UPDATE: As suspected, a new trailer confirming Darksiders III has been released. The game is coming in 2018, though no exact date was specified. You can check out the new trailer from IGN right below:
THQ Nordic and Gunfire Games is the duo that’s apparently working on the Darksiders franchise. While there have been hints from Nordic that a new Darksiders was on its way, we now know for sure it’s coming. The new game will be titled Darksiders III and will be featuring the female protagonist, Fury.
Thanks to an Amazon listing, Darksiders III has been leaked. The website confirms the new game will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC. There is a release date (Dec. 30, 2018) for the game, but that is certainly a placeholder. Perhaps there will be an official announcement from THQ Nordic soon, given the news.
In Darksiders III, gamers will assume the role of Fury. She is a mage who possesses powerful magic and a devastating whip. Gamers must “restore the balance between good and evil” on Earth. Fury will have many forms, creating a unique and diverse experience. Each form will provide access to new weapons, moves and traversal abilities.
Darksiders III will feature an “open-ended, living, free-form game world” for players to explore. You will move back and forth between environments to discover secrets and progress. This is an interesting structure and will be great to gain further clarity on how the world functions.
While players will move from world to world, they must conquer the Seven Deadly Sins. Their servants possess enemies like mystical creatures to degenerated beings. Additionally, the art style gamers know from previous games will be in Darksiders III. Players will witness “expansive post-apocalyptic environments that take the player from the heights of heaven to the depths of hell, dilapidated by war and decay and overrun by nature.”
There is no official release date for Darksiders III quite yet. Given the leak from Amazon, I expect THQ Nordic to make a formal announcement very soon. Perhaps new screens or a reveal trailer will arrive as a result of the leak. All we know is Darksiders III is a thing and will be coming soon.
