DLC plans for Darksiders III revealed

Posted October 13, 2018 by John Little in Announcements, Articles, DLC, News, PC, PS4, Xbox One

The game hasn’t even launched yet and plans for DLC are already being revealed, as is the way nowadays I suppose. But positively speaking, it shows that the developers are looking to expand on Darksiders III into the future, and if the game turns out to be any good then we’ll have more to look forward to in time.

Two pieces of DLC have been announced so far in The Crucible and Keepers of the Void.

The Crucible sees Fury challenged by a strange entity, and gaining access to a new location will have to fight waves of enemies to unlock items and rewards.

Whereas Keepers of the Void reveals a quest from Vulgrim to remove an ancient threat that resides in the Serpent Holes. Completing puzzles and defeating new enemies, Fury will unlock new weapons and armour.

To be brutally honest, neither sound particularly interesting to me. The Crucible sounds like an arena mode – which I’ve never considered worthwhile DLC for any game – and Keepers of the Void a simple puzzle hunt for DLC armour. Perhaps I’m wrong and they will turn out to be worthy additions, but I’m suspicious at the moment – if it’s just a separating of basic content to provide DLC then I will be very disappointed.

The game will launch on the 27th November, and for those interested in pre-ordering the game, there is an ongoing campaign with multiple packs for various pre-order bonuses that you can find online.

I started gaming with the release of the PS1 - Crash Bandicoot and Ridge Racer Revolution being the first 'real' games I ever set eyes on - and have been enthralled with the medium ever since. I particularly love strategy and horror games, the sort offered by titles such as Total War and Silent Hill, though I also have a soft spot for a good RPG. I studied Journalism at university in the hopes of progressing into writing about games. You'll most likely find me covering indie games as I'm always on the look out for interesting little titles, and generally I stick to the PC and PS4 platforms. I'm not interested in MMOs or really any kind of online game, and I have an unusual and frankly worryingly expensive obsession with collecting gaming guide books, but aside from that I like to think I'm a well rounded average gamer.
