Now Playing: E3 2019: What We Expect To See At The Event

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 here and with other reviewers, 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.

"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."

E3 2019 starts on Saturday, June 8 with the EA Play livestream kicking off the convention. Be sure to check out the schedule to see all the latest announcements and game reveals.
