We're getting close to 2 years of release for the popular, increasingly difficult, rogue-like Darkest Dungeon. Not 2 years of a solid release, but two years of release when you combine its Early Access efforts beforehand. And in that time, Red Hook Studios has managed to shift 1 million copies of their crowdfunded hit. So what's coming in the future? Quite a lot, actually.
After commenting on how over 90% of the sales stem from the Steam Store despite the title being available on GOG, Humble and even the OSX App Store, the company's latest blog post delves deeper into what's in store for the players.
While confirming they will make another game further down the line, they're not quite done supporting Darkest Dungeon just yet. With the final Kickstarter rewards going into production soon, Red Hook Studios announced that official mod support will make it into the title in due time. Though in what capacity remains to be detailed.
So even with the first DLC pack - The Crimson Court - coming early next year, mod support should allow players to tinker around with the game's engine and keep it feeling fresh long after the developers decide to press on with a new title.
There's plenty of life left in Darkest Dungeon right now, and that doesn't seem to be changing at all in the foreseeable future. If you want to read the full blog post, head on over here. It talks about some curious merchandise plans too.
