A third installment in the Darksiders series has potentially been leaked via an Amazon listing.
The post’s official description sheds light on the possible new entry’s story, “Return to an apocalyptic Earth in Darksiders 3, 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 3 is the long-anticipated, third chapter in the critically-acclaimed Darksiders franchise.”
What players can expect in regards to gameplay is also teased within the retailer’s listed product features:
- 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
- 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
Gunfire Games, the team behind the Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition, has returned to develop Darksiders 3 per the listing. The title’s publisher, THQ Nordic, has yet to confirm or deny any of today’s rumors at this time.
If the report proves accurate, Darksiders 3 is currently slated for a December 31st, 2018 release for PS4, Xbox One, and the PC.
