I would like to ask your opinion on how many eyeballs is too many eyeballs. Is it like five eyeballs? Three? For many I think it’s eight since a spider has so many eyeballs and they don’t like spiders. Anyway, I think we can agree that the Obsession’s Gaze update for Darkest dungeon 2 (opens in new tab) has totally too many eyeballs.
As evidenced by the trailer above, there are creatures with one eyeball. Then they have different eyeballs, then a creature appears that consists almost entirely of eyeballs. Did I mention the eyeballs are really big? They are very big eyeballs.
That nasty critter is apparently a new boss in the mountain area, which has been strengthened since this update: the big addition is the Obsession Confession, which adds an entire chapter to the main storyline. Each confession is a full playthrough and victory in the game – so far we’ve had denial and resentment.
This update follows others, but feels like a big push from the September update that brought the Altar of Hope (opens in new tab) system that allows you to collect magic candles to get bonuses over time. Obsession includes new hero objectives, which are generated for each character at the starting intersection. Those objectives provide you with a great way to get new candles, as completing a hero’s random objective on each run earns candles that you keep regardless of the outcome of your doomed road trip.
You can find the patch notes for the Obsession’s Gaze update on the Darkest Dungeon website. (opens in new tab) Darkest Dungeon 2 is now available in Early Access on the Epic games store (opens in new tab)and is wishlist on Steam. (opens in new tab)
Darkest Dungeon 2 launched into Early Access last fall and has made great strides, but I’ll say that all my characters still hate each other. (opens in new tab)
