Darksiders III will be coming to Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Darksiders III, the sequel to Darksiders II, is going to be released later in 2018, the publishers confirmed. The sequel came as a surprise, since THQ had closed down and this had cast doubt on the possibility of any sequel or prequel to the Darksiders franchise. However, it is now becoming a reality, after Nordic games bought the rights to the series and became THQ Nordic in the meantime.
The Darksiders series sees the player in the role of one of the horsemen of the Apocalypse. Unlike the first two games, the sequel will for the first time feature a female player character, named Fury. Fury does not happen to be one of the original horsemen of the apocalypse, but we will find out why the publishers decided to take this route. A female character may be the needed catalyst to freshen the franchise and garner interest in the games. Similar to the previous two games, the player’s aim is to destroy the Seven Deadly Sins, personified as powerful enemies with numerous henchmen.
