The goal in Dark and Darker is to get in, grab the loot, survive, and also get out alive. During your dungeon diving experience, you will encounter various traps, players, monsters, and other dangerous things all trying to kill you. To do this successfully, you will have to learn all the Dark and Darker maps.
You will be spawned into a particular map each time you begin a match. You can also spawn into a solo dungeon experience, the Goblin Caves in Dark and Darker. It’s imperative to your survival however that you learn how to navigate each dungeon. Learning each map is a great way to boost your survival chances in Dark and Darker.
Crypts vs Inferno Dark and Darker Maps
The Crypt will normally be the second level of the dungeon, however there is no level 1 at the moment. Therefore, players currently spawn into a map on floor 2.
Those floors are called “Crypts.” Basically, each time a match begins the game will roll one of the Crypt maps and that’s the map that you will start on. There are also currently 6 Crypts in the game.
There are also 3 Inferno Dark and Darker maps, one being High Roller exclusive. You can access the inferno maps by traveling through a red portal that you can find on floor 2 in the crypt.
These rooms however are much higher difficult and have a dungeon boss with mechanics that you can fight and kill for great loot. These bosses are also incredibly difficult to take down.
There is also a new map in the game featuring the outside world before the dungeon dive. This map is known as “Ruins”.

Different Game Modes
There are 2 different game modes you can choose from when you spawn into the game, Normal and High Roller.
The normal mode is a free to enter mode, and also what most players use. However, the high-roller mode raises the stakes. This mode will provide you with higher rewards at a much greater risk.
High roller mode is made for players who are skilled at the game. In order to enter this mode you will need to lay and entrance fee of 50-100 gold (This could change in later updates).
Upon entering high roller mode you will also be pitted against better competition in terms of players and the difficulty of monsters. However, with greater risk comes greater reward. In this mode you will be able to earn more rare weapons and armor, and the chance to obtain legendary gear without having to kill the bosses within the Inferno maps.
Currently, the game has 3 maps types to choose from:
- Crypts (Normal and High Roller)
- Goblin Cave Solo (Normal and High Roller)
- Ruins Solo/Duo (Normal)
