Don’t Expect to See Darksiders III at E3 This Year, “Gears Already Turning” for Darksiders 4 Story

[embedded content] Darksiders III has been one of the more surprising reveals of the year and the folks at IGN recently posted a community Q&A where developer Gunfire Games answered several questions from the community. One of the questions asked was whether Darksiders III would be present at this year’s E3 and the studio confirmed that the game won’t be making an appearance at the event, although they did mention that another reveal is planned for release soon. We will not be at E3…but Fury will be making another appearance soon. The studio also answered a question about the possibility of a Darksiders IV and the studio said that “the gears are already turning on what the story would be,” which could mean we may see even more games from the Darksiders franchise in the future. Probably if Darksiders III becomes successful. As for Darksiders III, its story is set somewhere around the same time as Darksiders II. The game is set for release sometime in 2018 for the PlayStation 4 and other platforms. [Source: IGN] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!

Ex-Vigil Devs Explain How Darksiders III Survived the Death of THQ

[embedded content] In case you weren’t keeping tabs on gaming news back then, you might not know that THQ Nordic is not the original THQ. The original THQ went up in flames over a haze of poorly-received games that didn’t stop the publisher from going bankrupt. While the business side of THQ was having to jump one hurdle after another, some of its studios managed to develop some fantastic games. One of these said games is Vigil Games’ Darksiders. Long story short: Darksiders II was the last one published by THQ, the IP got sold, and the ex-Vigil people started their own studio called Gunfire Games. Now that Darksiders III is officially confirmed, the Gunfire devs who came from Vigil are ready to talk about what happened and how the game survived the publisher’s meltdown. In the video above, which is part of IGN’s on-going exclusive series about DarkSiders III, the ex-Vigil developers talk a bit on how the game came to be. While they didn’t go into the specifics too much, they did share how they always wanted to continue the franchise since it’s their baby and all that. If you’d rather see more of the game, check out…

The Town of Light Launches on June 6 for PS4, Xbox One & PC

[embedded content] A first-person psychological adventure game, The Town of Light is releasing on June 6 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, publisher Wired Productions has announced. It’ll be available through physical and digital stores, priced at $19.99/€19.99/£15.99. Set in 1938, The Town of Light stars Renée, a 16-year-old girl who suffers from symptoms of mental illness. The description adds, “Players must search for answers to the many questions from her past while exploring and uncovering the place where she spent most of her youth. What happens next is a dark and emotional journey where the lines of interactive entertainment, storytelling and reality frequently tend to blur.” Originally released in early 2016 on PC, this enhanced version of The Town of Light includes new puzzles, new story-supporting content, reworked voice-over dialogue, additional interactive elements and a graphical and UI overhaul. Existing owners of the PC version will receive a free update with the new content. [embedded content] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!


Here’s 12 Minutes of Darksiders III Gameplay

[embedded content] Darksiders III was officially revealed earlier this week, and in a new 12-minute video from IGN, you’ll get to see some pre-alpha gameplay with Fury travelling through the game world and fighting enemies. Beginning at 7:50, you’ll see Fury take on Sloth, Lord of the Flies and one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Darksiders III is IGN’s First for the month, and in their recent preview they said Darksiders III’s puzzle should make sense in an environment, rather than being a trap set out by an unseen character. Additionally, there shouldn’t be any gated combat, enemies should feel like they belong in the world (instead of just popping up), the game is linear in terms of story progression, and there will be collectibles throughout the world, but you won’t find any random chests. IGN also says the game world is supposed to be fully connected and realized, without any hard loads, and the world almost acts as one giant dungeon. Darksiders III launches in 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. What do you think of the gameplay? [Source: IGN] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!
