SHADOWMAN: Darque Legacy

Developer Blowfish Studios has announced SHADOWMAN: Darque Legacy, a new “spine-chilling” third person action-adventure set in the Shadowman universe.

SHADOWMAN: Darque Legacy is launching across Windows PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and PS5. A release date wasn’t announced.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus its reveal trailer:

For centuries, the Boniface family has carried a dark legacy – the mantle of the Shadowman, walker between worlds, sworn to preserve the veil between life and death. Now, novice Shadowman Jack Boniface is thrust into the path of a growing evil that threatens everything his predecessors fought for. Building upon the decades of Shadowman tales told within Valiant Comics, this new chapter is an original story developed in partnership with Valiant Entertainment.

In SHADOWMAN® Darque Legacy, duel against a horrifying cast of enemies in challenging, visceral combat. Clash with the fanatical Brethren cultists, from hammer-wielding brutes to sorcerous necromancers, and battle truly wretched creatures that have slithered forth from the most desolate depths. Deliver brutal and bloody finishers with a range of Shadowman weapons.

Explore diverse locations – traverse vivid, detailed locations in the Liveside, and wade through their dark reflections in the hellish realm of the Deadside. Shift between realms to solve unique environmental puzzles.

Ascend through an RPG-lite character progression system, upgrading your character to acquire new skills, and become a Shadowman worthy of fear.
