Darksiders 3 is a new game that has a new character and is being made by a relatively new studio. What could go wrong? These are the same people that worked on the previous Darksiders titles so I have no doubt in their capability to make a great game. We know that Darksiders 3 does not have a huge budget, nor does it have a huge team working on it and Gunfire Game is not shying away from these facts either.
While this is the era of games like God of War and Uncharted, it seems that the devs are confident with what they have made. Senior Designer Richard Vorodi explain the scope of the game and that it is intentionally being made the way it is. According to Vorodi:
I think there are enough big-budget blockbusters already. I think it’s great to release video games and say: Hey, there are still “honest” video games that just want to be fun. That’s exactly what we’ve been aiming for, if not unknowingly. Looking back, we now realize: Hey, we’re making video games! Darksiders 3 is a videogame game,
While indeed this is a smaller game as compared to other AAA titles that came out this year but that does not mean that it cannot compete with them. While the team might not be as huge as the one working on God of War and the marketing budget might be smaller than most AAA games that came out in 2018, there is still a huge fanbase of the franchise and I myself am a huge fan that has played both the previous games a couple of times.
If you are interested in learning more about the game then be sure to check out our previous articles that cover the lore and speculation concerning Darksiders 3 as well as other details that you might have missed. Cissy Jones is the voice actor behind Fury and she has done a pretty good job from what we have seen so far. The devs further touched on the matter at hand and had the following to say:
The term “AAA game” is information that a huge number of specialists worked on a given title for several years, and astronomical amounts were spent on the marketing campaign. However, for others there is still a place on the market, you can still achieve success if you have a decent product offering interesting ideas and experiences. If something is good for you, if it somehow appeals to you, you will choose it anyway, without looking if it is “AAA game” or not.
Darksiders 3 will be coming out on the 27th of November 2018. The game will release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. If you are a fan of the series then you should give it a go.
