Our videos of Battle Chasers: NW

Even if you're not into comic books, you must have heard of Joe Madureira back in 2010, when the first Darksiders game was released. It was developed by Vigil Games, a studio the famous artist had co-founded, but the demise of THQ precipitated the end of their collaboration. Madureira and some of his former coworkers could not leave it at that though, so they decided to open a brand new studio, Airship Syndicate. Battle Chasers: Nightwar is the result of their hard work, a love letter to comic books and turn-based J-RPGs that you'd be crazy to miss this week. Check out our videos inside.

Note: The minor frame drops you might see seem to be due to Mirillis Action!, as the game was running in 1440p when we recorded the first 4 videos.

Note 2: The last video shows the very first dungeon of the game in normal mode. The same dungeon can also be seen in our third extract, as we were playing in hard mode. As you may notice, dungeons are procedurally generated.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And plenty of those examples are online PVP games too. Quake Champions probably isn't one of them :D (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MrWhite: No, not really. There are loads of examples of games with microtransactions that don't influence the game design or pollute the basic user experience. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Could you imagine back when arena shooters like Q3A were very popular, and the cunts introduced pay to win bollocks like EA, 2k, Activision et al are doing? Imagine what that would have done. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite meanwhile on the other end, some kid who just bought the game is playing as Wigan, but they're playing like Real Madrid and giving your superstars a tanking. Time to dip into your pocket to buy packs (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Online play is so heavily scripted, your team inexplicably feels like a bunch of fat pub players in a sunday league side, and you're supposed to be in control of world class athletes (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I mean, if you look at Fifa online, I've been saying for years that thing is a fix and my mates looked at me like I was mental. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: But you know it will in some shape or form. It hurts the game by default just by being there in the same way microtransactions and all that other shite does. (4 Hours ago)
