Hey folks, we apologize for missing out on the news round-up last week, attending EGX took distracted me a little bit with covering the weekly news. This week, however, it’s back to normality and there is a fair bit to cover.
THQ Nordic have released a new trailer for the next installment in the Darksiders series. They have also announced that the game will be releasing on PC and Google Stadia on December 5th but the launch on consoles won’t be until February 14th, 2020. You can check out the new CGI trailer for Darksiders Genesis featuring the fourth and final Horseman Strife, along with his brother War, as the two Horsemen act out the Charred Council’s sentence on Malgros the Defiler.

Two Point Studios has announced a new release window for Two Point Hospital. The spiritual successor to Theme Hospital has been pushed back to launch sometime in the first half of 2020. The reason for this is because the devs appreciate how much the community wants the game on their favourite consoles and need more time to optimize the game for the best possible experience.
“Our community have asked for Two Point Hospital on consoles for a while now and we want to make sure we deliver a game that can be enjoyed to the fullest on all platforms”, said Mark Webley, Game Director at Two Point Studios. “This means we will need a little bit more time to optimise the game to ensure the best possible experience across all platforms.”
