What platforms can you download Dark and Darker on?
Currently, the only available means to play this game is via a PC using Steam. Without Steam, or a PC, you won’t be able to join in the fun. The developers have actively stated that releasing the full game on console is in the pipeline in the not-so-distant future, so if you’re a diehard console player, you may have a chance to experience the dark dungeons of Dark and Darker at some point.
What dates Are the Dark and Darker Playtests live?
We’ve luckily had a couple of playtests this month already. However, it’s highly likely there will be frequent playtests/beta events throughout the year, so it’s best to keep an eye on the official developer social pages to stay in the loop. The game is due to be released in Q3 of 2023, so plenty of scope for extra playtests.
