The third Darksiders game hits retail today, complete with the powerful Fury in the starring role. Ready to return to the scorched Earth?
Fast and furious
“The launch of Darksiders III marks the triumphant return of a classic action-adventure franchise – it has been a true labor of love for the teams at THQ Nordic and Gunfire Games,” said Reinhard Pollice, Darksiders Executive Producer and Business and Product Development Director, THQ Nordic. “Like much of the team, I started out as a fan of Darksiders, playing on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 when it was first introduced in 2010. Launching Darksiders III and both of its prequels on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One X today – in 2018 – means we are not only FINALLY satisfying an exceedingly patient and loyal fanbase but also introducing a whole new generation of gamers to the fantastical Darksiders universe!”
“Our team has spent over a decade bringing the story of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to life, and we still feel like we’re just getting started,” said David Adams, Darksiders Co-Creator and President, Gunfire Games. “Darksiders III has been so much fun to make, and we sincerely hope our fans love it as much as we do.”
As a fan of this series already, I’m amped to play out Fury’s part in the horsemen saga. The game flat-out looks great. Not only is there a new story to play through, but Fury came across really cool in early looks. Hopefully she lives up to that int he game itself.
More than that too, I’m particularly happy to see that Gunfire isn’t hoping to be just one and done. There’s a lot more to do in the Darksiders universe. That includes the so-far untold tale of one more horseman, and maybe even a capper arc. Here’s to hoping that we get more after Fury’s part in the story is done.
For now though, fans have a whole new quest to dig into. Darksiders III is out now on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
