The folks at Red Hook have revealed the next downloadable content coming to Darkest Dungeon. Following the vampire-themed Crimson Court, we're getting an expansion that might have an extra-terrestrial bent. It's called The Color of Madness.
"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," said Red Hook in its synopsis of the event.
There's a new quest type that sounds like an endless PVE rush, promising that players will "get lost in time and space as you confront unending waves of enemies." There's a new enemy faction in the form of the mill's workers spreading the Comet's taint. The Color of Madness also offers new trinkets from the Nomad Wagon.
The Color of Madness is planned for a spring release.
In addition to news about the DLC, Red Hook offered updates on the Darkest Dungeon ports. The Shieldbreaker DLC will be coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on December 6. The iPad release will be seeing both DLC releases, but Red Hook doesn't have a timetable yet. Finally, the Nintendo Switch version of the game is still in the works and will offer The Crimson Court and The Shieldbreaker DLC at launch.
"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," said Red Hook.
