    There is plenty of that for sure, but there are many classes that are legit - Ronin and Conquistador being good examples.

    Not having old Chibis is a decline then. It looks way less stylish than the previous game and lost it's grim comicbook-ish look.

    Crusader will probably be some enemy/boss because whooooaaaa did you know the CHURCH and those of FAITH can be easily CORRUPTED? So new and cool. Never thought of that one.

    How the fuck are they going to ship this game without Crusader and Vestal? I blame Epic Games, Covid, and rusty.

    They will add more before the actual release. 9 heroes shown are early access material.

    Also game will release on Steam right after exiting early access, for those who were mad about Epic store.

    One of the newer trends I've noticed in these games that do a gothic or dark fantasy approach is trying to deny the warrior of light archetype being the posterboy or being in the game to begin with. Take Diablo for example, they've made their token melee hero the Barbarian. It's a game where you fight the Devil and if you thought of a knight-in-shining-armor then you're wrong because it's actually some fat muscled mountain man that will deliver us all.

    It's coming to the point where making a game that plays it straight with a Good vs. Evil angle is going to be more original than the hundred attempts to shake things up needlessly.

    Didn't I destroy your spiderweb so you can make a new one again? Or was that last week?

    I forgot Redhook took the Sweeny Weenie, basically guarantees it will be severely lacking.

    This feels like a shitty fangame.
    I didn’t even like DD1 that much and I still feel disappointed.

    I did like it and I am disappointed too, because so far they don't seem to be innovating enough. Most of what I can see is some fancy new coat of paint and while I admit it is fancy, I am more interested in spicing up the gameplay, because there is a lot that could be improved from Darkest Dungeon 1.

    Leftard attempts at being subversive while in reality simply indulging in their hangups and grudges.

    And they very much are leftards, considering the stronk womyn and nigs in DD1.

    Crusader is probably the one who died in the battle with the Heart of Darkness.
    His helmet is on the poster, in the lower right corner. R.I.P.

    It's just his helmet so it's possible that he could've fallen (aka become corrupted) and you will have to fight him.

    Just like the first one I like the visual direction and art style most. It seems fairly similar to it overall, i'll probablly get it at a discount if ever, the RNG can be infuriating in the but for some reason it doesn't keep pulling me back like BB.

    White Male Crusader saving everyone? In this day and age?

    hey, the crusader's got a helmet covering all his face and wears gloves, so he could be of any race
