Darkest Dungeon developer Red Hook Studios has sent along word that a new patch is rolling out for Darkest Dungeon. The update fixes bugs as well as a few Switch-specific issues.

Below are the full patch notes:

Darkest Dungeon saw a physical version earlier this year. Now thanks to Merge Games, the game will be receiving a collector’s edition in two types.

The regular collector’s edition appears to just be the game with all DLC. Downloadable content includes The Shield Breaker, The Color of Madness, The Crimson Court, and The Musketeer.

There will also be a Signature Edition for the collector’s edition, which includes:

Darkest Dungeon: The Color of Madness will launch on October 11, Red Hook Studios has announced. On the same day, The Musketeer DLC will be released for free along with the large game balance patch that has been live for the PC version of the game since June. Note that there is a slight change that the physical version of Darkest Dungeon will take a bit longer for the DLC to be available.

Darkest Dungeon: The Color of Madness will cost $4.99. Those who purchased the physical Darkest Dungeon: Ancestral Edition will receive the DLC for free in addition to The Musketeer and game balance update as a single large patch. It won’t be offered for free if you purchased the digital Ancestral bundle before October 11, but after that date, the package will include all currently available Darkest Dungeon content for $39.99.

Switch will be discounting all Darkest Dungeon products except for The Color of Madness for two weeks starting October 11. The Ancestral Edition bundle will cost $29.99, down from $39.99.

PC Gamer recently spoke with a few different developers to see how indie games on Switch compare to Steam. Tyler Sigman of Darkest Dungeon developer Red Hook Studios, Tommy Refenes of Super Meat Boy developer Team Meat, and Brjann Sigurgeirsson of SteamWorld Dig 2 developer Image & Form all weighed in.

One of the big topics discussed for the feature was Switch sales. All three of these developers commented on how well their games have sold on the eShop.

Darkest Dungeon

Darkest Dungeon arrived on Switch last week. Before you dive into the Crimson Court DLC, you should be aware that it can’t be completed as things stand now.

The bug here is that The Courtyard dungeon starts over from the beginning when players leave and later return. Because of its difficulty and the fact that this particular dungeon was designed for players to make multiple trips, it’s essentially impossible to finish. That’s on top of a gameplay element involving a disease that spreads among your party if they don’t defeat bosses in the Courtyard.

Fortunately, Red Hook Studios is on the case, and a patch has already been submitted to Nintendo. The company has confirmed that the update will also address a problem relating to the controls.
