About Darkest Dungeon: The Crimson Court
Darkest Dungeon: The Crimson Court is the first expansion for the 2016 dungeon crawler RPG Darkest Dungeon. The expansion was created by indie studio Red Hook Studios, the creators of the core game. The main theme of The Crimson Court is blood. The DLC was released for many platforms, including PC, iOS and etc..
Darkest Dungeon: The Crimson Court utilizes the gameplay mechanics from the core game. You gather a party of heroes, who set out to explore the eponymous Darkest Dungeon in search for riches, which you use to expand the shabby town serving as your base. In contrast to characters in similar games, the protagonists suffer from typical human ailments. Some of them may go berserk, while others are afraid of blood or may panic when surrounded by darkness.
The game places a heavy emphasis on blood — it is a theme connecting not only the items you find, but also your enemies, of which you can find new kinds in the expansion. The Crimson Court also introduces vampires, with their own unique set of abilities.
Darkest Dungeon: The Crimson Court for PC, iOS and etc. is based on the technology created for the core game. The expansion features expressive hand-drawn visuals and an atmospheric soundtrack, as well as a narrator, who constantly comments on your actions.
