THQ Nordic announces Darksiders III

Darksiders III officially revealed with debut trailer

Following the Amazon leak earlier yesterday, THQ Nordic and Gunfire Games have officially revealed Darksiders III - a game that really shouldn't, but somehow miraculously still, exists. The game's lead is a character named Fury, who is one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

The listing suggested that Darksiders 3 was a real thing and that an official announcement might come soon.

With the franchise now in the hands of THQ Nordic, it will be interesting to see if they are able to fully realise the potential of the game's formula.

Five years after the release of Darksiders II, the new game will be set around the same events and will pit the palyers against the Seven Deadly Sins. It is good to know for sure that this game is coming.

After playing as War - one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse - in the first game (which was released in 2010), and Death in Darksiders II (2012), players will get to hack and slash their way as their equally badass sister Fury in the upcoming Darksiders III.

Darksiders III will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2018.

Lars Wingefors, Co-Founder of THQ Nordic added: "As promised, we have taken our time to ensure that this next Darksiders will be everything action-adventure gamers and especially Darksiders loyalists could dream of and more".

The lack of things to do and the repetitiveness held back "Darksiders 2" from being an even greater action RPG game of the sort, though it was still on the greatest titles in its time. According to how the first trailer (courtesy of IGN First), "Darksiders 3" will be set on the same timeline with "Darksiders 2" though the story will thrust Fury into the task of defeating the Seven Deadly Sins.

The game's official website is live with a few additional details.
