Red Hook Studios has announced its challenging gothic roguelike RPG, Darkest Dungeon, will finally make its way out of the dungeons of Steam Early Access on January 19, 2016.

Darkest Dungeon was originally aimed to be released in October, but with the unfortunate passing of a family member of Red Hook Studios’ creative director and artist Chris Bourassa, its release had to be pushed back to early next year.

Darkest Dungeon will continue to receive regular content updates, such as an interim patch towards the end of November that will introduce a new playable hero, The Abomination, two backer-designed monsters, hotfixes, and additional content. More details on The Abomination and everything we can expect from the late-November patch will be revealed in the coming weeks.

We highlighted Darkest Dungeon in an episode of Indie Shoutout earlier this year and have been keeping a close eye on the game’s development. We spoke to Red Hook Studios at PAX 2015 about the game’s latest dungeon, The Cove, and we continue to help guide wary warriors with our tips on how to survive the game as well as defeat the Siren.
