Darksiders 3
« on: May 02, 2017, 08:02:16 AM »
Darksiders 3 Outed By Amazon For 2018, Features a Female Mage Named Fury



Darksiders III has been seemingly outed on Amazon for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, for release in 2018. The third game in the dormant series will apparently feature whip-wielding female mage Fury as its new protagonist, picking up where War and Death left off. Presumably Famine and Pestilence have popped down Tesco or something.

With Darksiders: Warmastered Edition and Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition remastering the first two games, you might have taken it for granted that Darksiders III would soon be a thing, but we didn't expect it to appear out of the blue like this, with screenshots and all. Of course, there's been no official announcement as yet, but it all looks very legitimate indeed.

Playing as Fury, you'll use her whip and magic, as well as adopting "various forms" according to the Amazon listing. These other forms grant access to new weapons, moves and additional traversal abilities, making it sound like Darksiders' signature Metroidvania gameplay will be alive and well for the sequel. The game's world is also an "open-ended, living free-form" one, if you go by the description.

Fury will also be pitted against the 'Seven Deadly Sins' and their servants, while the series' chunky, comic book style artwork will also be alive and well in Darksiders III. In development at Gunfire Games, Darksiders III is seemingly set for launch in 2018. For now, approach with a wee pinch of salt until an official announcment emerges, but this all looks pretty kosher to us, especially when you factor in the listing on the EU PSN for the 'Darksiders: Fury's Collection - War and Death', bundling the first two games for PS4.

I understand the whole..."preliminary" information and "pinch of salt" approach, but I'm definitely glad this franchise didn't just get buried with the mess that went down at THQ.

Props for (presumably) deciding to continue the storyline (Horsemen of the Apocalypse) and not just issue a complete re-imagining of the series.

This was one of those franchises on XB360 that really showed promise and improved massively from the first game to the second. Not too familiar with Gunfire Games, but hopefully they'll continue on that path.

BTW - just found as verified -

[Official Website]

Return to an apocalyptic Earth in Darksiders III, a hack-n-slash Action Adventure where players assume the role of FURY in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins.  The most unpredictable and enigmatic of the Four Horsemen, FURY must succeed where many have failed – to bring balance to the forces that now ravage Earth. Darksiders III is the long-anticipated, third chapter in the critically-acclaimed Darksiders franchise.

•Play as FURY - a mage who must rely on her whip and magic to restore the balance between good and evil on Earth! 
•Harness FURY’s magic to unleash her various forms – each granting her access to new weapons, moves and traversal abilities.
•Explore an open-ended, living, free-form game world in which FURY moves back and forth between environments to uncover secrets while advancing the story.
•Defeat the Seven Deadly Sins and their servants who range from mystical creatures to degenerated beings.
•Sit in awe of Darksiders signature art style – expansive post-apocalyptic environments that take the player from the heights of heaven to the depths of hell, dilapidated by war and decay and overrun by nature.

So far, the concept holds - even if it is a slight tangent from directly dealing with the four horsemen. Wondering how many core-Darksiders fans will call this "Darksiders 2.5" on account of that. Either way, glad to see it on its way, maybe we'll see some gameplay at E3?
