Can You Play Darkest Dungeon 2 With Friends?

Sadly the game doesn’t have a multiplayer option at this moment. It’s unambiguously marked on Steam as a Single-player game. This is in regards to both versus and co-op mode.

The game’s predecessor, Darkest Dungeon had also been launched with no multiplayer, which was added later on through a DLC called The Butcher’s Circus. This DLC gave players the opportunity to play PvP with teams of 4 heroes. So if multiplayer is a deal breaker for you, you can try playing the previous installment. Be as it may the fact that the first edition of the game had multiplayer raises our hopes that the developers will do something similar with the sequel as well.

How Can You Find Out If the Game Will Get Multiplayer in the Future?

If you want to be the first one to know whether multiplayer will be introduced we advise following the developer team from Red Hook Studios on their official channels. They have a Facebook page, Twitter profile @DarkestDungeon, Discord Server as well as a YouTube channel. We are positive that if enough members of the community push towards multiplayer it will inevitably happen.
