Blade of Darkness looks new again thanks to modding


8:00 PM on 01.22.2014



Last year, I found out about Severance: Blade of Darkness, a hack-and-slash PC game from 2001. What a gem. While its combat -- the sort of calculated action we adore in From Software's Souls games -- continues to hold up all these years later, the same cannot be said for the dated graphics. Nothing mods can't fix, apparently, and here's an impressive one called Blade of Light.

Building on the work of ENB, modders have added a whole mess of lighting effects that completely transform the look of the game. Watch the trailer above -- words can't do this justice.

"Now the light itself is a factor to account for in the player strategies. An archer standing against the sun will be hard to see. Circle your enemies so the light doesn't hit you in the eyes or you'll be fighting silhouettes. Fog is really dense so watch your step, it's a long way down... The intention is to create a strong contrast between light and Darkness."

I need to reinstall Blade of Darkness ASAP.

You might be tempted to call Ronin 'Kill Bill: the Videogame'

Devolver Digital has a penchant for picking up clever game jam submissions and giving them a chance to grow into fully-realized titles. Titan Souls is a fine example, and it would have never had any exposure outside of t...more

Toukiden: Kiwami has better abs on PlayStation 4

Between Toukiden: The Age of Demons and Freedom Wars, I'm slipping way behind on hunting/action games. Probably for the best, in the former case: Omega Force is coming out with an expanded version, Toukiden: Kiwami, that incl...more
