THQ Nordic will release Darksiders 3, starring a new playable protagonist named Fury, in 2018, according to a listing for the game on Amazon.

Darksiders 3 is coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One, according to the product listing. Developer Gunfire Games, whose work includes virtual reality game Chronos and the Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition remaster, is working on Darksiders 3.

Players will take on the role of Fury, an “unpredictable and enigmatic” member of the Four Horseman in Darksiders 3. Screenshots of the game show Fury wielding a bladed whip and exploring colorful, post-apocalyptic environments.

Here’s the description of Darksiders 3, via Amazon:

Return to an apocalyptic Earth in Darksiders III, a hack-n-slash Action Adventure where players assume the role of FURY in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins. The most unpredictable and enigmatic of the Four Horsemen, FURY must succeed where many have failed - to bring balance to the forces that now ravage Earth. Darksiders III is the long-anticipated, third chapter in the critically-acclaimed Darksiders franchise.

The game’s description includes additional gameplay details.

Play as FURY - a mage who must rely on her whip and magic to restore the balance between good and evil on Earth!

Harness FURY's magic to unleash her various forms - each granting her access to new weapons, moves and traversal abilities

Explore an open-ended, living, free-form game world in which FURY moves back and forth between environments to uncover secrets while advancing the story

Defeat the Seven Deadly Sins and their servants who range from mystical creatures to degenerated beings

Darksiders signature art style - expansive post-apocalyptic environments that take the player from the heights of heaven to the depths of hell, dilapidated by war and decay and overrun by nature

The listing includes a handful of screenshots and what appear to be concept art for Darksiders 3, which you can see in the gallery below.

We’ve reached out to THQ Nordic for comment on the leak and to verify the accuracy of the Amazon listing.
