The Vestal Makes a Return in Darkest Dungeon II

Darkest Dungeon II The Vestal

Red Hook Studios has announced that the Suffer No Sin update has been deployed into Darkest Dungeon II. The update brings players a host of new content but perhaps most excitingly, the patch brings one of the first game’s most popular characters back into play. The Vestal has been one of the most highly requested characters and developers heard their community loud and clear. With the addition of The Vestal, players will now have access to eleven playable heroes.

The Vestal is now a more versatile character than when she appeared in the original. She will act more as a “healer-tank” who can significantly damage an enemy’s back row. Her healing is now tied to Conviction that grows as she smites her opponents. Her entire backstory will be available at the Shrines of Reflection, where players will also go to unlock her suite of abilities.

DD2 has been in early access on EGS since last 2021. Over the intervening months, developers have released a regular cadence of major content updates. Gameplay features expand on the concepts first explored in the first game. Players will be treated to “striking 3D visuals and a new run-based road trip structure.” The latter streamlines the entire experience without any alteration in complexity.


  • Roguelike Runs, Each With Its Own Emerging Story: Each expedition lasts from 30 minutes to several hours. Even an untimely end will arm you with resources that can be spent to improve your next journey.
  • Unforgettable Heroes: Uncover and experience the tragic origin stories of each hero. Unlock their full potential via new skills, paths, items, and more.
  • The Altar of Hope: Engage with a massive system of upgrades and boons that opens up new strategies for each expedition. Choose what’s important to you as you formulate your assaults on the Mountain.
  • The Affinity System: As travels progress, heroes bond with each other or develop animosity, leading to desperately needed combat synergies or journey-ending dysfunction. Manage their stress and interaction to keep the team together until the bitter end.
  • Nightmarish Environs: From the burning Sprawl to the diseased Foetor, the long road to the Mountain will challenge your strategies and endurance. Explore five distinct regions, each with its own unique creatures and challenges.
