Following a leak this morning, THQ Nordic and Gunfire Games have officially announced that Darksiders III is currently in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and slated for release in 2018.
Here’s an overview of the game, via THQ Nordic:
Return to an apocalyptic planet Earth in Darksiders III, 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 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.
IGN will have a month-long of “IGN First” coverage of the game in May, starting with the reveal trailer.
