[Update]: The new Darksiders game has been revealed as Darksiders Genesis - a top-down ARPG starring the gunslinger Strife!

While Darksiders 3 launched with quite a few problems, it has slowly but surely managed to transform itself into a rather interesting game. Nothing truly revolutionary or even that special, but as you might imagine, smashing through hordes of demons with completely ridiculous weaponry tends to be an engaging activity regardless!

With that in mind, I am happy to say that THQ Nordic has announced they're already working on a brand new Darksiders game! The details are currently few and far between, but we thankfully won't have to wait for too long in order to find out more as the new Darksiders game will be unveiled during E3 2019.

The reason I'm so intrigued about Darksiders 4 is that the only Horseman that remains is Strife, a character that pretty much only seems to use guns! While ranged combat has been a part of the Darksiders series from the very beginning, it has never really been the major focus, so an entire game built around a gunslinger character could be the sort of shake-up the series needs right now. Who knows, maybe it'll be just as insanely over-the-top as something like Vanquish!

When THQ Nordic releases the full announcement I'll make sure to let you know, but until then I'm afraid all we can really do is sit and wait.
