Darkest Dungeon Story:

At the start of the game, the player learns that he has inherited a mansion from a relative who excavated the dungeons underneath their manor and has discovered portals to dark dimensions and freed horrific creatures. As the current owner of the mansion, the character must build a team to clean the mansion of its horrific creatures.

Darkest Dungeon Gameplay: 

The player controls a list of characters and travelers to discover dungeons beneath a gothic mansion, the character has inherited and clash with the creatures within. Before going to the dungeon, the player can use services in a city near the manor to enlist more characters, send characters to perform a variety of actions that can increase innovative battle or camping abilities, lessen their strain, or take away any difficulty that they incurred while in a dungeon, and purchase and put up for sale, gear and goods for character’s outfit, using cash and plunder found during dungeon runs. Many of these services can also be enhanced to put in further benefits or choices to the character. The player can employ up to 25 characters on their list at any time; every character fit in to one of 15 hero classes, and has their own information and abilities that can be promoted over time. If a character dies while discovering a cell, that character is lost for good. 
Before accessing the Darkest Dungeon four areas must be cleared, that are:
  • The Ruins: the ancient graves of the player's ancestors, now crawling with skeletons and host to a Necromancer.
  • The Weald: the dense forest near the hamlet that has slime monsters and cannibalistic hags.
  • The Cove: the caves under the cliff on which the manor is built, occupied by fish-men and a ghostly Pirate crew.
  • The Warrens: the sewers of the manor, occupied by pig-men.

Once sufficient heroes have been put together to the suitable levels, they are led into the Darkest Dungeon where the final boss lives.
After preparations are complete, four heroes are selected to explore the dungeon. Most dungeons can be accessed after completing numerous previous dungeons and gathering precise types of loot and later dungeons are more difficult.
