    Darkest Dungeon is getting an big update next week that'll be adding the 4th area to the game, leaving it only 1 area short of its final goal.



    As shown it will be largely aquatic in nature focusing on the cliff side caves to the west of the manor, and will come with balance updates now revolving around the new corpse and heart attack mechanics.

    So, anyone got any opinions on this? I'm personally looking forward to the new setting, hopefully it'll be visually different enough to freshen up the aesthetic a bit, I've no doubt it's gonna be suitably difficult given the fan demand for it to be. As for the corpse and heart attack mechanics, well I gave my crappy opinion on them in the video below (Capitalism HO!), but to be concise I'm looking forward to getting some adjustments. As it stands they feel like semi-complete mechanics.

    I bought this game yesterday and I love it. That is all.

    Not sure if this thread will last, but I really want this on my Vita ASAP.

    Man I'm tempted by this, but I don't always have the patience for hard/unforgiving games. Sometimes I do, but it depends on the game and I haven't quite worked out what the deciding factor is. Also kind of want it on Vita, so might just wait.

    I've watched a lot of this on Twitch. I really like the look of it but can't tell if I'd have the patience for a game this punishing.

    I'm also holding out for the Vita version - it seems ideal for it.

    Horribly addicted to this, despite losing my best 4 characters last night.

    As you learn the enemies and curios for each region and your characters advance, I find myself making weirder and weirder effective combinations.

    Excellent. I've been dying to play the thing, but it's the sort of game I'd rather play portable.

    Would love to get this but just got too much on both home console and handheld to play at the mo. Bah!

    So, how much of a roguelike is it? Is it procedurally generated?

    I want this so badly but I missed out on the PS+ discount when my net bombed out last night and could barely justify it even then! :(

    Started it on the tube this morning, looks absolutely excellent. Presentation, art, gameplay. And finally a game that releases with vita port done AND cross save.

    Very happy with this. And happy I paid for it a month ago so got the 20% discount too :)

    How that? It's supposedly a 50+ hours game for one playthrough, and has replay value beyond that. And it's really really awesome at what it does.
    FIFA :/

    I'll definitely pick it up asap.

    I enjoyed watching people pull their hair out as they played on pc release, as one of their main characters died.

    How's the vita port? Does it feel smooth? Long loads?

    Loading seems OK, no complaints about smoothness either. Interface is fiddly as anything though, holding down of the L or R buttons to select is weird, the inventory is a swine to access, and it's missing some button prompts. It also makes zero use of the front touch, while using the back touch. Plus it's all obviously a bit cramped. May stick to playing on the PS4, but shall give another Vita go tonight.

    Played the tutorial on Vita, performance seems good, loading times not too bad. I like what they've done with the controls and UI but this really seems like a game that could utilise the touchscreen, there's so many options, stats and icons it can be a pain to navigate around. Just being able to tap the screen to see what something is/does would be a godsend.

    I think given how much data there is on the screen, it's a very good port on vita. To be better, you really need a bigger screen. I'm really happy with it.

    However, I've got tonnes of questions about the game. I just did the first quest and I don't really get some stuff that happened. Why did abilities stop being useable for some characters turn to turn? And some abilities seem to have a minimum range but I don't see it listed in the description anywhere. ie: I could hit the back of the enemy group but not the front.

    I guess I need to hit a darkest dungeon wiki.....

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Is there cross save? Is it easy to switch back and forth between the PS4 and PSVita?

    I'm really enjoying XCOM on the vita, and this seems like it would be similarly well-suited for the handheld.

    @HisDudness yup. press square to cross save. Haven't used it yet as I've only started the game on my tube into work.
