It’s time to get evil – Dungeons 2 is coming to PS4

Become the ultimate Dungeon Lord in Realmforge’s strategy epic

Hi everyone, this is Christian Schlütter, lead producer for Dungeons 2 at Kalypso Media. On behalf of Kalypso and the developers at Realmforge, I would like to take this opportunity to confirm that the dungeon management simulation Dungeons 2 is coming to console and, most importantly, exclusively for PlayStation 4!

What it’s about

Dungeons 2 isn’t about being a nice guy. It’s about becoming a Dungeon Lord so evil that goodness quakes in its boots. The campaign begins with the Dungeon Lord cursed into a half-life between this world and the next and bonded to his throne. Luckily, one can’t keep evil down forever! With the ethereal ‘Hand of Terror,’ you take direct control over your fledgling army of worker Snots as you begin to restore your evil dominance.


Building out your dungeon, you will gain experience and gather gold, allowing you to enlist more and stronger creatures to do your bidding. Soon, your range of minions will expand to include beer-drinking Orcs, Goblin assassins, and boulder-throwing Trolls.

Eventually you will send your army of destruction to the ready-to-be-conquered Overworld. This is where Dungeons 2 switches from dungeon management to traditional RTS gameplay. Managing dungeons while restoring evil across the land are two fulltime jobs, and a successful Dungeon Lord needs to find the perfect balance between underground dungeon management and above-ground RTS.

The Dungeon Lord does have a lot of skills and utilities to ensure a proper working dungeon. Multiple types of rooms can be built to keep the gold and supplies flowing. Naga can mine mana to craft defensive and offensive spells, whereas Goblins are pretty crafty and can build brutal dungeon traps for when bold humans enter looking for gold and glory. Nothing says “keep out” like an exploding treasure chest to the face.



What you can expect

At its core, Dungeons 2 takes the best influences of the dungeon management genre and blends them together for the ultimate dungeon sim experience. Yet on top of that we decided to go beyond the dungeon and incorporate the Overworld, where you command your forces in RTS fashion.

Both the RTS and the dungeon sim elements are happening in real time so a perfect Dungeon Lord must be skilled in balancing between expanding their dungeon and controlling their Overworld forces. It isn’t easy and it may take a few tries to find your rhythm, but once you do, you’ll enjoy the sweet, sweet taste of evil triumphing over good and the sight of the goody-good lands of the alliance switching from lush green fields to dark swamps of terror.

And once you have recovered to full vicious strength by completing the extensive campaign, prepare to battle other Dungeon Lords in multiplayer!


We can confirm here today on the blog that the PS4 version will be more than just the original game. Included on disc and in download, Dungeons 2 will come packed with DLC content. Right from the start, the ‘A Chance of Dragons,’ ‘A Song of Sand and Fire,’ and ‘A Clash of Pumpkins’ DLC content will be playable, as well as the ‘Morningwood’ and ‘Pixie Village’ maps, previously only available through pre-order editions.

Each DLC pack adds three unique skirmish maps, adding tons of hours of gameplay to the PS4 version. All we can say is that the Dungeon Lord is pleased with this ultimate version of Dungeons 2 for PS4 and hopes that you will summon your inner evil when it launches on 22nd April.


Did you enjoy this?

Nice to see the spirit of Dungeon Keeper still lives on in other games since EA sullied that series with it’s greedy mobile game.
