There are indications that a mobile version of the Dark and Darker game is in the works. The developer of PUBG, Krafton, recently announced that it has secured the worldwide rights to the Dark and Darker mobile game. This could potentially allow gamers to experience the dungeon crawler-style battle royale on their mobile devices in the near future.
What is Dark and Darker?
Dark and Darker is an indie game that takes place in a medieval fantasy world. It combines PvPvE gameplay, where players become dungeon divers searching for loot. The game’s unique feature is that it is not solely a battle royale, but also has the added challenge of an extraction shooter. Players must not only fight against each other but also against AI monsters to secure loot and flee to safety.
The battle royale genre has become oversaturated, but games like Escape From Tarkov have managed to succeed. This particular game combines elements of extraction shooters, a unique setting, and stunning visuals. It appeals not only to fans of extraction shooters but also to those who enjoy dark fantasy games. The game is called Dark and Darker.
Krafton’s Dark and Darker Mobile Game
Krafton plans to take advantage of the popularity of the successful games Dark and Darker by potentially creating a mobile game based on them. This acquisition of the global license for Dark and Darker demonstrates Krafton’s dedication to increasing its involvement in the mobile gaming industry. Krafton’s independent studio, Bluehole, is currently developing a new mobile game.
However, it appears that it’s unclear if the new Dark and Darker mobile IP is also included in the future development pipeline. Rafael Lim, the Senior Head of Krafton’s Publishing Business Division, stated that the company recognizes this IP’s potential and is looking forward to the unique experience it will bring to the mobile gaming market.
