Shadowman: Darque Legacy Announced for PC, PS5, And Xbox Series

More than two decades after the original Shadowman

Out of complete nowhere, a third entry to the Shadowman franchise has been announced by game developer, Blowfish Studios in partnership with Valiant Entertainment via a trailer that reveals the game studio is working on Shadowman: Darque Legacy set to release on PC and consoles.

The next entry is set to be “brand-new, out-of-continuity” as a fresh start for the series as new and veteran players alike are inserted into the shoes of novice Shadowman Jack Boniface as he defends humanity against the terrors of the Deadside while conspiracy attempts to take over the land of the living. While we have no gameplay yet but we do know the game will feature melee combat and an “RPG-lite” progression system. Some of Shadowman: Darque Legacy‘s key features are listed below.

  • Enthralling Narrative: Pulse-pointed horror-action, with enthralling characters and dialogue
  • Spine-Chilling Horror: An atmosphere thick with nerve-fraying tension
  • Parallel Worlds: Explore detailed environments across two realms, creating unique gameplay opportunities
  • Punishing Combat: Challenging, yet approachable and rewarding melee combat
  • Action-Packed Boss Encounters: Test your mettle against monstrous, demonic bosses from the darkest pits of the Deadside

For those not in the know, the original Shadowman is a cult classic based on a Valiant comic that actually dates back to the late 90s when it first released on PS1, Nintendo 64, and the Sega Dreamcast and was followed up by a second entry, Shadow Man: 2econd Coming (2002) on PS2. After that, the series has kind of been dead all these years with only seeing a little life after a remaster on PC (Steam), PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in 2021 but looks like a third entry is the next step to reanimate the series back to life; if it’s good anyway.

Shadowman: Darque Legacy is slated to release on PC (Steam and the Epic Games Store), PS5, and Xbox Series X|S with no release date or window announced.
