Though Darksiders III released last year to mixed reception, fans will not have to wait too long to see the series take a new direction.
According to the E3 Coliseum webpage, THQ Nordic is set to unveil a “a brand new Darksiders game that takes the franchise in a fresh direction.”
While Darksiders is categorically a AA title, an anticlimactic announcement such as this still comes as a shock. Neither THQ Nordic nor developer Gunfire Games has yet commented on this soon-to-be-unveiled game.
The Darksiders franchise follows the four horsemen of the apocalypse: Fury, War, Death, and Strife. Those paying attention will note that only one horsemen, Strife, remains to be seen as a playable protagonist in the series. Unless this upcoming entry is a reboot, the likelihood Strife will take the lead is high.
Additionally, THQ Nordic recently confirmed the series’s place in the THQ family thanks to the last game’s solid sales performance.
OnlySP reviewed Darksiders III last year, calling it a “truly middle-tier” experience.
