Darksiders 3 Concept Art

Gunfire Games offers you to witness the concept art of Fury and the Seven Deadly Sins from Darksiders III.

From the very beginning, hack and slash action-adventure franchise of Darksiders did one thing constantly and that is creating a post-apocalyptic scenario in a modern world right. Whether it is the hellish creatures, surrounding environments or weaponry, they just set things as it should.

So, as developer Gunfire Games and publisher THQ Nordic slowly march towards the launch of Darksiders III, the latest release from the series, we got our hands on a series of concept art pieces that helped the studio translate apocalypse into the game from art.

Interpreting an entire planet consumed by the end times and how it has been taken over by otherworldly beings were a lot to work with but then again, nothing was off limits for the artists to go out for and follow any directions if that serves the purpose.

The biggest spin the second sequel took is that they introduced a female protagonist, Fury as the third horseman of the Apocalypse. She is a vengeful mage who is unlike her brothers War or Death and has a lot to offer when she is on the lead.

Also, the game features a near-endless group of enemies that would come across player's path as they stomp though to encounter The Seven Deadly Sins in the endgame. As the story continues further, design inspiration from previous Darksiders game will not go unnoticed to keen eyes.

The game goes deep into the fiery pit of Hell and comes back to Earth looking for a piece of Heaven over and over again. The gameplay mechanics and the plot background perfectly support that idea to take it to a new height.

Within hours, Darksiders III launches worldwide on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for a legion of dedicated fans and of course, to the casuals looking for a good time. On that note, you can also check out Darksiders (2010) and Darksiders II (2012) to catch up with the latest title if you are interested.

DayZ Beta Live Now

After spending half a decade, DayZ is about to leave Early Access on Steam and Beta goes live now as 1.0 version.

Developer/publisher Bohemia Interactive started their journey of open world multiplayer survival game DayZ that was built as a mod for Arma 2 in 2012. It was launched via Early Access on Steam for PC back in 2013 as they were running alpha testing.

After spending half a decade in that phase for slow development progress, the studio is finally launched an experimental "beta" version as 1.0 release after making an announcement earlier in their official blog and it is available for public.

RELATED: DayZ Leaving Early Access in 2018

Initially, the mod's creator, Dean Hall came to work for Bohemia to work on the Arma franchise when he took a leave from New Zealand army. He was inspired from a real-life experience of a training exercise that led him to create zombie survival game.

With permission from the company, Hall created the DayZ mod for Arma 2 and then released it as a free download. People simply loved it and within months, have amassed a staggering number of over half a million players.

RELATED: Days Gone Delayed Again

This made Bohemia Interactive to seriously consider the mod to turn it into a stand-alone game. When Valve's online distribution platform Steam unleashed the second wave of big Early Access titles, it came out selling a million copies in just four weeks.

Although they targeted to release a beta version of the game before the end of 2014, the team of development has struggled to deliver what they promised to their fans. They only managed to revamp the game engine and expanded Chernarus map.

RELATED: Amnesia: Collection on Xbox One Out Now

The problem was, without fixing the already existing issues and fixing bugs, the studio was busy adding additional features to it. Meanwhile, Hall moved on with founding his own studio and director Brian Hicks left the project on early 2018.

However, rest of the team finally pulled it off by releasing the experimental beta build and came to a decision of preparing a stable 1.0 version with all available content by January 2019 by putting a stop to their usual feature developing practice.

RELATED: DayZ Coming to Xbox One

Since their core technology development is done for, Bohemia Interactive can now center their focus on polishing and making balance tweaks. Some of you may or may not have noticed some of the fixed issues in the past week already if you are still playing.

Given the overall situation, they made the right call of prioritizing their primary promise to the already existing 1 million players from the early days who believed in them and bought an unfinished game and to many more to come in future.

The Joker and Harley Quinn Coming to PUBG

The Joker and Harley Quinn escaped Belle Reve Penitentiary for a Suicide Squad crossover event in PUBG.

Battle Royale genre of games already had enough competitors like Fortnite, Free Fire and H1Z1 to give PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds a run for their money before Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 came out introducing the Blackout mode.

To stay relevant to players these days, PUBG has decided to do a crossover event (or what everyone else thought) with 2016's superhero movie Suicide Squad to generate some hype for the game but it turns out that they were only intending to release new skins.

To be very specific, only the skin of The Joker and Harley Quinn are going to be available and the trailer below showcases how things are going to be.

Although The Joker skin doesn't look anything close to how Jared Leto portrayed the character in Suicide Squad movie except for his garb. His face is just covered with white paint and he is not even sporting his evil grin on his face. In all honesty, it looks horrible.

Harley Quinn doesn't look anything like Margot Robbie either but her resemblance is close enough to the original counterpart compared to her better half. The baseball bat she carries around o her back may serve as a weapon akin to the infamous pan though.

PUBG Corp. didn't go into revealing further detail aside from the announcement trailer on how or if this exclusive appearance of the Clown Prince of Crime and his crazy girlfriend is going to impact the game anyhow.

Back in May 2018, their rival company Epic Games did a limited time Infinity Gauntlet mashup in Fortnite following the release of Avengers: Infinity War movie. Not only PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds joined the party late, all they got for now is two DC villains. Tough luck indeed!

Days Gone Delayed Again

Upcoming zombie-apocalypse adventure Days Gone from Bend Studio has been delayed again for two months now.

Upcoming action-adventure survival horror game Days Gone from developer Bend Studio and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment was previously delayed to 2019 and then came up with an official release date of February 22, 2019.

However, according to a recent official Blog post, this PlayStation 4-exclusive title has now been pushed back for two more months and newly revealed launch date is set for April 26, 2019. The developer studio wants to take this extra time to further polish the game.

Though these setbacks can be annoying for this highly anticipated title, it may actually be for good because the February 2019 lineup is pretty crowded with games like Anthem, Crackdown 3 and Metro Exodus from Electronic Arts, Microsoft and Deep Silver respectively.

Moving up to April makes the game one of the biggest console launch for that month as well as less competition at that time. Plus, those couple of extra months in development can really makes a difference to the game that is already looking pretty awesome.




Days Gone is a post-apocalyptic motorbike adventure in a world which has been ravaged by zombie-like creatures called Freakers and players take the role of a bounty hunter and drifter named Deacon St. John, who scavenges for supplies in order to survive.

The game was originally revealed back at E3 2016 and then went on to release a few videos showcasing some extended gameplay walkthroughs. Initially, the creators wanted to release the game on 2018 but due to circumstances, it is delayed this long.

The four voice actors from the original series; James Arnold Taylor, Matt Lanter, Corey Burton and Matthew Wood would return to voice for Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Count Dooku and General Grievous respectively in the Clone Wars DLC.

If you have looked at the track record of Star Wars Battlefront II, then you already know that the game received heavy backlash even before the release for including loot boxes and micro-transactions, which even caused their stock price to drop.

Including a Clone Wars DLC featuring the original voice casts from the TV show not only brings new level of detail to the game but also intensifies the hype (Darth Vader's heavy breathing sound) of the upcoming season that still awaits an official release date.

Darksiders 3 Force Hollow Trailer

Introducing the Force Hollow form of Fury and the way Darksiders III redefines character progression within the game.

Previous Horsemen of the Apocalypse from Darksiders and Darksiders II had their unique forms and weaponry that become a staple for the hack and slash action-adventure game franchise from developer Gunfire Games and publisher THQ Nordic.

Upcoming Darksiders III is all set to launch for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in November 27, 2018. Earlier, the Flame Hollow form of the game's protagonist Fury was showcased in one of the trailer and now we are about to witness her Force Hollow form.

Take a look at the Force Hollow trailer as Fury jumps into action in one of her newly revealed form that entirely decimates her enemies.

In terms of character progression, the game takes a giant leap and changes a few things about the primary character Fury than her warrior brothers War and Death from prior titles when it comes to appear in battle as the third Horseman of the Apocalypse.

Whereas War used to wield his Chaoseater blade and Death carried The Harvester scythe, Fury's weapon of choice is a 347 bladed whip, Barbs of Scorn. Just as she changes form during battles, her blades can become a Hammer in her Force Fury form.

A reformed Scorn taking the shape of a battle hammer complements her fighting style with a ball of energy around her. In her newest form, she has a purple aura around her and this one is the second form she can take among four by unlocking it throughout the game.

Switching into these different forms and changing your weapon into many shapes is designed for more tactical approach to combat. This presents players with various opportunities to approach their deadly adversaries and defeat them in a confrontation.

Whenever you engage a boss from any of the Seven Deadly Sins, each will fight you differently and challenge your skill in a unique way. For example, Sloth in subway stations will send off his minions to keep you busy and form bubbles of poison to infect you.

Another fine aspect of the game is that there are no arranged lines for you to face the bosses. Players can make up their mind on which boss they want to encounter in various point of the story progression, something that most other game lacks.

The studio shows their clear intention of moving afar from how the series used to move forward with gameplay and about to create a complex character with Fury in Darksiders III, which will be a defining point for the franchise for sure.

When one of her newest form will be revealed soon, we expect to see her display some new and awesome array of abilities while her Scorn probably takes the shape of a powerful blade maybe? We believe, Gunfire Games may even end up giving her the ability of flying.

Darksiders 3 Gamescom 2018 Trailer

New action-packed trailer of Darksiders III at Gamescom 2018 features Fury alongide her Horsemen brothers.

After two fan-favorite installments, what Darksiders franchise suffered is a six year-long gap when THQ was completely bankrupt in 2012. However, things came back in track when Gunfire Games took charge of development for the third game of the series and thus, came hack and slash action-adventure Darksiders III. We are only three months away from the title to release on November 27 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One while GamesCom 2018 brought us a brand-new trailer.

The trailer is a mix of the story focusing on Fury, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and some of her actions within the game.




RELATED: Darksiders 3 Release Date Leaked

Fury is tasked to hunt down Seven Deadly Sins on a ravaged Earth, where she unleashes her true nature to slay down beasts of all sorts that came in her way. During her mission set by the Charred Council, she came across some giant bizarre creatures, which are possibly the boss characters and we see her excellent combat skills with her long-range whip. It is safe to admit that Fury packs a better move set than her brothers considering their usability in combat and they are far more practical too.

Fraction of her gameplay footage also showcases surroundings from a ruined world and demonic entities that inherits it now. One other thing to notice here is that, the gameplay mechanics have improved to make all of her moves fluid smooth. At one point, she is also met by Horseman War and Death but what significance they bring to her story is still unclear. This might also be from a flashback sequence that is to serve as part of back-story for protagonist Fury to visit Earth.
