The "Darksiders" series has its fair share of fans who wanted to see a third installment happen. It has been a long time since gamers heard any rumors about the franchise. The future of the series looked bleak as Vigil Games was closed about four years ago. Joe Madureira, the franchise's creative director, was able to talk about the possible features and details of a third game but was limited to speculations. However, a recent leak confirmed "Darksiders III" is on the way.

According to sources, Amazon mistakenly pushed the official page for "Darksiders 3" live before an official announcement was made. Shortly after the leak, the developers shared the first official trailer for the series new installment that showcased a new protagonist called Fury. The trailer and concept art for the game reveals that the new protagonist wields a whip as her main weapon. She will also have the ability to shift forms that grant her new weapons, attacks and abilities, says Game Rant.

According to the Amazon listing, "Darksiders 3" will feature an open-world approach this time around and a "free-form" adventure. Fury is tasked to battle the Seven Deadly Sins in order to restore the balance between good and evil. Gamers claim that the third installment will feature a story that takes place after the first game. Fans will also be glad to know that the development team handling the game is made of up former members of Vigil Games.

The game is reportedly being published by THQ Nordic, whose re-emergence according to reports raised rumors of "Darksiders 3". So it comes as a surprise that the leak revealed the game is indeed coming soon. The page listing on Amazon has also detailed the release date to be Dec. 31, 2018. However, other reports claim that it might just be a placeholder that could change anytime.

Polygon reports that "Darksiders 3" will come out for the PS4, PC and Xbox One based on the Amazon product listing. The leak has certainly pleased a lot of "Darksiders" fans who were hoping for a new game from the popular series.
