THQ Nordic Announces Darksiders III
It’s exciting news for Darksiders fans today, as THQ Nordic announces the highly anticipated sequel to the franchise.
Darksiders III is currently in development by Gunfire Games, which is largely comprised of the original development team, Vigil Games.
Darksiders II was remastered and released on Xbox One back in 2015, with the original Darksiders having a remastered release towards the end of last year.
Lars Wingefors, Co-Founder of THQ Nordic commented on the announcement:
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 focus this time around is that of Fury, another of the four horsemen; having already played as Wrath and Death in the first two titles, respectively. Fury will return to an apocalyptic planet Earth in Darksiders III; a hack-n-slash action adventure, in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins. The Charred Council calls upon Fury to battle from the heights of heaven down through the depths of hell in a quest to restore humanity and prove that she is the most powerful of the Horsemen. As a mage, Fury relies on her whip and magic to restore the balance between good and evil.
The expansive, Darksiders III game world is presented as an open-ended, living, free-form planet Earth that is dilapidated by war and decay, and overrun by nature. Fury will move back and forth between environments to uncover secrets while advancing the Darksiders III story.
