THQ Nordic has been hard at work over the past few years, since the old THQ closed, in re-releasing some classic games, but they were also updating some games, like the original Darksiders. Today though, they have announced the all new Darksiders 3, with the game coming to PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in 2018.
The debut trailer is below, courtesy of IGN, check it out below.
Players will now take on the role of Fury, sister to War and Death, the previous games protagonists, as she is tasked with hunting down the physical representations of the Seven Deadly Sins. While Fury will use her whip as her main weapon, as she is also a mage, she will also have access to new powers and forms.
“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, THQ Nordic AB.
The company also announced that it is working with the team at Gunfire Games, which is largely comprised of the original creators of the Darksiders franchise, on development of the long and highly-anticipated project.
“The Gunfire team brings an intimate involvement with every aspect of the Darksiders franchise since its inception,” said Reinhard Pollice, Director of Business and Product Development, THQ Nordic. “There is simply no team better qualified to create Darksiders III, beginning with our unpredictable and enigmatic hero FURY – a mage who is considered the most powerful of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse!”
