It’s been almost five years since Darksiders 2 was released and just when we thought that was the end, THQ Nordic decides to blow our minds by releasing a reveal Trailer for Darksiders 3 along with its year of release.
Players will take on the role of Fury, sister of the four horsemen of the apocalypse in an open world action adventure that focuses on her hunting down the physical form of the seven deadly sins.
According to the announcement by THQ,
Return to an apocalyptic planet Earth in Darksiders 3, a hack-n-slash action adventure where players take on the role of Fury 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 3 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 3 story.
Darksiders III is currently in development and is scheduled for release in 2018 for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
