Darksiders 3: Leaning Towards a Tighter Experience
Darksiders 2 may not even be out yet but that hasn’t stopped lead designer, Hadyn Dalton, from waxing lyrical about a third instalment of the series. According to the man from Vigil, if Darksiders 2 sells more than 4 million copies, the developer all but guarantees the third instalment.
However fans should not expect the great sprawling world from Darksiders 2. Darksider 3 will more likely be a tighter, more refined world. The idea behind the change is to create a more polished end product, Dalton believes that by reducing the scope, the developers will be able to deliver a a more focused experience for gamers.
But what does this say about Darksiders 2? Reports have appeared that say that the world of Darksiders 2 is over four times larger than that of the original Darksiders game. Dalton believes that in a smaller world, there would be more interaction. Does this mean that Darksiders 2 will be empty? It seems that perhaps developers should be more careful about talking up sequels before the current game has come out. Any talk of the next game draws excitement away from the current one.
Regardless of the hype for the third game there are still many people who are just interested in seeing what this next instalment brings to the table. And the question remains just how important are animations, a destructive environment, and those finer details to the die hard fans who love what is at the core of the game. Darksiders 2 is expected to arrive on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. What is really exciting in that Darksiders 2 will be one of the first games to test the Wii U’s muscle, when it comes out at the end of the month.
