DLC plans for Darksiders III revealed
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.
