THQ Nordic plays it down
The history of Darksiders on Nintendo platforms dates back to 2012 when Darksiders II was released on the Wii U as a launch title. Years later, at the very end of the system's life, THQ Nordic followed up with Darksiders: Warmastered Edition. The question now is, will this hack and slash action-adventure series - drawing...
"Contrary to a couple of online rumours, Wii U version is on its way"
THQ Nordic has confirmed that the Wii U version of Darksiders: Warmastered Edition is still on its way, despite rumours that it had been canned. The updated version of Darksiders will launch worldwide on May 23rd, with a price of $19.99 / £14.99. Here's the full PR: Contrary...
The war goes on
With the Switch only about two weeks away from launch, the upcoming release schedule for the Wii U has been looking quite dire. Darksiders: Warmastered Edition was a release that was initially scheduled for Wii U, but was delayed due to technical problems and subsequently missed the November release the game received on other...
Death by a thousand delays
THQ Nordic claimed headlines and some goodwill a few months ago when it confirmed Darksiders: Warmastered Edition for the Wii U, helping Nintendo gamers catch up after the previous release of Darksiders II on the system. Though it'll naturally be less flashy than on PS4 and Xbox One - for example 30fps instead of 60 - it's...
Not long ago retail listings suggested that Darksiders: Warmastered Edition had been delayed until 22nd November. A press release from publisher THQ Nordic has now confirmed that's the case, though the detail is a little different for Wii U owners. The 22nd November date is accurate for PS4, Xbox One and Wii U, but while the Sony and...
Just by a month, though
Darksiders II was one of the first major third party games to be available on the Wii U, and it seemed to have been quite well received. Naturally, it stood to reason that its predecessor, Darksiders, would likely show up on the console someday, and it's now set to arrive as Darksiders: Warmastered Edition. The game was...
Half that of PS4 and Xbox One, unsurprisingly
We really liked Wii U launch title Darksiders II; while it pays homage to the Zelda series, it adds its own unique flavour as a grittier take on the action-RPG dungeon crawler. We recently reported that a remastered Darksiders would be coming to the Wii U, too, as Nordic Games have taken over the reigns...
Before Death, there is War
Last month, Nordic Games mentioned how they had a game coming that Action/Adventure fans would appreciate. Many made the guess that this would be a port of Darksiders, considering that Darksiders II already came to the console early on. It appears that this turned out to be true, as Nordic Games has confirmed that they are...
Red Faction, MX and Homeworld also find new homes
Yesterday we reported that THQ had sold off most of its remaining assets to other parties, however it was not clear which ones had been picked up and which had fallen by the wayside. New information has come through today and we're very happy to inform you that the Darksiders franchise was salvaged...
Will the horsemen ride again?
When THQ bit the dust a while back, Vigil Games was one of the companies which didn't get purchased. This seemed to spell the end of the popular Darksiders franchise. However, hope is not lost. It would appear that Crytek USA CEO David Adams has expressed an interest in purchasing the IP he and many members of his...
There's hope for Darksiders yet
THQ auctioned off most of its assets last month, resulting in several studios and IPs being picked up by the highest bidders. Sadly, it appeared that the Darksiders franchise was dead and buried due to its studio, Vigil Games, not finding a suitable bidder. However, it looks as though there may still be hope for...
Sometimes all good things must come to an end
A few weeks back THQ sold off its assets to the highest bidders. This lead to various THQ studios finding new homes; THQ Montreal for example is now a part of Ubisoft and Relic, the developer of Company of Heroes is now a branch of SEGA. However not all development studios found a new home, and as they...
