Darksiders 3 has risen from the ashes of the long gone THQ Publisher. THQ Nordic, the publisher who bought up the rights and changed their name, has just announced that Darksiders 3 will be released on 27th November 2018. Darksiders will be available on Steam, Humble and GOG for £45/60€/$60.
Darksiders 3 is being developed by Gunfire Games, which is made up of a bunch of ex Vigil staff, the original developers of Darksiders 1 and 2. This time around the player will become Fury, a whip wielding, magic blasting woman who is one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. You must help restore the balance between good and evil by destroying the demons and creatures pouring into the world. In its simplest form Darksiders 3 is a dungeon crawl with fast paced monster smashing and loot grabbing.
If you are a fan of the series and want to get a big box bonus collectors edition then you can pick up the Darksiders 3 Collectors Edition for a groin straining £130/150€/$150. It will include a 10 inch tall model of Fury.
I know what you are thinking, I want to spend more than £130 on game stuff. Well predicting your desire to spend more on Darksiders 3 collectable stuff THQ Nordic also have the following Apocalypse Edition option.
The Darksiders 3 Apocalypse Edition will cost a ball punching £350/400€/$400 and comes with a 10 inch model of Death, War and Fury, plus the Demon shopkeeper Vulgrim. It also includes the game's art book and a pendant and poster.
They are very nice Darksiders figures and they would look lovely on my shelf, but I think personally I might just keep the cash for now. I wonder, do these figures ever go up in value, making it an investment to the money smart gamer amongst us? I might do an article investigating that at some point soon.
Ok so Darksiders 3 is out at the end of November 2018 on PC, with 3 purchase options ranging from £45 up to £350. It will also be available on XBox One and PS4, currently with the same release date.
