To be honest, we wondered why we kept seeing so many remakes and HD versions of Darksiders, but it all makes sense now. Darksiders III was revealed on IGN today, and it is coming to the PS4 in 2018. This time you will play as Fury. She is one of the Four Riders of the Apocalypse, and she is the most powerful.
She is a mage and uses a whip to combat the Seven Deadly Sins. The Charred Council (do they actually do anything or only send others?) calls on her to purge them and their servants from a really messed version of Earth. As you might expect, she will be visiting all the supernatural hot spots after the apocalypse, including Heaven and Hell. For reference, this game will be set around the same time as Darksiders II.
The game is being published by THQ Nordic, and it will be developed by Gunfire Games. The team includes several members of the ex-Vigil team that worked on both of the previous games, so we will hopefully have the same feel and style that made the previous games so unique.
This is another pre-E3 announcement, and we hope there is more to come soon.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
