Darksiders III will not have a mini-map; there are plans for a fourth installment


Maybe you missed something Darksiders III. After a couple of trailers and also some gameplay, fans have realized one thing: we do not see the mini-map.

Gunfire will force us to explore… and get lost

Both Darksiders and Darksiders II included a mini-map to guide players through the stages.

But Gunfire Games have decided remove the mini-map from Darksiders III so players can focus more on exploration without them just going to the targets.

Senior Designer Richard Vorodi brought this up again at his Gamescom 2018 presentation. “We didn’t think gamers would like it,” he explained. “We wanted the players to get lost.”

But don’t worry about not knowing where to go. There will be a tree in the center of the map that can be used as a reference point. It may not give you your exact orientation but at least you won’t be completely lost, although this is what Gunfire wants.

The world of Darksiders III is meant to be explored and this is one of the reasons the decision was made to remove the mini-map. This new installment will be full of secrets and the studio wants players to discover them naturally. This coincides with previous statements by Gunfire, who already assured that the gameplay will be more important than the story.

We have one rider left to meet

On the other hand, Vorodi has briefly commented on the future of the series and has made a statement that many fans have been waiting for.

“The plan has always been four” has stated referring to the four horsemen of the apocalypse that lead each of the games, thus assuming that there will be at least one more installment after Darksiders III.

We’ve already had a game based on War and another focused on Death. Darksiders III will have Fury (Fury), a replacement for the usual Famine. This just leave Pestilence, or in the Darksiders Strife lane (Fight), as the final horseman who could star in the hypothetical Darksiders 4.

Be that as it may, let’s go little by little and in a couple of months Darksiders III will be on sale, more specifically on November 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC with various editions.
