Red Faction and Darksiders Collections Coming This March [Updated]

Red Faction and Darksiders Collections Coming This March [Updated]

Richard Walker

Update Nordic Games has confirmed that only the Darksiders Collection will be heading to Xbox 360, while Red Faction Collection will only be available for PS3 and PC. They're scheduled to release in North America in Q2 2014 (between April and June).

The Darksiders Collection will carry a price of $39.99 in the US, while Nordic Games explained Red Faction Collection's absence on Xbox 360: "This is because according to Microsoft, the Collection did not comply with some of their guidelines for such a pack," the company wrote in a statement to Game Informer.

Original Story Having acquired the rights to both Darksiders and Red Faction from THQ, Nordic Games is planning collections of each for release next month. Both the Darksiders Collection and Red Faction Collection are listed on the Austrian company's site, specifically on its product page.

Darksiders Collection includes both Darksiders and Darksiders II, as well as the sequel's Season Pass, which enables players to download the Abyssal Forge and Belial's Pass DLC expansions. Red Faction Collection, meanwhile, includes the original Red Faction alongside Red Faction: Guerrilla, Red Faction: Armageddon, and Armageddon's Path of War DLC.

Both Darksiders Collection and Red Faction Collection are slated for release in the UK and Europe for £35 (or the equivalent price on the continent), with Amazon UK tagging the bundles for release on March 14th for Xbox 360 and PS3.

  • I already have the achievement but many will be say to turn back on the darksiders 2 stuff so they can finally complete the game
  • Pretty good deals. Might consider getting both.
  • Why no Red Faction 2? I'm really bummed about that...
  • I always wanted to try Darksiders. Maybe this is a sign.
  • the xbox edition will most likely not come with the original red faction that will be a playstation only thing.
  • Why compile a game where the servers are closed....sigh
  • Red Faction back in 2002 blew me away. Before the Geo-Mod engine, all the textures and actions were static. I killed tons of people with collapsing roofs and floors. :D
  • Both Darksiders are good challenges on Apocalyptic difficulty. The dungeons puzzle are more difficult on the first one tough.
  • I still have Red Faction for my original Xbox - Love that game! The only RF I enjoyed. Didn't enjoy the shift to 3rd person and was really disappointed in the later games. Not saying they were terrible, just not the style of Red Faction I had started with and loved. Not reading anywhere if it's in HD, but I would assume (hope) so!
  • @3 it has red faction 1, 2, Guerrilla and Armageddon. Anyway I'm looking forward to this although the two new ones are arse :P.
  • or we could just buy them seperately for half the price?
  • @11 how are you gonna buy Red Faction 1 & 2 on 360??
  • If only they'd bring the servers up so I wasn't stuck at 49/50.
  • The Red Faction bundle seems like a good deal. I already have both Darksiders.
  • Nordic should be fixing the fucking servers rather than still making a buck off of a game with an incomplete service.
  • How the fuck do these people find the nerve to put this shit out when they won't even fix the now unobtainable achievements in Darksiders 2...
  • Yes finally more people will hopefully play Red Faction Guerrilla online if they also put it on xbox so those few of us still on it can get the cheevos we need. Darksiders looks interesting though.
  • What are the odds that the servers be back online? They wouldn't release these titles if that weren't case, right?
  • well i have the first and will pick up the second one eventually. even if it does have an unobtainable achievement, shit won't stop me from playing it, if its a good game then thats all i care about. :)
  • As Jagermeister TX said, Darksiders II is broken: in-the-game items crafted by player cannot be shared with other players. According to this, two achievements are unobtainable. X360a is achievement-related service, I think you should warn people about it.
  • red faction guerrilla is an amazing game that if anyone missed it i highly highly recommend picking it up. if red faction or red faction 2 come to xbox 360 i hope they're available not in a bundle since i already own guerrilla and Armageddon, would really love to try out the originals
  • Hope Darksiders II comes with the two other DLC packs like the Death Rides Pack, Argul's Tomb? Or any weapon DLC? Hope they remember to add the Crucible Pass. -_- They can at least give us (all) of the DLC if they aren't going to put the servers back online.
  • As few smart guys already stated above me - this irrelevant to hunters and completionists since there are few achievements unobtainable on games among them. At least out of courtesy they could fix the simple shit so people can finally finish those games.
  • @10 The complete collection is only for PC and it includes RF:2 compared to the plain collection with no RF:2 on X360, which disappoints me.
  • OG Red Faction was incredible, whilst Red Faction had split screen multiplayer on par with Halo 2 at the time. Great memories. Shame Red Faction 2 isn't included.
  • i want a timesplitters hd bundle
  • Nordic have announced that they won't have a Red Faction Collection for Xbox 360. :(
  • They better have the servers up now since they know that people want to complete the online stuff for DK2! THIS BETTER BE IT!
  • Makes no sense TBH Why can't they release RF collection for 360 as well. And when will they release SC trilogy for 360?
  • Darksiders collection? Hell yeah! sign me up!
  • Red Faction collection? The games worth collecting are not even in that fucking collection, 1 & 2 were the interesting ones
  • And my bad i now see it came with the good ones, but only for ps3 lol :)
  • RF2 apparently not in the collection because it was "never ported to home consoles." Funny, I only ever plyed it on PS2...
  • MS is ridiculous with all their special "guidelines" to release stuff on their console. And Nordic games is a bit retarded if they can't release one of the best RF games in RF2 -
  • I am probably the only person who really liked Red Faction Armageddon
  • Just announced: Darksiders 2 is back online and the achievements are obtainable! Source:
