In a year when its parent company Embracer Group is making some big moves, THQ Nordic he clearly has some big plans for the future. The European publisher owns the rights to many classic series such as Alone in the Dark, Darksiders, and Gothic, and has a reputation for reviving or relaunching these classic franchises. As a result, it’s always surprising to learn what the eclectic publisher has in the works.
Alone in the Dark is back
Developer Three Fields Entertainment, which was founded by developers known for their work on Burnout and Need for Speed, announced Wreckreation. It will feature a massive Forza Horizon-like open world for players to explore. Players can also create crazy looking tracks which they can then race on. It is in development for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X.
After a split between 2K and former WWE 2K developer Yuke’s, AEW decided to partner with Yuke’s to create the first AEW console game. We got a deeper look during the show from commentator Tony Schiavone and AEW Women’s Champion Britt Baker, where we got to see the game in action. It will feature tag team matches, a career mode, create a fighter, online co-op play and more, no doubt giving 2K a run for its money. We’ll see whether or not AEW: Fight Forever is better than the WWE 2K series when it launches for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch. It will also be playable at Gamescom.
