With the collapse of THQ, it appeared unattainable that Vigil’s sequence of ’90s comic-styled hack n’ slash adventures would ever see one other game, however right here we’re, with Darksiders 3 on the way in which, and due for launch this November 27th. Published below the reborn THQ Nordic banner and developed by Gunfire Games (staffed largely by ex-Vigil individuals), the third game places gamers within the monster-stomping boots of Fury, who’s a woman regardless of being one of many 4 horsemales of the apocalypse.
Set roughly in parallel with Darksiders 2, from what we’ve seen of the third game in motion it roughly appears to be like comparable in model, favouring quicker motion and mobility over the heavyweight, Zelda-esque brawls of the primary. We’re most definitely due for an additional sprawling post-apocalyptic journey, that includes a whole lot of dungeons to crawl, monsters to whip, platforms to clamber over and loot to hoard. Also skellingtons. Lots of skellingtons – they’re just about a Darksiders staple now.
Along with saying the discharge date, THQ Nordic introduced two items of DLC for the game (included in a considerably dearer Deluxe version of the game), plus a pair of collectors version bins. Regular super-fans should buy a big-boxed Collectors Edition of the game with an 11-inch-tall mannequin of latest protagonist Fury, whereas these with far extra money than sense (and an almighty love of overblown character designs) can get the Apocalypse Edition, which incorporates fashions of all three protagonists, plus demon shopkeeper Vulgrim and a few additional goodies.
I admit that I wouldn’t thoughts having these characters lining a shelf (I’m an enormous dork), however the asking value of simply the common collectors version field is a wallet-puncturing £130/150€/$150, and the Apocalypse version’s price-tag is a positively foolish £350/400€/$400. I don’t suppose I’ve ever favored any game sufficient to spend that a lot on it.
