Mods were of significant importance for the community of the first Darkest Dungeon, but what about Darkest Dungeon 2? You may have noticed that in the menu, the mod section is missing. So does Darkest Dungeon 2 have mods?

Modifying a game can significantly enhance your in-game experience. Here you will find out everything you need to know about Darkest Dungeon 2 version 1.0 mods!

Does Darkest Dungeon 2 have mods?

The short answer is yes, there are a few mods for Darkest Dungeon 2. At the same time, there is no mod support in version 1.0. But some players have found a way around this.

The only way to modify the game in the current version is to manually change some of the game files. That can be a bit complicated and puts you at risk of corrupting your files if done incorrectly, which would mean reinstalling the game. Also, mods that rewrite the same files will be incompatible with each other.

The game developers announced adding better mod support on Twitter just before launch. We can expect that Steam Workshop will be added to the game eventually. We recommend that you wait for the developers to introduce mod support into Darkest Dungeon 2, rather than installing the mods manually.
