Darkest Dungeon: The Color of Madness is the latest expansion to the beloved dark fantasy series, and will come crashing down to the Farmstead come June 19.

A menacing shard of alien origins has been seen streaking through the night sky and crashes upon the old Miller’s farm located in the outskirts of the Hamlet. The individuals unfortunate enough to have witnessed the Comet first-hand emerge blinded by a force they can only describe as an ephemeral hue of abrasive intensity. After a period of silence from the farmland, those surrounding it begin to hear unearthly groaning emerging from the ruin of the mill, which sparks their need to investigate the horrors that await.

Players will be able to explore a new region known as The Farmland and begin an endless quest that involves the distortion of time. Your goal is to move in as close to the Comet as possible while making your way through an army of new and familiar enemy types. The enemy faction that resides here is that of The Miller and his loyal workmen, who have become shadowy figures of their former selves. He will be one of the three new bosses available, alongside The Things From the Stars, and the Comet itself.

Four new District buildings will be added, each containing their own set of benefits, and new Quirks will be featured with all-new effects. Some unique Curio additions will keep your heroes safe as you’re fighting through seemingly endless hordes, and new trinkets will also await from the Jeweler. Be wary, though, as the new items available can no longer be exchanged for goal, and may only be traded in for Comet Shards.

You’ll be able to pick up Darkest Dungeon: The Color of Madness on PC through Steam, Humble Store (affiliate link), and GOG (affiliate link) beginning June 19. Console players can also expect an upcoming release, but no official release date has been specified just yet. If you want to learn more about Darkest Dungeon, check out our review of the game.
