Darksiders III Release Trailer

“The launch of Darksiders III marks the triumphant return of a classic action-adventure franchise – it has been a true labor of love for the teams at THQ Nordic and Gunfire Games,” said Reinhard Pollice, Darksiders Executive Producer and Business and Product Development Director, THQ Nordic. “Like much of the team, I started out as a fan of Darksiders, playing on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 when it was first introduced in 2010. Launching Darksiders III and both of its prequels on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One X today – in 2018 – means we are not only FINALLY satisfying an exceedingly patient and loyal fanbase but also introducing a whole new generation of gamers to the fantastical Darksiders universe!”

“Our team has spent over a decade bringing the story of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to life, and we still feel like we’re just getting started,” said David Adams, Darksiders Co-Creator and President, Gunfire Games. “Darksiders III has been so much fun to make, and we sincerely hope our fans love it as much as we do.”

About Darksiders III

Players return to an apocalyptic planet Earth in Darksiders III, a hack-n-slash action-adventure where players take on the role of FURY in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins. The Charred Council calls upon FURY to battle from the heights of heaven down through the depths of hell in a quest to restore the balance between good and evil and prove that she is the fiercest of the FOUR HORSEMEN. FURY is a mage, her form evolving throughout gameplay and with it, her powers and weaponry. The expansive Darksiders III game world is presented as an open-ended, living, free-form planet Earth, dilapidated by war and decay, and overrun by nature. FURY will traverse back and forth between environments, battling other-worldly creatures and unlocking puzzles while advancing the Darksiders story.S

Twitch Announces Native Android Subscribing at an Increased Cost

Twitch has just announced a new way for users of the Twitch App on Android to subscribe! Yet, it comes with a catch.

Android app users will now be able to subscribe directly within the app without having to leave to a mobile web browser to complete their purchases. This will also allow the use of paying with the Google Wallet, along with all of its saved payment methods.

The price of an in-app Android Tier 1 sub will be $5.99. This is a $1.00 increase to subscribing via the web, non-natively through the Twitch App. Twitch explains the change “Google charges a 30% fee for all purchases made through native in-app payments. To ensure that you make the same amount of revenue per Sub, we had to raise the price to make up for the platform fee. Note that just as with any other processing fee, Twitch will share in the responsibility for paying this fee. We are no longer able to keep our in-app browser experience due to policy changes on Android.”

At this time only Tier 1 subscription is available through the application. Yet, Twitch has stated that viewers have the option to subscribe at $4.99 and at all three tiers on their mobile device by using a mobile browser or going directly to streamer’s subs page. If you’re on the Twitch App, and you happen to click on a Twitch Sub Page link, you’ll be directed to the web version.

In short, it seems like the Android Marketplace may have put this pressure on Twitch to make a native way to purchase subscriptions. That way Google can collect royalties. I would encourage Twitch streamers to let viewers on Android about this change and the options they have.

No announcements on the iOS front at this time. Twitch will update if anything changes.
