Darksiders, Red Faction collections coming this year

But the Red Faction collection isn't coming to Xbox 360 because it doesn't comply with Microsoft's guidelines.

by

Publisher Nordic Games has revealed it's releasing collections of the Darksiders and Red Faction games.

While the Darksiders collection for Xbox 360 appeared on Amazon UK with a March 14 release date, it will not be released until sometime between April and June this years, Nordic Games has told Eurogamer.

It will include Darksiders, Darksiders II, and the season pass, and is currently listed for £34.99 (about $60). It will release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Red Faction Complete will include Red Faction, Red Faction 2, Red Faction Guerrilla, Red Faction Armageddon, and its Path to War DLC. Nordic Games' website also lists a Red Faction Collection for PC which doesn't include Red Faction 2. It will release on PC and PS3 for £24.99 (about $40), but not Xbox 360 because "the Collection did not comply with some of their [Microsoft's] guidelines for such a pack," Nordic said.

Nordic also clarified that the collections will not include any new content, but that it is currently working on removing Games for Windows Live from the PC version of Red Faction.

Nordic bought the rights for both franchises last year during THQ's bankruptcy auction.

This means that there won't be any other Darksiders game? What about the other two gods of apocalypse remaining?

I got both the Darksiders and Red Faction Guerilla/Armageddon in the THQ Humble Bundle sale and the older ones are on GoG, where I might buy them on a sale, so I'm good. 

I'm more looking forward to the Far Cry The Wild Expedition bundle with all Far Cry games included. I'll get that one when it goes on sale at 75 % off.

My initial reaction was how can we get a Darksiders collection after only two games, but then I remembered I've been trying to get hold of them both for over a year now, so yeah this might be for me. But hold up! £10 more for two less games? That doesn't seem right.

Having said all that, I've just checked and Amazon are selling each Darksiders game for less than £12 a piece, so no dice.

Red Faction was actually one of my favorite FPS I've ever played. The story and music was well done...

I really hope Nordic games fixed the server issue with 360 version of Darksiders 2, so people can get their last achievement for that game.

"The Red Faction collection on pc doesn't include Red Faction II"  Fine by me.  That one almost killed the franchise.  RF1 was a long game with lots of geo mod, and was fun as hell.  RFII was REALLY short, the weapons weren't as good, the geo mod was almost non-existent, and the regenerating health ruined the game.


That said, they better update RF1.  It does not run properly on Win7 64bit without the fan made Pure Faction launcher.

Darksiders was really well done and I hope this makes more people play it. Glad to hear their getting rid of GFWL, seems they're doing the IP's right.

I wouldn't mind seeing a ps4/XB1 game that plays like Gorilla. I had a lot of fun with that game and open world destruction. though I wish there were more building to destroy and vehicles to ride (I want to fly a plane into a building full of enemies. maybe could have use some online co op missions and maybe a settting were the user can switch between 1st person and 3rd person.

I'm only excited for the possible hope that there may be a Darksiders 3 at some point in our future. *crosses fingers*

Umm...Red Faction collection on PC will include RF 2. The Collection for PS3 won't. Double check man, double check it!

Hope they fix Guerrilla on the PC at least though, the game has got some serious issues with modern hardware.

Pretty sure you can get both DS games cheaper on Steam right now.

I already have both Darksiders (which are awesome games) and the last Red Faction game.


Would be nice to have all the collection with Steam ^_^

@p3p1n03dg4r The remaining riders have fallen when THQ's own apocalypse happend. The license may be in new hands but I doubt we will ever see the third and fourth horsemen riding forth.

@Grimkillah Oh, yes indeed! We cannot have people not getting their last achievement. What a terrible fate that would be.

@DrKill09 Assuming they're selling the version that's on GOG, it oughta run just fine.

I loved gorillas destruction I wished more games employed physics like that.

@sunbeam4  

Hell yeah, red faction 1 and 2 were both incredible games at their time. Red Faction 2 brought destruction to an unheard of level.

@koospetoors  Yeah, Guerrilla would work some times, and others it would just keep crashing.


Like I said in another comment, RF1 doesn't like modern hardware either.  You need the Pure Faction mod to run it properly.

@unreal101 that would be without season pass. does that mean that they not gonna include the 2 others DLCs for DS2 ?

@acryion Would also be nice if they could fix all the bugs from the Draksiders 1 steam version ;D

@roman4545 @HurvlThank you! I'm having very much fun waiting, since I have lots of games to play in the meantime.

@Hurvl It may not affecting you, but it does affecting my enjoyment, and if my lone voice would make an impact on their decisions, then why not. It is not like affecting you in any ways.

@noladem504 @sunbeam4  Who are you kidding?  Red Faction 2 ruined geo mod.  In the first, you could destroy pretty much the entire map.  You could literally make your own path.  RF2 reduced geo mod to some shards coming off certain walls, limited you to a linear path, and there were many vehicle sections that you didn't actually control, unlike the first.


On top of that, RF2 removed the online multiplayer the first had on pc.  I HATED Red Faction 2.
