Darksiders 3 adds optional snappier combat, respecs and more checkpoints

Darksiders 3 seems like a game with an identity crisis, but it latest patch looks to align the Souls-inspired sequel a bit more with its predecessor's less punishing combat. In its second major patch (noted here), Gunfire Games have added an optional "Classic" combat option, intended to feel a bit more like earlier Darksiders games. In this mode, players can now cancel out of attack…

Feature: *or just as many as we care to mention

Podcast: Every game released in November reviewed very quickly*

 There are too many games. November is over, but it was a big month, and our giant collective digi-trough runneth over with shooters, stabbers and clickers. It’s repulsive and very wasteful, quite frankly. Thankfully, the RPS podcast (aka the Electronic Wireless Show) is here to snort up the good ‘uns and stamp all over the bad ‘uns. This week the pod squad are running…

Darksiders 3 rides into stores today

I never thought I'd see another Darksiders released after the implosion of THQ, but Darksiders 3 is out now and developed by Gunfire Games. The latest in the overblown post-apocalyptic action adventure series is apparently an odd beast. Folk can't seem to decide if it's rubbish or great, and our Alec Meer reckons in his review that it's both, thanks to its own confused identity. Sometimes…

Darksiders III review

"Practice and penance!" snarls Susan Dark Souls, slamming a gnarled first into the table. Kevin Diablo rolls his bleary eyes and leans back in his chair. "Nah, man, just like, have a good time all the time." Susan and Kevin are both dear friends of mine, but boy, oh boy do they not get on. Darksiders III often plays like a valiant attempt to create…

Darksiders 3’s post-launch DLC includes an arena mode and Serpent Holes

Some time after Gunfire's apocalyptic hack n' slasher Darksiders 3 launches next month, whip-cracking heroine Fury gets to poke around some Serpent Holes. Nothing to do with Brendan's horny lizard-folk, but rather one of two planned bits of DLC for the game included in the Deluxe Edition's price. The first DLC - The Crucible - has Fury return to the survival arena from Darksiders 2, while…

Feature: Now updated with even more ray-tracing and DLSS-confirmed games

Here’s a list of every game that’s going to look amazing on the Nvidia RTX 2080 and 2080Ti

Last week, the first of three shiny new Nvidia Turing cards finally pitched up on shop shelves - the RTX 2080. You can head over to my Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 review to find out more on what I thought of the card as a general pixel pusher, but the long and short of it is that you're probably not looking at much of a…

Feature: Don't let us down

10 PC games we’re still looking forward to in 2018

As we stare into the weary, craggy face of the final quarter of 2018, there is still a glimmer of hope. The games are not yet done. They will never be done. And the impending release of them, some close, some a little further away, stirs something within us. The delicate, easily crushed butterfly of excitement. We may catch it yet, to keep in our…

THQ Nordic’s Steam sale makes pun-laden remasters extra cheap

It's hard not to feel that publisher THQ Nordic and RPS share a mutual love of terrible puns. Case in point: Their sale this weekend on Steam, running from now until Monday, August 27th. While most of their catalogue is discounted, the best deals are to be found in remasters with terrible pun titles. Darksiders Warmastered Edition, Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition and the recent Red Faction…

Darksiders 3 rides again into the apocalypse November

With the collapse of THQ, it seemed impossible that Vigil's series of '90s comic-styled hack n' slash adventures would ever see another game, but here we are, with Darksiders 3 on the way, and due for release this November 27th. Published under the reborn THQ Nordic banner and developed by Gunfire Games (staffed in large part by ex-Vigil people), the third game puts players in…

Feature: The year two thousand and eighteen is upon us

The most exciting games of 2018

As we lay 2017 to rest, let us remember all of the wonderful games that flickered across our screens and occupied our hearts and minds. But now we must promise never to think of them again because times have changed. This is 2018 and if we've learned one thing from the few hours we've spent in it it's that there are games everywhere. Every firework…

Darksiders 3: 12 minutes of whipping enemies to shreds

Darksiders 3 [official site] was only announced four days ago but we've already got 12 minutes of gameplay to inspect. The pre-alpha footage shows Fury, one of the Horsemen (horsewoman?) of the Apocalypse, jumping and rolling through a city that's been torn apart by nature, fighting giant crabs, horned red monstrosities and – finally – Sloth, one of the Seven Deadly Sins. He's basically a massive, bulbous…

Darksiders 3 is coming in 2018 [updated]

Update: Yup, it's now official. THQ Nordic have announced that Darksiders 3 is coming in 2018, made with the former Vigil Games folks at Gunfire Games. It seems a Darksiders 3 [official site] will indeed rise from the ruins of THQ with more Apocalyptic action, as listings for it have unexpectedly popped up on Amazon. This time, Fury will be the Horseman riding out to…

Darksiders 3 Is Still Planned, Obvs

Can even the Four Horsemen survive an apocalyptic event? Nordic Games hope so. When THQ went down in flames, Nordic bought up Darksiders - but not its creators, Vigil Games - and (naturally) declared that the hack 'n' slash action-RPG was not dead. While some assumed this would mean a Darksiders III, Nordic were a little vague, and the first we saw of DS again…
