DARQ: Complete Edition: Lloyd Also Gets A Next-Gen Re-Release [VIDEO]

DARQ (which itself is a pun on the word dark…) joins the ever-growing list of games that are already available on the current generation but will receive a next-gen iteration as well.

Feardemic announced that DARQ, which launched in August 2019 on Steam and GOG, as well as its The Tower DLC (which launched n March), plus The Crypt DLC (which is still in development), will be re-released as DARQ: Complete Edition, and with this move, the game will get a complete console attack, as it will become available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and even the PC will see a re-release of this psychological horror.

„DARQ tells the story of Lloyd, a boy who becomes aware of the fact that he is dreaming. To Lloyd’s misfortune, the dream quickly turns into a nightmare and all attempts to wake up end in failure. While exploring the darkest corners of his subconscious, Lloyd learns how to survive the nightmare by bending the laws of physics and manipulating the fluid fabric of the dream world. Apart from gravity-defying puzzles, Lloyd will have to use stealth when nearby enemies. He has no chance of winning in an open confrontation since the creatures he will encounter are much more powerful and faster than him. Instead, he has to rely on careful planning to avoid getting detected.

[It’s a] psychological horror set in a lucid dream, relying on a slow build and creepy atmosphere rather than gore and violence |with] unique art style and detailed environment to explore. [Its] sound design [is] by Bjorn Jacobsen, known for his work on such games as Cyberpunk 2077 and Hitman. Puzzles that involve bending the laws of physics (walking on walls and ceilings), manipulating the dream world (moving things, rotating rooms), collecting and using found objects, and avoiding enemies. Hidden secrets to find (optional, for hardcore players only),” the game’s Steam page says.

DARQ: Complete Edition (as well as the base game’s The Crypt DLC!) will launch digitally in December on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One Nintendo Switch, and PC. There will also be a physical release in early 2021.
