Battle Chasers: Nightwar, a new collaboration by a bunch of ex-Darksiders creatives, is on Kickstarter right now. The JRPG-inspired game looks terrific, and is already well on its way to meeting its $500,000 goal after a single day.
Death rides one more time in the upcoming Darksiders 2 Deathinative Edition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Let’s see the difference a rewritten renderer and enhanced lighting can make.
A "Definitive Edition" of Darksiders 2 is coming to the PS4, GameSpot has confirmed with publisher Nordic Games. Hooray for more new-gen ports?
The Darksiders series isn't really dead. Nordic games owns it, and will presumably do something with it. But the series as we knew it, developed by Vigil Games, may as well have died earlier this year when Vigil went off and joined Crytek and left Darksiders behind, where no major publisher on Earth wanted anything…
The auctions following the closure of former publisher THQ are over. Homeworld, for example, was bought by Gearbox Software—as we learned earlier today. That's not all, of course. Nordic Games, the publisher behind games like Alan Wake on PC and Painkiller: Resurrection, nabbed a good number of THQ games.
David Adams, the CEO of Crytek USA, has tweeted that he (or at least his company) is looking into buying the rights to the Darksiders series when it hits the auction block as part of the last sale of THQ properties.
The THQ/Humble fire sale is back as part of Humble's new weekly deal. If you missed it last time, you can grab Red Faction: Armageddon and the first Darksiders for $1 right now. Bump your contribution to $6.77 or more to nab Red Faction: Guerrilla and Darksiders 2, which were not included in the previous bundle. […
After the big auction for its top-shelf intellectual property and game studios last month, the bones of former publishing giant THQ have announced that the company's remaining franchises are now to be sold as part of a "court-approved sales process."
Surprisingly, blood suckers aren't as common in video games as you might expect. They might appear as a generic type of enemy, and of course there are a few of them in the Castlevania series. We collected some of these vampires, paying attention to leave out those who like to carry people on their backs.
News has broken out about the sale of THQ's assets and it looks like many of the defunct publisher's signature franchises have been acquired. But, surprisingly, some seemingly bankable properties haven't been snatched up.
THQ, the troubled publisher of Saints Row, WWE games, Company of Heroes, Metro: Last Light, the new South Park role-playing game, Red Faction and more, may still be sold in its entirety to an investment group called Clearlake as part of a bankruptcy sale, according to a court ruling.
Let's say you don't yet own Darksiders II, do own a Wii U, and are considering picking the game up for your new console. How's it shape up against the versions that have been out on the market on competing platforms for a few months now?
Ahh, Humble Bundle, the best site in the world for great packages of indie games and- wait, what's this? Saints Row? Darksiders? I see you, THQ! Just peeking in the bushes there, waiting to ensnare us with your new humble bundle. You're not an indie developer at all, THQ! What are you even doing.
Just when you think you know where this live-action short from Somewhat Awesome Films is going, it, uh, surprises you. Vigil Games added a deeper level of customization to Darksiders II and its central character apparently can't get enough of all the goodies he finds. Except for Resident Evil 6. Can't say I blame…
Joe Maduriera—comics artist and creative director on the Darksiders games—will be leaving dev studio Vigil Games.
The "Argul's Tomb" DLC for Darksiders II is available today. It's 560 MS Points on 360, or $6.99 on PS3 & PC.
Good news: true to their word, Vigil has issued the first update for the PC version of Darksiders II, addressing a number of problems players have had with that version of the game. Among the fixes: easier key-mapping, in-game crashes, and crucially, the broken v-sync, which resulted in unfixable screen-tearing for…
