The last console generation seems like a quainter time compared to now. Granted, we didn’t have as many indie games then as we do now, but for every big-budget blockbuster there were numerous B-games: passion projects lacking polish but full of heart. We’re talking about games like Deadly Premonition, Binary Domain, The...
We recently received confirmation of a release date for THQ Nordic's upcoming sequel, Darksiders III, and courtesy of IGN, a decent chunk of gameplay is now available. In the video above, you can see main character Fury hacking and slashing her way through various beasties (including a mini boss towards the end) and solving some basic...
Hey, how much do you like Darksiders? Enough to spend $399.99 on a special edition, mayhaps? You’ll get the chance from 27th November, as THQ Nordic has confirmed threequel Darksiders III’s rumoured release date as part of an IGN First story. Just a little more chaos to add to the Christmas apocalypse won’t hurt, w
It's coming home
Darksiders III, along with the rest of publisher THQ Nordic’s portfolio, is scheduled to get a blowout at Gamescom next month – but some details may have already leaked. A Microsoft Store page has attached a 26th November release date to the forgotten threequel, which has been
Open world, release date,
We've known about Metro: Exodus for some time, but we learned a ton of new information during Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference. We learned the official release date, how it will differ from the previous two entries, and some plot details. In this guide, we'll round up everything there is to know about...
THQ Nordic’s re-Mars-tered edition of explosive PlayStation 3 open worlder Red Faction Guerrilla will drive its little space buggy to the PlayStation 4 from 3rd July. The game will run in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second on the standard PS4, or in 1500p at 60 frames-per-second on the PS4 Pro. Alternatively, you’ll be able to play in 4K...
Who can blame them?
E3 2018 and the FIFA World Cup take place in very close proximity to each other this year, and because of that, the Austrian-based company THQ Nordic are snubbing the Los Angeles show floor for the beer gardens of Vienna this time around as they watch the World Cup in Russia from a safe distance. Because of that, we'll get...
Explosive open world adventure Red Faction Guerrilla is getting re-Mars-tered for the PlayStation 4 – and yes, that is the pun that publisher THQ Nordic is running with. Set to release in Q2 2018, the PlayStation 3 port will boast fully reworked graphics, improved lighting, and 4K support for the PS4 Pro. For those who didn’t play this...
Here's something we bet you weren't expecting to read this afternoon: THQ Nordic has just announced a new partnership with Nickelodeon. Together, the companies aim to bring back a bunch of old games based on Nickelodeon's shows. Here's the full list of game titles as provided by THQ Nordic: Avatar: The Last Airbender Back At The...
Leave no stone unturned
Mystery awaits in THQ Nordic’s latest rework of its 2013 game The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief. The Remastered edition comes bundled with just the right amount of puzzle solving, wit, and charm as its counterpart, with some reworked animations as well as improvements to shading and lighting. It's an often slow-paced...
Totally rad. Not
Another week, another Kickstarter game makes the leap from PC to PlayStation 4. This time around it’s Rad Rodgers, a “spiritual successor” to those side scrolling platformers that graced the PC back in the nineties, such as Commander Keen and Jazz Jackrabbit. Nostalgia is definitely the main aim here, and for good or bad it...
THQ Nordic has just uploaded a new teaser for the unique BioMutant. Still scheduled for release this year, we've not heard too much about the title as yet, but this new video gives us a little sneak peek. It's not long at 90 seconds, but we get a decent look at some different player characters, the combat, and the diverse environments...
Red Faction: Guerrilla, the entertaining open world destruction simulation, appears to be heading to the PlayStation 4 – well, that’s if various GameStop listings are accurate. The title popped up on the websites of multiple European branches, with no release date attached. THQ Nordic has kept itself busy remastering various products in its...
THQ Nordic isn't done announcing new projects just yet. The latest game the publisher has revealed is a console release of Rad Rodgers, a Kickstarted platformer featuring the titular young boy and his cursing robot companion. The game launches on PS4 21st February. The game is a 2D platformer with shooter elements set in what appears to...
THQ Nordic has today announced it will be bringing The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief to PS4. Originally released on PS3 in 2013, the remaster of this episodic whodunnit mystery features fully redone animation, lighting, and hair, according to the publisher's press release. Additionally, The Raven Remastered will also feature subtitles in...
Poor man's Splatoon 2
THQ Nordic has today announced that it will be releasing de Blob 2 on PS4, and we won't have to wait very long. The port will be released on 27th February. This follows the re-release of the original game, which we had fun revisiting back in November. The publisher details the game in a press release, but you probably know...
Off-road motorsport mash-up MX vs. ATV All Out will saddle up on 27th March, publisher THQ Nordic has announced. Interestingly, digital pre-orders will score you four days early access, so you’ll be able to play from 23rd March if you purchase it from the PlayStation Store. Those who prefer to shop at retail will be rewarded with...
Oh right – they’re making Darksiders III! You’ll forgive us for forgetting because the project has gone dark since being announced prior to E3 2017, but here’s some new gameplay footage showing protagonist Fury cooling off by kicking the coal out of a Lava Brute. The animations have improved a lot, and this is starting to look like...
Will launch on PS4 once Early Access is over
Update (8th December): Fade to Silence will launch on the PS4 next year, once its Early Access period is over. Update (7th December): The first reveal of The Game Awards is out of the bag, and it's Early Access Steam survival game Fade to Silence. The reveal was leaked prematurely via Valve's...
A Scottish haunting
Before Charlie Brooker came onto the scene, Black Mirror was more commonly known as a series of point-and-click adventure games released on the PC in the mid-2000s. Its initial three entries were fairly well received, and after a seven year absence, the name is back with a re-imagining of its story, themes, and a mix-up in the...
Poor man's Splatoon?
Nine years after its appearance on the Wii, de Blob has rolled onto the PlayStation 4. While certainly an unexpected port, it isn’t an unwelcome one. This colourful platformer was a delightfully whimsical adventure nearly a decade ago, with a simple concept that exuded fun and creativity. Pleasingly, this holds true today...
You know what's really cool about opinions? You don't necessarily have to share them with other people. Sadly, this is a fact of life that the internet gets wrong all too often, so it's actually quite refreshing to see THQ Nordic having a laugh with its accolades trailer for ELEX. The open world role-playing game launched last month on...
Oozy ink-‘em-up de Blob will splat the PlayStation 4 on 14th November in North America and 17th November in Europe, publisher THQ Nordic has revealed. The game was a big hit on the Nintendo Wii, and it eventually spawned a sequel on the PlayStation 3. Scarily, the original is now nearing its tenth birthday, but it’s still cracking...
Wow, this one slipped under the radar, didn't it? An ambitious project from the developer behind the rather crap Risen series , ELEX was announced quite a while back, and we honestly forgot that it was out this month. And by this month, we mean tomorrow, the 17th October. Obviously, that means we don't have review code, and we have no...
Fixes crashes, improves loads of stuff
The latest Battle Chasers: Nightwar patch is available to download now on PlayStation 4, and it's bloody huge. We're not talking about the size of it, either -- we're referring to the massive list of changes and improvements that it promises. For those of you who don't know, the role-playing title...
Offroading like it's '08
Baja: Edge of Control was a title that released last generation back in 2008. Nine years later, publisher THQ Nordic and developer 2XL Games have decided to remaster this title and dub it “HD” (because, you know, last generation games weren’t HD already). That being said, lets see how this off-road racer fares for the...
Not a bad deal
THQ Nordic has brought back its Humble Bundle from earlier in the year, meaning that you can get up to 15 PlayStation 4 games for $15, which is a bargain really. Not all of the games are great, but you do get both Darksiders titles, as well as a few PS2 Classics like Red Faction and both Destroy All Humans! instalments. If you’re...
Good to hear
BioMutant, the unique looking action role-playing game that was revealed at Gamescom last month, looked quite promising in its first gameplay footage. However, one aspect that we weren't all that keen on was the narration. We don't mind a bit of commentary here and there, but this was the kind of thing that'd probably drive you mad...
And it looks good
BioMutant has been causing a bit of a stir over the last few days. The weird looking open world role-playing game made its debut at Gamescom 2017 - the German convention that's still ongoing - and now IGN's nabbed 11 whole minutes of gameplay. You can give it a watch above. Obviously this isn't PlayStation 4 footage, but that...
Well this is all happening rather quickly. BioMutant was leaked ahead of its Gamescom 2017 reveal, then we were given a CG teaser trailer yesterday. Said trailer snagged our interest, but it left us eager to actually see the game in action. Thankfully, that time has already come.
No gameplay, sadly
Leaked ahead of its official announcement, BioMutant is an open world role-playing game from ex-Just Cause and Mad Max developers. Featuring a weird main character and promising kung fu action, it's a project that at least sounds interesting. Sadly, we don't have any gameplay to gawk at yet, but publisher THQ Nordic has released...
One of Gamescom 2017’s secrets has already leaked in the form of THQ Nordic’s new – wait for it – post-apocalyptic open world kung-fu action role-playing game. The title’s called Biomutant, and features a weird wombat type animal armed with a bloody Buster Sword, because – well, why the hell not, eh? According to a...
Publisher THQ Nordic has uploaded the opening animation for Battle Chasers: Nightwar, and it's worth a watch. The gorgeous looking role-playing game, which is due to release near the start of October, has a diverse cast of playable heroes, and they all have their part to play in this intro movie. Has any one warrior in particular caught...
What could they be?
THQ Nordic has been doing some great work in the AA game space over the past couple of years, and with the upcoming release of Darksiders III, you'd think it already has its crown jewel that will potentially break into the mainstream. However, the company clearly isn't stopping there, as it's teased two announcements for next...
Last week, we wrote about the reappearance of ELEX, an open world role-playing title that's coming to PlayStation 4 in October. Its cinematic trailer made an interesting case, and now, you can get a glimpse of the game in action thanks to its new gameplay video. We don't like judging titles by their trailers, but the release is looking...
Similarly to the Diablo series, Victor Vran: Overkill Edition is all about loot. Whether you're breaking open pots, opening chests, or buying from merchants, Haemimont Games' latest sees you stuffing your pockets with all the weapons, consumables, and items that you can find, from scythes and swords to destiny cards and demon powers. At...
Hell hath no Fury
It was only announced days ago, but publisher THQ Nordic has teamed up with IGN to drop Darksiders III bombs like they’ve been forged by one of the four horsemen themselves. After this week’s reveal trailer, now 12 minutes of pre-alpha footage have
Fury's Collection is available now
All credit to THQ Nordic: it's played a blinder with the Darksiders III reveal. Recognising that the surprise sequel announcement may generate interest in the series, it's rolled out a fairly low price bundle on the PlayStation Store collating remasters Darksiders: Warmastered Edition and Darksiders II:...
911 is not a joke
Weappy Games' strategy-cum-noir adventure This Is the Police has you inhabit the day-to-day drudgery of retiring police chief Jack Boyd, grinding out his last 180 days on the force and trying to keep things running smoothly for the city of Freeburg's corrupt mayor. Dogged by allegations of corruption and a career full of regret, we...
What you gonna do when they come for you?
Anticipated adventure strategy game This Is the Police will begin its beat on the PlayStation 4 this week, so we dug out our baton and streamed the first hour or so live on our YouTube channel. You can witness all of the action via the archive embedded above.
Who remembers Sine Mora, then? It was billed as a big deal once upon a time, releasing on the PlayStation 3 and Vita with input from Suda51 if our memory is correct. Anyway, it kinda came and went but still has a cult following in some circles, and now THQ Nordic has announced that an extended version will release on the PlayStation 4 this...
Car crash entertainment
Surprisingly enjoyable Stuntman sequel Stuntman: Ignition looks like it's set to hit a jump ramp onto the PlayStation 4, as the game has popped up on European ratings firm PEGI's website. While the game did release on the PlayStation 3, it's likely that this is the PlayStation 2 version
The art of war
It's weird to think that since Darksiders was released in 2010, Vigil Games disbanded, THQ went bankrupt, and Nordic Games acquired the franchise. Not only that, but it has even reincorporated under the name THQ Nordic and overseen remasterings of both games. So while ex-Vigil Games employees are scattered around the place with...
Dark side of the moon
Darksiders: Warmastered Edition may have the worst name this side of Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition, but at least it isn't cutting any corners. Newly named publisher THQ Nordic has confirmed that the remaster will run at 1080p on the standard PlayStation 4 and will be enhanced with 4K support on the PS4 Pro. There's a...
