Red Hook Studios' gothic roguelike turn-based RPG Darkest Dungeon is your free game for today, December 25 on Epic Games Store. The game will be available for free download until tomorrow.

Celebrating Holidays by playing dark dungeon crawlers? Well, Epic Games Store got you covered. You can now download one of the best games in this genre on their storefront. It's Red Hook Studios' critically acclaimed turn-based RPG Darkest Dungeon, which originally released back in 2015.

While the game never really reached the popularity of other RPG games on the market, it's safe to say that the players have recognised it as one of the most unique gaming experiences in the RPG genre. The game is described as a challenging gothic roguelike turn-based RPG about the psychological stresses of adventuring. 

You'll get to recruit, train, and lead a team of flawed heroes against unimaginable horrors, stress, famine, disease, and the ever-encroaching dark. On Steam, all reviews average currently sits at 90% while the recent reviews are even more positive - 95 out of 100.

If you enjoy similar games you have probably played this gem by now but if you are one of those that are yet to dive into the dark world of Darkest Dungeon, this is a perfect opportunity to finally try the game. It's free and it won't get any cheaper than this. 

Red Hook Studios recently announced a sequel - Darkest Dungeon II - which is coming to early access sometime in 2021. 

Epic Games Store Holiday giveaway will continue tomorrow with farming sim My Time At Portia.
