Darksiders III Release Leaked by Microsoft Listing for November 26th 2018

It looks like Microsoft may have done it again with listing a game’s release date before it’s official release announcement. Just last week we had the leak for Sega’s Shenmue I & II from a Microsoft’s listing, it looks like we get another with the upcoming Darksiders III. The THQ Nordic action-adventure game, is launching on November 26th 2018 according to the listing on the Microsoft store.

The listings not only revealed the launch date but also three editions for the game. The release is the third instalment to the Gunfire Games’ Darksiders series which is a hack-n-slash adventure about an apocalyptic Earth and the quest to hunt down the Seven Deadly Sins. The lore is full of end-of-the-world myths including the Four Horsemen. The game features are listed below:

Game Features

  • 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.
