Darksiders 3 (2018; PS4/XB1/PC)

Accidentally leaked by Amazon.



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
It's the next IGN First.



The game is set to be an open-world action-adventure that includes a focus on exploration and environmental puzzles, and will continue the series’ staple hack and slash combat with new protagonist, Fury.

It’s set around the same time as the events of Darksiders 2, which was released almost five years ago, and will follow Fury’s quest to destroy unique physical versions of of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Gunfire Games’ development team includes multiple ex-Vigil Games employees who worked on Darksiders and Darksiders 2, including the Game Director, Executive Producer, Technical Director, Lead Environment Artist, and more.

Since the studio’s formation in 2014, they’ve worked on titles including Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition and Chronos, which was one of IGN’s nominees for the best VR game of 2016.

Lars Wingefors, Co-Founder and Group CEO at THQ Nordic AB said, “After countless rumors, a major catalogue acquisition, and even a corporate re-brand, the team at THQ Nordic is thrilled to finally confirm plans for Darksiders III.”

I still have to finish 1 (that's bc, correct?) and I have the One version of definitive or whatever of 2, but yet to touch. I think it was real cheap...

I've really enjoyed the first two in the series, so I'm very excited about a third.

That looked pretty good. More of the same, though Iíve only played a minute of first. Gotta make time. This looked puzzler, slasher, rpg, third person goodness. Though donít know last time I played third person. A little of one of the new Tomb Raiders but that was awhile ago...

Biomutant, initially set for a 2018 release, and Darksiders 3, which was also looking at launch this year, may also be facing a delay. The two titles are "still under evaluation for setting a release date."

Due to a glorious glitch, this bundle if you buy it now ($39.99), or bought it before, also comes with the deluxe edition of Darksiders 3 (which goes for $89.99 by itself). Obviously a mistake, but it does work. Hurry.
Edit : Dead, and won't be honored. Refund will be issued.

2 is way better than 1 in my opinion. Really good Zelda / God of War rip off.

Re: Darksiders 3 (2018; PS4/XB1/PC)

Re: Darksiders 3 (2018; PS4/XB1/PC)

Darksiders 3 is Getting Two Post-Launch DLCs

Titled 'The Crucible' and 'Keepers of the Void', the two DLCs will include new environments to fight through, new challenges and puzzles to tackle, new items to unearth and new enemies to encounter once you've finished with the main Darksiders III storyline.

In Darksiders III, Fury is tasked with hunting down and vanquishing the Seven Deadly Sins, while in The Crucible, Fury will find herself summoned by an unknown entity to battle unending hordes of enemies to prove her combat prowess. Completing these challenges will unlock new rewards and items.

In Keepers of the Void, meanwhile, Fury is given a quest by Vulgrim to investigate an ancient threat laying in wait within Serpent Holes. New Hollows weapons and The Abyssal Armour are up for grabs for completing Darksiders III's second DLC add-on and dealing with the ancient beastie.

Game comes out tomorrow and there's little to no hype. A lot of bad reviews as well. Jim Sterlings first impressions video he didn't like it and Sterling loved DS 1 and 2.
