The original Darksiders popped up to wow the crowds when it originally released back in 2010, and whilst the sequel didn’t quite hit the same heights, it was still well received. Now though Darksiders III is on the cards and today THQ Nordic have not only revealed the release date, but a ton of other super cool goodies.

Being created by the development team at Gunfire Games, Darksiders III is scheduled for a November 27th 2018 release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. And if you wish to get your money in early, there are all manner of options available to you.

About Darksiders III

Players return to an apocalyptic planet Earth in Darksiders III, a hack-n-slash action-adventure where players take on the role of FURY in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins. The Charred Council calls upon FURY to battle from the heights of heaven down through the depths of hell in a quest to restore the balance between good and evil and prove that she is the fiercest of the FOUR HORSEMEN. FURY is a mage, her form evolving throughout gameplay and with it, her powers and weaponry. The expansive Darksiders III game world is presented as an open-ended, living, free-form planet Earth, dilapidated by war and decay, and overrun by nature. FURY will traverse back and forth between environments, battling other-worldly creatures and unlocking puzzles while advancing the Darksiders story.

See, THQ Nordic has launched a rather comprehensive pre-order campaign for Darksiders III, one that has been designed to reward a fanbase whose patience and loyalty is second to none. That will see those who pre-order Darksiders III at participating retailers getting access to the game, plus the FURY Exclusive Armor DLC – a completely original skin for FURY’s base armor that will set her apart and always be visible during gameplay. The FURY Exclusive Armor DLC will also be available on launch day.

Those who prefer to pre-order digitally won’t be left out though and they have access to no less than three distinct pre-order opportunities featuring exclusive in-game content, special discounts and 24-hour early access to Darksiders III. The standard edition delivers the same as the physical option above, whilst the Deluxe Edition brings 24 hours of early access, 12.5% discount off the price, the Fury Armor DLC, and two further pieces of DLC. Those on PC will also get the soundtrack thrown in.

And then we also have the Blades and Whips Edition which brings that of the Deluxe Edition plus both Darksiders Warmastered Edition and Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition, whilst PS4 players will get a free theme too.

But that’s not all and THQ Nordic has also created two, limited edition SKUs that celebrate all things Darksiders in every way. Mega-fans have their choice of the Collector’s or Apocalypse Edition, both of which include the following:
