Dark and Darker Early Access Season 4 Patch Notes

  • The addition of the new Ice Abyss!
  • The addition of the new Druid Class!
  • New emotes and the Lycan race!
  • Renewed focus on dungeon crawling, starting with the removal of the circle mechanic.
  • Ability to upgrade to Legendary Status!
  • Cross-play across multiple PC platforms.
  • Major balance changes!

On top of the new features, we’d like to give a small peek into some of our plans this season including: -A Platform Link feature that allows for cross-progression across multiple PC platforms. For our players on Blacksmith who have already purchased the game and want to launch their account from another platform, we ask for your patience and continue playing on Blacksmith for just a little bit longer until this system is released. We feel strongly that our early adopters should not be required to re-purchase the game on another cross-play PC platform.

  • An upgraded matchmaking system that removes the pre-lobby, ratcheting up tension and improving the matchmaking times.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. Currently stuck in WoW with high M+ keys, Tarkov, a bit of Gray Zone Warfare, Dota 2, and CS2. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC. If you need anything, feel free to contact me on X!
