Earlier today, THQ Nordic, the publishers behind the Darksiders franchise, announced three major titles set to be released in 2017.
The first announcement is Battle Chasers: Nightwar, an RPG inspired by “classic” RPGs. It has a battle system that harkens back to those found in early RPGs with an added twist: it has a two-tiered mana system and turn-based initiatives. Players will select from three heroes as they begin their journey of survival in the isolated town of Harms Way. Battle Chasers: Nightwar will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch on October 3.
Next up from the studio Piranha Bytes comes a new open world action-RPG titled ELEX. Taking place in a post-apocalyptic world laced with science-fantasy elements, Magalan is a planet where magic and mechs both thrive. After a meteor strikes Magalan, war erupts across the planet. Survivors are fighting for the mysterious element Elex, which can power up machines, magic, and more. ELEX will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 17.
Last on the list is a multiplayer game that blends elements from the RTS and top-down RPG genres in an epic fantasy world. In Spellforce 3, players will return to the world of Eo and experience the catastrophic events that have taken place before the Convocation. Spellforce 3 is a PC exclusive coming on December 7.
All three titles are now available for pre-order for PC on Steam and GOG.
