Darksiders 3 Outed By Amazon For 2018, Features a Female Mage Named Fury

Richard Walker

Darksiders III has been seemingly outed on Amazon for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, for release in 2018. The third game in the dormant series will apparently feature whip-wielding female mage Fury as its new protagonist, picking up where War and Death left off. Presumably Famine and Pestilence have popped down Tesco or something.

With Darksiders: Warmastered Edition and Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition remastering the first two games, you might have taken it for granted that Darksiders III would soon be a thing, but we didn't expect it to appear out of the blue like this, with screenshots and all. Of course, there's been no official announcement as yet, but it all looks very legitimate indeed.

Playing as Fury, you'll use her whip and magic, as well as adopting "various forms" according to the Amazon listing. These other forms grant access to new weapons, moves and additional traversal abilities, making it sound like Darksiders' signature Metroidvania gameplay will be alive and well for the sequel. The game's world is also an "open-ended, living free-form" one, if you go by the description.

Fury will also be pitted against the 'Seven Deadly Sins' and their servants, while the series' chunky, comic book style artwork will also be alive and well in Darksiders III. In development at Gunfire Games, Darksiders III is seemingly set for launch in 2018. For now, approach with a wee pinch of salt until an official announcment emerges, but this all looks pretty kosher to us, especially when you factor in the listing on the EU PSN for the 'Darksiders: Fury's Collection - War and Death', bundling the first two games for PS4.

  • Finally i'm very happy awesome franchise
  • Best news ever!
  • Very good to see there's still life in this series!
  • I feel like I was waiting for it forever! So glad to see this finally happening! And I was hoping for Fury for the third game so I'm happier. :)
  • It will be cool to play the first 2 games on the ps 4, before part 3 comes out. Great series.
  • Hype.
  • Very glad with this news ive been waiting for this ever since i finished Darksiders 2
  • Ohhhhh yes!
  • Looks like I need to start Darksiders II.
  • I thought the first image was Horizon Zero Dawn DLC footage at first, but I see the great images below it and look forward to this installment. I only ever played Darksiders. As some others have said, the remastered sequel may be something I play in the next year or two in anticipation of this.
  • Awwsome. I just got both games from humble bundle and I'm loving them. And I was just lookong for news about 3 two days ago, with nothing about it. Looks like I was a little early
  • @5 Well, you already can. However, the PS4 ports of them are pretty bad.
  • First game was awesome War was such a great character and the game was a right challenge on hard because it was backwards to me hard at first and got easier as you got more powerful, I didn't get to finish 2 because the PC version is a bugged filled mess especially the remaster version of 2 you can't play it without a bug crippling it. And may I remind it came from the new owners THq Nordic and at the moment the only they earned off both remasters has paid off to make this which I am excited about but I hope it's not a bugged filled mess without support they still have promised a patch for 2 on pc
  • Not a leak, its been officially revealed today as part of an "IGN First look"
  • I said 2 weeks ago Nordic is probably not making darksiders 3 I'll like to apologize right now. Now I have to eat some crow.
  • Ok so is Fury Famine or Pestilence!? Thats what I want to know. I can't wait for this. I really liked Darksiders 1 and 2.
  • @17 If i am not mistaken she replaces Famine
