Darksiders 3 leaked, first details and screenshots here [Update]

Darksiders 3 is a thing, and it's being developed by the makers of the original games.


THQ Nordic today announced DarkSiders 3 is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It is slated for release in 2018.

“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,” said Lars Wingefors, co-founder and group CEO of THQ Nordic said in the press release.

According to developer Gunfire Games, Fury is the most "unpredictable and enigmatic of the Four Horsemen," and as reported below, a mage who must "rely on her whip and magic" to restore the balance between good and evil.

Original Story:

Earlier today, Amazon has inadvertently leaked Darksiders 3. The retailer pushed live the game's product page (via Gematsu) ahead of any official announcements, revealing the core features and giving us the first look at it through screenshots and concept art.

The game stars Fury, a female mage who uses a whip and magic abilities. Fury has different forms, each allowing her access to new moves, weapons, and traversal abilities.

The page describes the world as "open-ended" and "free-form." Fury is on a quest to restore the balance between good and evil. Her goal is to defeat the Seven Deadly Sins and their servants. By the sounds of it, it looks to be set after the events of the first game.

Darksiders 3 is developed by Gunfire Games, the studio made up of many former Vigil staff, the very developers responsible for the first two Darksiders. The art style and visuals clearly match the unique look of the Darksiders games, as you can see in the screenshots above.

The Amazon page has a December 31, 2018 placeholder date, but it does confirm PC, PS4, and Xbox One as platforms. THQ Nordic, which currently has the rights to the IP, is publishing.
