And more like Darksiders, everyone knows and loves
The similarities between Darksiders III and Dark Souls do not stop at the DS initials. Darksiders Developer Gunfire Games has just added a new battle option to make the third game feel like its predecessors.
As part of the game's second major patch, Gunfire has introduced a "Classic" combat mode that is more aligned with the fighting mechanics of the original Darksiders and its sequel. There are two major changes: Classic mode has the built-in safety net to cancel attacks with a dodge, and items are used immediately after pressing the corresponding button.
Gunfire made many strategic changes with Darksiders III and modeling combat more similar Dark Souls was a divisive shakeup. It puts more emphasis on fighting, but it is also cluttered with the free-flowing quick action that people expect from Darksiders . Locking the player in animations may feel unnecessary penalties, especially considering how the previous games encouraged a more unfortunate style (for lack of a better descriptor).
It is part of Darksiders III now, and there is no harm in trying it. Gunfire says players can switch between standard and classic combat modes by loading a store. Classic combat will have no effect on difficulties or earn achievements / trophies. It's just an option for anyone who prefers it, feels more like old Darksiders and less like Dark Souls .
Darksiders III his second update is now available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Here are the full update notes:
- Added new option for Combat. When you load a save or start a new game, players are asked to choose between "Standard" and "Classic" matches.
