In a surprise move, THQ Nordic and the remanants of Vigil Games, now known as Gunfire Games, have announced the new installment in the Darksider's franchise! Honestly, this is a franchise I never expected to see the light of day again but I would be lying if it didn't make me happy. The series has long been great at iterating on elements of other popular franchises; Zelda, God of War, and Portal all come to mind, but it's inspired visual style and world design, coupled with the more open-ended nature of Darksiders 2, always made up for what the series may have lacked in originality.
In Darksiders 3, players control Fury, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, as SHE struggles to take down physical manifestations of the 7 Deadly Sins.
Darksiders 3 is slated for release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018
