Rumours on the leak of Darksiders III have hardly settled and THQ Nordic comes out and confirms that it is currently in development and can be expected sometime next year for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Darksiders III will be an open-world action RPG that will feature the Hack-n-Slash combat of it’s predecessors and will focus on exploration and environmental puzzles according to IGN. It will be set during roughly the same time as Darksiders II and will follow the story of Fury, one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, as she sets out to destroy the Seven Deadly Sins, which have taken physical form for the game, because of course they did.
THQ CEO and Co-Founder Lars Wingefors said they are happy to finally confirm the game after many rumours and speculations:
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.
The announcement also came with a cool cinematic trailer:
