New, 14 comments

Nordic Games, the Vienna-based company that purchased rights to Darksiders, Red Faction and other properties from THQ in 2013, is now the owner of the Men of Valor brand, according to an announcement from the publisher.

Men of Valor is a 2004 first-person shooter set during the Vietnam War. It was developed by 2015, the studio that also worked on 2002's Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, and published by Vivendi.

"With the addition of this IP, our shooter portfolio becomes enriched with a real classic," said Reinhard Pollice, business and product development director at Nordic Games, in a release. "It feels great to have a piece of FPS-history under our umbrella. 2015 Games produced many talented developers, including the founders of Infinity Ward and Respawn Entertainment amongst others, shaping the first person shooter genre with their games."

Nordic Games said in an email that it was not ready to announce its plans for the Men of Valor property.

In addition to owning rights to Darksiders and Red Faction, Nordic also has de Blob, MX, Painkiller, U Draw, Titan Quest, Supreme Commander and the THQ trademark in its portfolio. The publisher confirmed earlier this year that it plans to bring a remastered version of Darksiders 2 to current-generation consoles.
