downloadable content will add a multiplayer arena where they can suffer together.
The update adds a new hamlet location called Butcher’s Circus where players can go test their resolve in a grim arena against computer-controlled enemies or other players.
PvP battles will consist of two teams made up of heroes created specifically for the mode so players don’t have to worry about some random stranger online slaying their favourite character.
Based on Red Hook’s description it also sounds like there will be a new set of gear and accessories for players to strategise character builds around as well as a ranked system to climb build up notoriety in. The studio hasn’t said if or when this update will be coming to console.
