Gunfire Games has released a new update for Darksiders III that introduces New Game Plus and a new, harder difficulty setting.
Following the update, players will gain access to the game’s New Game Plus option, titled Armageddon Mode, after defeating the final boss. There are a total of nine levels of Armageddon, with each completion unlocking the next level. Each level will up the difficulty and offer players new items to earn and new encounters to face.
“Items and their upgrade levels carry over, however the weapons must be reacquired through natural,” the developer adds. “Weapon levels are maintained, but still locked behind acquiring them via in game events.”
Prepare for Armageddon Mode! Take the adventure again in this free update to Darksiders III!
