Darksiders 3 didn’t go over well at launch, with our reviewer scoring the game a 4/10 back in November 2018. Despite the lackluster reception, the latest installment is certainly not the last in the action-adventure franchise. According to the E3 Coliseum, a new Darksiders game will be revealed during an E3 panel.
Called Darksiders: Action Adventure Evolved, the panel is set to address “the inception of the Darksiders universe and where it’s headed next.” It’s scheduled for Thursday, June 13 from 10:30 – 11 AM PT. While there are no concrete details about what to expect from the panel, the discussion will unveil the “fresh direction” the franchise is headed and coincides with the reveal of a brand new Darksiders title. The official panel description is below.
Darksiders: Action Adventure Evolved — 10:30 – 11 AM
A discussion about the inception of the Darksiders universe and where it’s headed next. This panel will coincide with the E3 2019 unveil of a brand new Darksiders game that takes the franchise in a fresh direction. This is a panel discussion about the art and business of creating and maintaining an action adventure franchise rich in-game and corporate lore.
In our Darksiders 3 review, we said, “There are remnants of a good game here, buried within the vivacious combos of a combat style this game doesn’t want to embrace. Unfortunately, it’s buried far too deep to ever salvage.”
