The top-down view survival horror game launched for PC back in 2017, and its PlayStation 4 port launched on Tuesday. Thursday, “Darkwood” is coming to the Nintendo Switch. Finally, Xbox One players can enjoy the creepy game starting Friday.
A console launch trailer isn’t the only new development, as a day one patch which brings improvements to game mechanics, including throwing items like knives and molotov cocktails, releases Tuesday. The patch also has smaller bug fixes and “improves performance in indoor locations,” according to Tom Tomaszewski, head of studio at Crunching Koalas which ported “Darkwood.”
The original game took five years of development before its PC release, and was inspired by “Dark Souls,” “Fallout,” and other games. For more on “Darkwood,” be sure to check out Variety’s interview with the Acid Wizard developers.
