Is There A Dark And Darker Solo Queue?

Is there a way to play Dark and Darker solo? Let's delve deeper into the answer to this question.
Is There A Dark And Darker Solo Queue?

Dark and Darker is a dungeon crawler designed to be played with friends, taking players into the depths of dungeons to defeat enemies and take home loot as a team. But what if you want to play Dark and Darker by yourself? Is there a solo queue in Dark and Darker that you can use to venture into the dungeons on your own? These are some great questions, and thankfully, developers have recently answered them. In this article, we'll go over whether Dark and Darker has a solo queue and how to access it.

April 2023 UPDATE - Dark and Darker Playtest 5 is supposed to start later this month, but with the uncertainty surrounding the game and the legal battle with Nexon, it's unclear if this will still go ahead.

Is There A Dark And Darker Solo Queue?

Yes, there is a Dark and Darker solo queue as of the Playtest #4, which is live as of February 2023. The solo queue comes in the form of a new map, called the Goblin Caves. As the name implies, the Goblin Caves are filled with tons of goblin enemies that players can set out to defeat on their own.

The Goblin Caves are similar to the other maps in the game, but do not offer legendary drops; players can find a maximum of epic rarity drops in the Goblin Caves. Still, if you're a solo player who wants to grind some dungeons, the Goblin Caves are a great place to stock up on some loot.

IRONMACE Games first confirmed on their Twitter on 2nd February that a solo queue would be coming to the game during this playtest.

There's only one solo queue map in Dark and Darker right now - the Goblin Caves - but it's possible that more could be added prior to or after the game's release.

If you want to play Dark and Darker solo, you'll be happy to hear that there's a Dark and Darker solo queue. If IRONMACE games add more solo queue maps, we'll be the first to let you know.
