Yesterday I reported on a Darksiders III leak that looked pretty legitimate as it came from retailer Amazon. It turns out the leak was indeed accurate, THQ Nordic officially revealed the game through an IGN first trailer, which you can view at the bottom of this article. Darksiders III has a broad release window of 2018, so next year simply can't come soon enough.

The trailer confirms that we will indeed be playing with Fury tasked to hunt down the Seven Deadly Sins. Although the trailer doesn’t show off actual gameplay, it does show Fury using her whip to decapitate a foe, which corroborates the detail in the leak that she will be using a whip as her main weapon. The story description reads:

“Earth is now overrun by the Seven Deadly Sins and the mystical creatures and degenerated beings that serve them. 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 Four Horsemen.”

THQ Nordic is the publisher for Darksiders III, while Gunfire Games is the developer. The Co-Founder and Group CEO of THQ Nordic, Lars Wingefors, states: “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.”

Further, the Director of Business and Product Development at THQ Nordic, Reinhard Pollice, talks about the developer and the project: “The Gunfire team brings an intimate involvement with every aspect of the Darksiders franchise since its inception. 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!”

The developer has noted that more information will become available on IGN throughout the month and has revealed the first of the Seven Deadly Sins, namely Sloth, followed by a short description reading:

“His preference is to sit idle atop his throne, allowing his countless minions to defend him and even move him around inside his hollowed-out subway lair. Don’t let the bedsores fool you – Sloth is a mighty force when prodded into battle!”
