Darkest Dungeon: The Color of Madness DLC

redhookjohn News 24 Comments

With five feeble senses we pretend to comprehend the boundlessly complex cosmos…

-HP Lovecraft

Some hateful shard of alien origin has streaked through the night sky, crashing into the old Miller’s farm on the outskirts of the Hamlet!  Those unfortunate enough to witness the Comet’s arrival have been blinded by what they can only describe as a shifting, ephemeral hue of damnably abrasive intensity.  There has been no word from the farm in a fortnight, save for the unearthly groaning that echoes from the ruin of the mill…

  • A New Quest Type: Get lost in time and space as you confront unending waves of enemies, new and old, pushing ever closer to the crash site of the Comet.  Survive as long as you can stomach, and compare your highest kill count with friends and rivals alike!
  • A New Enemy Faction: The husks of the Miller and his farmhands roam the area around the windmill, spreading the all-consuming influence of the Comet’s light.
  • Powerful New Trinkets: Visit the Nomad Wagon and spend Comet Shards to purchase trinkets with new and powerful functionality.

The team at Red Hook is thrilled to continue to support Darkest Dungeon with this latest DLC.  We’re committed to providing our new and veteran players alike with the very best in all-consuming misery and morbidity.  The Color of Madness DLC is planned for a spring release, and pricing information will follow in the new year.

Console Updates:
The Shieldbreaker DLC on PS4 and VITA
We’ve received confirmation from Playstation that our second DLC: The Shieldbreaker will be releasing on Wednesday, December 6th in both NA and EU regions. We pushed a update out a couple weeks back in preparation for the release, and now after some toil on our part to get it through certification, all our Playstation players can enjoy the new class and her slithering nightmares!

Switch: Crimson Court and Shieldbreaker will be available at release!
While we don’t have a solid release window just yet, we do want to share that all currently available DLC (The Crimson Court and The Shieldbreaker) will be available at release on Switch.

We are hard at work getting the Switch version of the game prepped for submission to Nintendo for their certification process. Once we get a build in the certification process we will have a solid idea of our possible release schedule. That being said, we are hoping for sometime early in the new year if all goes well.

What about Crimson Court and Shieldbreaker for iPad?!
Our fantastic porting partner Blitworks has begun working on porting over the DLC to iPad. So far things are looking good and we will have a update from them soon to talk about likely release schedule for that soon!

All the best this holiday season,

-The Red Hook Team

  1. Honestly I think it’s worth the wait if we can have an “all DLC ” version for the switch.
    I will personally wait to get it if I know there will be a reedition after.

  2. I really hope you guys don’t pull back the curtain too much. A great part of what makes DD a masterpiece is the unknown, the unknowable and the gaps we fill in with our own imagination. DD has always struck a very fine balance between being grounded and exploring concepts far beyond it’s tiny little hamlet. Please, don’t move away from that.

  3. Will there be a physical switch release ? If yes will this one include DLC ?
    I personally think it’s okay to wait for an “all DLC deluxe” physical switch release.

  4. Colour out of Space is my absolute favorite HP Lovecraft story and I’m beside myself to see Red Hook pay homage to it. I mean, I’ve played games with Cthulhu or whatever but this concept is really under-appreciated.
