Darksiders 3 leaked with screenshots and details

Play as Fury, a female mage with a whip.

Darksiders 3 has leaked on Amazon (thanks, Gematsu).

 

The listing reveals the hack and slash adventure game alongside a raft of screenshots and gameplay details. There's what looks like a placeholder 31st December 2018 release date for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

 

You play as Fury, a mage who uses her whip and magic to restore the balance between good and evil on Earth. She's described as "the most unpredictable and enigmatic of the Four Horsemen". In previous Darksiders games you played as War and Death. (In the Darksiders universe the four siblings are Death, Strife, Fury and War, if you're wondering why Fury is the star of this game.)

 

Darksiders 3 is developed by Gunfire Games, the studio founded by the people behind original Darksiders developer Vigil Games, which went under after publisher THQ went bust. Nordic (now THQ Nordic) picked up the franchise and recently released Darksiders 1 and 2 remasters.

I don't think Nordic decides this.  They're not DEVELOPING it, they're just the publisher and I don't believe the original Red Faction devs are knocking on their door to make another.

In the case of Darksiders many of the developers who made the first two DID want to make a third but were laid off when THQ/Vigil went under.  They formed a new company called Gunfire Games and so Nordic is working with them to make this happen.  I think it's great we get a third game by largely the same developers as the first two.

12 minute pre-alpha gameplay video. Remember, this is SUPER early stuff. Things will change I'm sure.

The game is definitely lookin good. Environments are looking much more detailed than the previous games. Combat looks like it's still on the basic side though, which is understandable since it's pre alpha.

 

I think it would be awesome if they get the combat to feel like it does in Nier: Automata, killing ###### is so much fun in that game. It's so fluid and responsive.

The main character of DS3 is Fury and she is obviously female.

 

Why does it matter? You want male leads go play the first two which are both excellent games.
