“Darksiders” was previously developed by Vigil Games and published by THQ. The franchise is now published by Nordic Games. So far, “Darksiders” series include two games following War and Death, two of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
The two games play very differently from each other. With War, you have to play more tactically since he is using brute force, being lumbering and slow. On the other side, Death is more nimble, wiry and quick, leaping from ledges and climbing over obstacles.
Ever since Nordic Games has revealed “Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition” for the PS4 and Xbox One, the fans of the game series has been waiting for news on “Darksiders 3.”
Game Zone shared that a developer at Gunfire Games/Nordic revealed on Steam’s discussion forums that the remaster “Darksiders 2” had testing if anyone was still interested. After acquiring the franchise, Nordic Games has been looking for options for producing a “Darksiders 3.”
The date of release of “Darksiders 3” is still uncertain, but players are already inquiring what the new game could include. The website Gameskinny speculates that “Darksiders 3” might focus on Strife, since War and Death already have their own games and there are four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and not only two.
Strife wields two pistols, Mercy and Redemption, and he is known for his excellent marksmanship. If “Darksiders 3” would have Strife as main character, then the shooting mechanics employed by the current games could expand to a more 3rd person style.
The game could employ a “Matrix” style diving mechanics and bullet time, being based on stylistic shooting. Maybe the standard “Darksiders” abilities could be mixed with wall running.
