Darksiders III release date, pre-orders and limited editions revealed

The long awaited third entry into apocalyptic action RPG Darksiders has at long last been given a worldwide release date.

Landing on November the 27th on PS4, PC and Xbox One, Darksider III puts you in the shoes of Fury, the…horseman (woman) of the apocalypse.

Along with the release the game will come with a pre-order bonus for those eager gamers as well as two special editions for the collectors.

The pre-order bonus for those purchasing from participating retailers include exclusive armour, an original skin and the likes, however for those that order from the PS and Microsoft store will get a choice of three for their bonus, those being Blades and Whip edition, Standard and Deluxe. This will provide a variety of dlc as well as 24 hour early access to the game. To be honest I find it a little obnoxious, over complicating the process for no good reason.

On the other hand, the collectors editions look pretty cool as detailed below.

Darksiders III Collector’s Edition:
*Premium Box
*Fury Figurine about 29cm – 11″ high
*Original Steelbook
*Artbook
*Soundtrack
*Darksiders III Game
*Exclusive Armor DLC; completely original skin replacing Fury’s base armor set (purely aesthetic, no gameplay impact

 

Darksiders III Apocalypse Edition:
*Premium Box ~117cm – 46″
*Wall Scroll – Fabric print with hanger 77 x 100 – 30″ x 40″
*4 Figurines: Fury (~29cm 11” high), Vulgrim, War, Death (each about 25cm 10″high)
*Heavy weight amulet 5cm – 2″ with necklace
*Original Steelbook
*Artbook
*Soundtrack
*Darksiders III Game
*Exclusive Armor DLC; completely original skin replacing Fury’s base armor set (purely aesthetic, no gameplay impact)

 

The game is looking pretty cool so far from the gameplay on show, and it’s great that the series is being continued despite its relatively unsuccessful past. So hopefully this will turn out great like the previous, only do a bit better in terms of sales. You can take a look at a short gameplay trailer below.

I started gaming with the release of the PS1 - Crash Bandicoot and Ridge Racer Revolution being the first 'real' games I ever set eyes on - and have been enthralled with the medium ever since. I particularly love strategy and horror games, the sort offered by titles such as Total War and Silent Hill, though I also have a soft spot for a good RPG. I studied Journalism at university in the hopes of progressing into writing about games, but my 'real job' is as a postman. You'll most likely find me covering indie games as I'm always on the look out for interesting little titles, and generally I stick to the PC and PS4 platforms. I'm not interested in MMOs or really any kind of online game, and I have an unusual and frankly worryingly expensive obsession with collecting gaming guide books, but aside from that I like to think I'm a well rounded average gamer.
