Darksiders 3 Patch #1 (December 1st) in Staging Branch

We have the first patch ready for you.
Here is the complete list of fixes:

  • Multiple improvements to help performance and loading. Performance improvements should also significantly reduce stuttering in high-density areas.
  • Updated Story mode to be more forgiving.
  • Adjusted invulnerability windows across all difficulties. The windows are consistent on Balanced, Challenging and Apocalyptic and even more significant on easy.
  • Modified hit indicators for better readability.
  • Added version number on the main menu.

  • Added FOV scaling to keep correct FOV on 21:9 monitors.
  • Fixed various crash issues.
  • Added Force Respawn functionality. This option is available in the game options menu. It will kill Fury and return her to the last Vulgrim Waypoint that you visited. This option is a last resort to be used if you think you are stuck in an area for whatever reason.
  • Added functionality on Force respawn that will force the hollows to re-equip to Fury. This is for the issue where Fury’s hollow abilities appear to have stopped working.
  • Fix for issue where Force blocks were getting stuck in Scar. If you have encountered this issue, it should destroy the stuck block, and if you come back to the area, it will reload the block in the correct starting area.
  • Fix for issue where certain stacked breakables wouldn’t break in Bonelands.
  • Fix for issue that would break Gluttony fight. Fix should also fix saves that had this issue.
  • Fixed multiple issues where players can get Fury into unintended locations or unintended locations without expected Hollows (in some cases Force Respawn may need to be used).
  • Reduced Fafnir enhancement’s damage output.

To access the branch we decided to put it in a staging branch first in order to make sure it doesnt break anything critical. The least we want is that people lose their progress or similar and there is always different behaviour out for users than in our testing environment.

Here is a guide on how to get the patch:
To access the beta please do the following:
Follow this guide https://media.thqnordic.com/TEMP/SteamBetaBranchGuide.jpg
Under Step 1 select Darksiders III
In step 4 you dont need a password
The branch for Step 6 is named publicstaging

Enjoy and keep the feedback coming. The easiest to track feedback and reports is our tracker here: https://redmine.thqnordic.com/projects/darksiders-iii-public-tracker/issues/new

thanks :steamhappy:
Not sure, but in game it doesn't look like the Fortifier and Obscurus changes stuck. Unless you have to start a new game for these to take effect.

Thank you so much for the extra work.

What about HDR,is it going to work properly now?

The random FPS drops and stutters are still prevelent :(

Just a question, is the patch already released ?

For me at least, steam didn't download anything.

Looking in the beta patch.

Camera - still awful. Really... Third game already, can you PLZ make THE CAMERA ANGLES NORMAL? Terrible zoom in on Fury while in the target lock mode and still horrible FoV around her while in that zoom. The situation gets more frustrating while the Sloth boss fight. Targeting simply doesn't work (properly).

Now we are stuck in respawn zones after death. You can't move and the only way to get out of this is to jump on spot to free yourself.
Mihai_89 Dec 1, 2018 @ 2:36am 
So what exactly is a beta patch ? And how do you download it ?

Sorry, didn't read the 1st post clearly enough, figured out how to download it. But won't steam just update darksiders 3 back to release phase every time i restart steam ?

Also, will the patch be available in normal stage not beta so can steam download it automatically ?

I don't mind waiting 1-2 days more if it will be released in normal stage and steam will download it automatically.

Is there any chance we will get the finishing moves in this game with some future patch?

You see the combat system is way more difficult in DS 3 than in first two games. When Fury is surrounded by multiple enemies (and horrible camera angles) there must be a chance to take one or two with one beautiful hit (I so miss the executions). Also the execution system should be as in DS1 imho (not the "item - chance_increase_system" from DS 2 I mean)

Releasing a patch in beta, so the people would test it for you and post feedbacks. Is this game still in beta testing or what? I have a feeling that you're not sure if you fixed anything in this patch, hence the beta optional update. I'm dissapointed.

Tried the patch and went back to Gluttony but it's still bugged.


Edit: Also, FOV scaling isn't good on 21:9.
