Fans of Darksiders rejoice! THQ Nordic and Gunfire Games had some pretty awesome news yesterday when they announced that the third entry into the video game franchise was currently in the works, to be released sometime in 2018.
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.
According to IGN, the open-world action-adventure will be set at the same time as the events of Darksiders II. The game will have a good deal of exploration and environmental puzzles and will also feature the same hack and slash combat from the previous games.
The storyline of Darksiders III will follow Fury and her quest to “destroy unique physical versions of the Seven Deadly Sins.” As a huge fan of the franchise, I have to say it all sounds like sweet music to my ears.
Darksiders III will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2018. You can go ahead and pre-order the game here. Check out the announcement trailer below, and let us know if you plan on getting your hands on Darksiders III.
