The developers of Darksiders 3 have patched the game to make it feel more like previous Darksiders games.
The game’s second update was released to the PC version yesterday, 20th December. Now, when you load a save or start a new game, you’ll pick from default or classic combat. The developers said classic mode should feel more like previous Darksiders games in that it lets Fury dodge interrupt her attacks and use items instantly. Default mode is, as you’d expect, the original combat mode for Darksiders 3.
Meanwhile, the update added a few new checkpoints (one of the criticisms of the game revolved around its brutal checkpoint system).
