Today, Nexon has launched the third-person action RPG Darkness Rises on both iOS and Android devices.

For those unfamiliar with Darkness Rises, it takes place in a dark fantasy world where players can create their own character to level up and progress through the game’s narrative. Additionally, you can sleuth through dungeons with friends in co-op to earn new rewards or instead opt to take them on in PvP. Nexon has provided some more fleshed-out details of the game along with what players can expect as follows:

In Darkness Rises, players will descend into the abyss following a dark linear storyline that will pit them against powerful enemies and hulking bosses that must be conquered in order to stop an evil force that’s spreading darkness across the world.

Darkness Rises features fast and fluid combat that is highly intuitive and provides players with the flexibility and customization to fit their playstyle. As players progress through the dark fantasy narrative they will evolve and level up their hero’s skills and abilities giving them the power to chain together punishing combos to defeat titanic bosses. Using the Soul Link ability, heroes can even harness the power of the vicious bosses to vanquish their enemies on their path to restore the balance of good to the world.

Other than the fast-paced action of Darkness Rises, one of the most noteworthy elements of the game is its spectacular voice cast. With actors such as Jo Wyatt (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt), Alec Newman (Divinity: Original Sin 2), and Carina Reeves (Xenoblade Chronicles), Darkness Rises has a cast that stacks up with the best and further allows players to feel like they are apart of the world. 

Below you can find the launch trailer for Darkness Rises which features snippets of both combat and character customization. Beneath that, you can find another video which features some of the voice actors from the game discussing their roles and showcasing themselves recording some of the lines that were used in Darkness Rises.

As mentioned, Darkness Rising is available today on the App Store for iOS and on Google Play for Android users.
