During today's AG French Direct livestream, it was announced that co-op roguelite Darksburg will be leaving Steam Early Access on September 23rd. We got a glimpse of some of the game's high-octane horde-slaying gameplay as well as its unique procedurally-generated city.

Darksburg is described by its developer Shiro Games as a co-op roguelite in which you must escape a procedurally generated medieval city full of the undead. You'll assume the role of one of several Survivors, each of whom has unique skills and perks so you can craft your own build. This being a procedurally-generated game, each run is completely unique. You can check out a gameplay trailer for Darksburg right here:

The entire titular city of Darksburg will change completely from run to run, as will the loot it contains, so you'll never be able to memorize the layout. That being said, there will be lots of unique locations to explore, each with a diverse range of objectives, items, and enemies to deal with. Naturally, you'll be able to grab a friend to help you navigate the dark, winding streets of Darksburg, too. Each time you or your buddy level up, you'll be able to choose from three different perks, meaning you can customize your build on every run.

You can grab Darksburg right now via Steam Early Access, but it'll launch in full on September 23rd. No word yet on whether the game will also be coming to consoles. We'll keep you posted.

Are you looking forward to exploring the cursed city of Darksburg and looting it for all it's worth? Let us know in the comments below!
