Titan Quest arrives on consoles

THQ Nordic brings the old-school mythological hack-and-slash looter to the console realm
By: Derek Strickland | Gaming News | Posted: Mar 23, 2018 6:11 pm

The remastered rendition of the classic ARPG Titan Quest is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

 

 

In an age where action RPGs like Grim Dawn, Path of Exile, and Diablo III typically rule the market, it's great that companies like THQ Nordic reminding gamers about old-school hack-and-slashers that helped define the genre. While that mantle will pretty much be defined by the original Diablo game, Titan Quest was a big mover that provided a unique ancient setting infused with Greek mythology. And now modern gamers can experience what PC players in the 90s know quite well.

 

Titan Quest is now available on PS4 and Xbox One with newly enhanced graphics and online multiplayer action, but couch co-op isn't in just yet. The Nintendo Switch port is also on the way but hasn't been finalized just yet--it may even be the first real ARPG on the console unless Diablo III is actually coming to the system soon.
