Darksiders 3 patch 1.05 is now live, introduces Classic Combat

Many people believed that Darksiders 3 would’ve achieved a lot higher status rank. However, the game has received lots of negative feedback due to its bad performance and multiple issues. With that being said, the 1.05 update is here to make the game even more interesting.

This namely “simple” change to the combat will allow players to get a glimpse of the previous Darksiders combat mechanics, rather than just dwelling in the new one. This patch brings a bit of the old look and feels into Darksiders 3.

As a player, you will get the chance to choose between Default and Classic combat mode. The Classic refers to the older Darksiders series, changing combat, allowing players to dodge and also use items immediately.

The new Darksiders 3 update also adds multiple improvements such as enhanced ledge detection, which will allow players to grab ledges easier.

Below you can find the official patch notes of Darksiders 1.05:
