Amazon listed Darksiders 3 on their website today, complete with game information and screenshots. This is coming before an official reveal by studio Nordic, but they did say the series was going to live on. They recently released remasters of both Darksiders and Darksiders 2. Also worth noting is that Nordic noted they have several games in the works, including assets purchased from THQ’s bankruptcy.
The product page notes that you will play as a Mage named Fury. You have to “hardness her powers” which allow her to unlock various moves and techniques. An interesting aspect of the gameplay comes with your ability to “explore an open-ended, living, free-form game world in which Fury moves back and forth between environments to uncover secrets while advancing the story.”
The villains of the game will focus on the seven deadly sins.
The games overall description is as follows:
“Return to an apocalyptic Earth in Darksiders III, a hack-n-slash action-adventure where players assume the role of Fury in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins. The most unpredictable and enigmatic of the Four Horsemen, Fury must succeed where many have failed–to bring balance to the forces that now ravage Earth. Darksiders III is the long-anticipated, third chapter in the critically-acclaimed Darksiders franchise.”
They currently have a placeholder date of December 2018 so we can at least expect to see it sometime next year. This also normally means that an official reveal is coming soon, so expect to see a trailer and more official details. We will have it all right here on Cinelinx.
