Red Hook Studios’ nightmarish roguelike, Darkest Dungeon, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Vita in 2016, according to the game’s community manager, John Lindvay. Lindvay made the announcement in a post on the official PlayStation blog, saying also that those attending the PlayStation Experience event in San Francisco this December will have the chance to play it early.

We’ve been working on Darkest Dungeon since April 2013. And coming up this December, a major milestone is happening: for the first time ever we’ll be showing Darkest Dungeon running on PS4! Seeing your game running on a console is a big deal for any developer, and we couldn’t be more excited. We’ve always been proud of our game’s visuals, but seeing it on a large TV… it’s never looked better.

Taking nods from games like Dark Souls with its light management system, Darkest Dungeon sets itself apart from other roguelikes, Lindvay says, by exploring the psychological toll such nightmarish adventures would have on the human psyche were they to survive such ordeals.

We’ve all played dungeon crawlers before, but have you ever had your fighter go on a bender to cope with the horrors he’s witnessed in the darkness? Darkest Dungeon deals with the psychological toll adventurers endure as they brave the nightmarish horrors of the pit. This December, Darkest Dungeon will be coming to PlayStation Experience.

Darkest Dungeon is currently in early access, with a full release scheduled for January 16, 2016 on PC. The PlayStation 4 and Vita versions are yet to be given a firm release date.
