The first DLC for Gunfire Games’ Darksiders 3 is now available with The Crucible. This mode will be familiar to Darksiders 2 fans as it involves clearing waves and waves of enemies in a special arena. The trailer below gives a better idea of what to expect.
How The Crucible works is pretty simple. First, you battle through 25 waves. Surviving five of them without dying will provide a choice. Either leave with your reward, or carry on with the risk of dying and losing out. Defeating different Sins will unlock sets of new waves to fight through.
There are 101 waves of enemies to push through, and tougher opponents emerge as you progress. Rewards include new armour sets, new enchantments, and even “rare” crafting materials to bolster your weapons. Of course, if you defeat all 100 waves in one sitting, then there will be a “final challenge” to conquer. What does that unlock upon completion? You’ll have to play and find out.
