Darksiders 3 Update 1.05 Brings Classic Combat, Level Cap Raise, Performance Optimizations And More

Darksiders 3 is not a perfect game as it has its flaws and issues. However, devs are working to deal with these issues and in an effort to make the game more accessible, Gunfire Games has rolled out Darksiders 3 Update 1.05 that brings Classic combat and more.

Let’s start with the improvements that Darksiders 3 Update 1.05 brings. Darksiders 3 Classic Combat option allows the combat to “feel more like previous Darksiders”.

Furthermore, the Darksiders 3 Update 1.05 brings improved ledge grab detection, performance optimizations, increased level cap to 200 and rebalanced leveling curve post level 80 as part of improvements to Darksiders 3.


  • Added new option for Combat. Upon loading a save or starting a new game, players will be prompted to choose between “Default” and “Classic” combat. “Classic” mode should feel more like previous Darksiders titles allowing Fury to dodge interrupt her attacks as well use items instantly. “Default” mode is the original combat mode for Darksiders III. The option can be changed at any point in gameplay options while playing. This has no other effects on difficulty or achievements.
