It turns out that miracles do happen as this morning THQ Nordic announced that Darksiders 3 is in the works and is going to launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018. The game is under development by Gunfire Games who is made up of many of the former Vigil Games team members who created the first two Darksiders games.
The game is set to be an open-world action-adventure that includes a focus on exploration and environmental puzzles, and will continue the series’ staple hack and slash combat with new protagonist, Fury, another of the four Horsemen and the sister to War and Death.
It’s set around the same time as the events of Darksiders 2, which was released almost five years ago, and will follow Fury’s quest to destroy unique physical versions of of the Seven Deadly Sins. You can watch the reveal trailer and see some screenshots from the game below.
I personally am a huge fan of the first two games and this franchise and I never thought we would see another one after THQ shut down. I’ll be picking this third entry up Day 1 but how about you? Are you excited for Darksiders 3? Let us know in the comments.
