THQ Nordic confirmed today that Darksiders III, the newest game in the Darksiders series from last generation, will launch this year on November 27.

Darksiders III was announced last year after an Amazon listing leaked its existence. THQ Nordic announced that the game was being developed by Gunfire Games, a studio made up primarily of developers from former Darksider development studio Vigil Games. THQ Nordic acquired the Darksiders license a bit after THQ closed down and started talking about a possible new Darksiders in 2013.

In addition to the standard edition, Darksiders III is also being sold as a $150 Collector's Edition, which you can see below, and contains a soundtrack and an artbook.

Monster Hunter: World has been a huge hit for Capcom; the lauded entry in the long-running series has shipped over 8 million copies since its January release, making it the best-selling game in the company’s history. While much of that success has been attributed to the series finally returning to consoles, Capcom also pledged to bring Monster Hunter: World to PC – and it turns out it’s coming sooner than expected.

Today Capcom announced that Monster Hunter: World releases on PC on August 9 via Steam. Unlike many PC ports, Monster Hunter: World will still cost the full $60; a $70 deluxe version is also available, and contains some extra armor sets, gestures, and other cosmetics. The PC version features 4K support along with a host of new graphics settings, as well as controller support. You can check out the full minimum and recommended specs at Capcom Unity, or check out the spiffy new trailer below.

Chasm Gets Official July Release Date

Chasm Gets Official July Release Date

Chasm is a Metroidvania–meets-procedurally-generated-map action/platformer, and one thing that's not random is its release date – the game is coming out on July 31 (PS4, Vita, PC).

The game follows the style of Castlevania, etc. where players need to find certain power-ups to open up new areas of the map. The procedurally generated aspect comes into play each time you start a new campaign. A map is then designed with an overall flow in mind, keeping things fresh while still preserving the game's core principles and flow.

For more on the game, check out this interview with the game's producer, James Petruzzi.
