For fans of Darkest Dungeon, the new DLC class has now arrived for $3.99. Experience the talents of the Shieldbreaker, specialized in crippling the defenses of all enemies. She hails from the barren dunes of the east, haunted by the price she paid for emancipation. The DLC also comes with three new monsters and the Aegis Scale, a consumable to gain protection for emergencies.
To coincide with the DLC release, Red Hook Studios teamed up with Ghost Ramp for a limited vinyl collection. This double vinyl collection contains all of the music of both the base game and The Crimson Court. One can pre-order this dual set for $40. It is expected for it to ship just after New Years.
The Shieldbreaker DLC – Available Now for $3.99!
The Shieldbreaker DLC is now available on PC/Mac/Linux for $3.99 USD. (Steam and Humble Store now, GoG soon to follow, and PS4/VITA/iPad later this year.)
“And all around is the desert; a corner of the mournful kingdom of sand.”
Hailing from the distant windswept dunes of the east, the Shieldbreaker arrives in the Hamlet! Deadly as a viper, her iron will has been forged in the heat of the blazing desert sun. Though outwardly demure, her emancipation from the barren wastes came at a price so terrible, it haunts her dreams even now…
- New hero class: the Shieldbreaker
- Dynamic, tactical skill set for the Shieldbreaker featuring all new combat mechanics including: Armor Piercing, Guard Break, and Stealth
- Shieldbreaker class-specific trinkets, including a set.
- 3 New Monsters – frightful illusions from the Shieldbreaker’s origin, now slithering forward to infest the Estate
- New Consumable Item – Aegis Scale, providing a last bastion of protection for when a hero truly needs it.
The Shieldbreaker is a powerful ally in the fight to reclaim the Estate and banish the evil that squats in the Darkest Dungeon. A highly-tactical hero with solid damage dealing capability, she truly excels when countering monsters with high protection and those who guard their allies. Her movement, speed, and targeted abilities make her a valuable ally for dismantling intractable monster groups. Though relatively low health, the Shieldbreaker is yet highly survivable in short bursts thanks to her Aegis shield.
