Titan Quest is getting a physical release for consoles

Only a few weeks after releasing a brand new expansion pack after more than 11 years, it appears the amazing Titan Quest will be getting a physical release for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This is all according to GameFly, which may have leaked the surprise announcement ahead of time.

This will almost assuredly be the Anniversary Edition of the game that was released last year in honor of the game's 10th anniversary which brought back the multiplayer mode, made numerous visual upgrades to help it look good on modern machines, and threw in a ton of new enemies to fight and abilities to utilize.

Originally designed by Iron Lore Entertainment (who have since shut down with its members moving on to create Grim Dawn) and published by the defunct THQ, Nordic Games (now THQ Nordic) swooped in and bought the license.

Here's a quick synopsis of the game itself:

From Age of Empires co-creator Brian Sullivan and Braveheart writer Randall Wallace comes an innovative action role playing game set in ancient Greece, Egypt and Asia. The Titans have escaped their eternal prison, wreaking havoc upon the earth. The gods seek a hero who can turn the tide in an epic struggle that will determine the fate of both men and gods.

In this epic quest of good versus evil, players will encounter the greatest villains of Greek mythology, brave the attacks of Cerberus, and hazard the banks of the River Styx. Players will interpret the prophecies of the blind seer Tiresias, fight alongside Agamemnon and Achilles, and use the wiles of Odysseus to conquer this dark new adventure.

While THQ Nordic has been relatively quiet when it comes to announcing games for the Nintendo Switch, this is certainly one sweet surprise to have this enjoyable action RPG hit the platform. Of course, the game will apparently also be available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, so don't you fret, console fans! We will have more information once a proper announcement has been made.
